One of our Wiltshire based Approved Installers 1st Aid 4 Fencing completed this beautiful install of a custom-made Pergola along with Convex Tongue and Groove fence panels, topped with our curved framed Trellis in Melksham, Wiltshire.

The customer had contacted 1st Aid 4 Fencing asking for advice on how to spruce up their driveway and garden entrance. They specified that they would like to keep an arch type design for their entryway into the property but wanted something special and unique.

Previously a large hedge and trellis separated the garden from the driveway. However, as the trellis grew older and the hedge more unruly, the boundary was starting to look tired and messy. The new fencing needed to provide them with more privacy and offer a smarter looking entrance.

Knowing that they were able to modify Jacksons products, the Approved Installer suggested customising a double pergola by adding 430mm trellis infill panels for the sides. This was a relatively simple modification from a standard double pergola, with just the rails and cross members needing to be adapted.

Driveway Fencing

Convex Tongue and Groove Effect fence panels create a decorative and smart looking fence, with the addition of a curved framed diamond trellis topper. The addition of Ball and Collar Post Caps help to provide an even more stylish finish but with a traditional feel. By using a diamond shaped trellis for the top of the fence and the sides of the pergola, this creates a cohesive design that brings the fence and pergola together to create one great entranceway.

Project details

The fence panels are 1.5m high Convex Tongue and Groove Effect which are 1.83m wide as standard, complete with 300mm high curved top framed trellis panels, and elegantly finished with Ball and Collar finials on top of the posts. As the driveway is sloped, the first three panels had to be stepped to follow the gradient of the ground. In total there were two lengths of fencing, 4.8m and 6.8m long.

The overall height of the fence is 1.94 metres, and this was produced from a combination of the gravel board (140mm), panel (1500mm) and topper (300mm). The side frames of the pergola were made from our Premier Diamond Trellis, in total the arch was 1.4m wide x 430mm deep.
