Not only do we carry out maintenance and development projects for clients, businesses and ourselves, we also carry out more tasks such as replacing fencing on a small or industrial scale. Choosing the correct fencing for your property is one of the most important estate management decisions that you will make either on a large scale such as farmland, or on a smaller scale in your own garden at home. It will ensure that your property (no matter the size) remains more secure throughout the year.

This could be replacing a fence panel in your garden that has been blown over in the wind, to farm fencing, all the way up to a large paddock having fencing put around it to prevent horses leaving. Whatever the size of the job, we will do it. We source the highest quality materials possible and design and implement fencing of all styles and sizes.

Fencing Types

There are many different styles of fencing, the most common you see is the regular fencing panels you see in a garden, up to a post and rail type of fence, pictured here.

Post and rail fencing are one of the most popular fencing types that customers can opt for, as it can be easily cut to the size that you require, it has great versatility and tends to be the most affordable. It can be used for separating livestock or even just for a smallholding. Get in touch with us to see if this is something that you may require or would like more information on.

Fencing Mistakes

One of the biggest mistakes that people can make when choosing or installing fencing is that they choose the wrong fencing, or that they install the correct fencing but install it too low. Dependent on the requirements, having fencing to the appropriate size and ensuring you have the right kind in place could prevent a multitude of problems in the long run. If you’re unsure what you require, you can get in touch and we can help with advice on what is best suited to your requirements and environment.

One very common mistake is leaving damaged fencing and not fixing it. Fencing is used to enclose areas, be it your garden or your farmyard, and as a result you are able to keep your privacy and enhance your property’s security. The issue here is that if you leave damaged fencing, you run the risk of it being compromised much faster, reducing security, privacy and costing you much more down the line.

Wooden Fencing and Concrete Posts with Mud Floor

Another common mistake we see is that the fencing has been put up correctly, but without secure anchoring on anchor posts. The issue with this is that if you don’t have a secure anchorage on your posts then the fencing will become unstable and much more prone to breakages and it not doing the job that it was put in place to do. If this occurs, you end up having to do the job twice. We advise having somebody fit your fencing to ensure it is safe and secure, and at George Staffordshire Developments we can help you to choose and then install your fencing and ensure it is fully secure and capable of withstanding the elements.

Paddock Fencing

Paddock fencing isn’t always used strictly for farms or paddocks. It is commonly used in residential applications where there is a need to maintain visibility across grounds to a certain extent. This fence style can be found enclosing most farms which have either horses or livestock, as they protect both the animals and the people on the opposite side.
