Timber Gravel Boards

Fence gravel boards are used to give a fence extra height and to some gravel boards add a finishing touch to a well put together run of fencing. Wooden gravel boards are not purely for aesthetic measures though, for instance gravel boards are made from a specific type of timber that when treated to a certain "class of treatment" is ideal for areas of the fence that are in constant ground contact. So if you install a panel with a gravel board at the bottom it does a fantastic job of protecting the panel from the elements on the floor.

Where possible, avoid cutting, drilling or notching any timber that will be in-ground, as per our 25 year Jakcure® terms and conditions. If occasional sections do have to be cut then Cut Treatment should be applied liberally.

Jacksons supply two types of wooden gravel board

The first is a gravel board for use with Jakposts (667600). This gravel board includes two spacer blocks stopping the gravel board from being able to move when installed in the slotted posts. These spacer blocks can also be purchased separately if spares are needed (667601). We also supply a hedgehog friendly version of this gravel board (667610).

When using more than 1 gravel board high to increase the height of the fence the gravel boards should be held together with a peg 600mm x 50mm x 50mm (644400) to prevent them distorting this should be placed centrally driven into the ground & the gravel boards screwed to it.

The second gravel board we supply is a 2.4m long x 150mm x 25mm gravel board (230700), usually used with traditional fencing such as traditional featherboard fencing. This gravel board does not work with our Jakpost system.

Please note that gravel boards need to be used when panels are in contact with the ground as part the 25 year Jakcure® guarantee conditions - more detail can be found on our Jakcure® T&C's page

A gravel board may also be known as a base board.

We've created the hedgehog friendly fence gravel board for use with slotted posts to allow hedgehogs to roam freely between gardens at night and also promote the fact that solid walls and fences pose a problem to hedgehogs and the hedgehog population. View the product below.
