Closeboard fencing is renowned for its strength and versatility without sacrificing its appearance.

Often described as being one of the most cost effective types of fencing, due to the solid timber posts and rails which; if quality materials are used provide real value for money over the lifetime of the fence.

At Jacksons we believe garden fences are supposed to bring structure and definition to outdoor space, which is why it’s so important to choose a garden fence that complements your garden style and personality, whether its classic and timeless or modern and contemporary. The basic timber vertical slats of a close board fence represent simplicity and allow you to really experiment with your garden without it looking too lavish, because a close board fence will always bring it back to its traditional roots. (Bear this in mind if you regularly like to change your garden design, but don’t always want to change the fence to match). This style of fencing is traditional and versatile, known to complement a range of different home designs and garden landscapes of all shapes and sizes.

Cant Rails over Arris Rails every time

Closeboard fencing in more detail:

After manufacturing timber fencing for 70-years we can speak with authority on how fence panels, rails, pales, fence boards and alike are best made, after all we have the experience. At Jacksons our closeboard fencing is constructed using cant rails which are mounted then nailed directly into posts because we believe in maintaining the integrity of the timber we use making it easy to install by nailing directly into the panel.

Using an Arris Rail is made with an angle at the top to allow rain or sleet to run away from your fence but in reality this should not be an issue; if you buy pressure treated timber with a 25-year guarantee which protects against all wood-boring pests and all forms of wet and dry rot.

At Jacksons Fencing we refer to closeboard as featherboard fencing.
