What fencing materials do we recommend?
Closeboard Fence Panels are the panel of choice for most, they’re strong, durable and renowned for longivity.
Concrete Fence Posts are the go to fence post in the trade, they provide long life, zero maintenance and great strength.
Concrete Gravel Boards are the best option for giving your new fence panels the longest life possibly, they keep your fence panels off the ground and because they’re concrete, they won’t rot.
Concrete and wooden Fence Posts
Concrete Fence Posts are the strongest posts to support your fencing, however we know concrete isn’t for everyone. Lots of our clients feel that timber or wooden fence posts provide a more natural look. East Coast Fencing stock thousands of fence posts both concrete and wooden in varying sizes from 5’ to 10’.
Concrete and wooden Gravel Boards
Similar to fence posts, gravel boards are available in either concrete or wooden styles. Concrete gravel board provide the most protection for your fencing, but timber alternatives are also available.
Concrete Gravel boards come in two heights and a number of styles including the most popular recessed gravel boards. Timber / Wooden gravel boards are available in one height, 6”.

What makes garden fencing last?
Backing rails are the most important part of a closeboard fence panel.
Backrails are like the back bone of your fence panels so they need to be thick and strong.
Many online only fencing suppliers sell fencing or garden gates with thinner back rails because it reduces their stock price.
The back rails on our closeboard fence panels are almost 3”x2”. They’re pressure treated and they will stand the test of time.
Perhaps the most important part of our closeboard fence panels is that they're all pressure treated. Each and every peice of timber has been placed into a pressure chamber and had preservative forced deep into the timbers before being assembled. A pressure treated fence panel will last longer than a dip-treated fence panel.
A crucial component, yet often overlooked on DIY fencing jobs is a gravel board. Gravel boards prevent your fence panel from being in contact with damp or wet soil / grass which prolongs the life of your fence panels drastically, in many cases by up to ten years.
More about East Coast Fencing
East Coast Fencing was founded by our managing director and main estimator, Darren Allder.
Darren is a perfectionist and has instilled that into the core of our company. That exact principle is why we only accept the highest quality through every stage of contact with us from initial contact about a fencing installation or order through to actual installation or delivery
We strongly believe that it’s better to do something correctly the first time than to do it twice and live by the motto “the sweetness of low cost is soon forgotten but the bitterness of poor quality lingers”.
Expanding year on year, East Coast Fencing now have four full time fencing teams working in the following areas: Clacton-On-Sea, Frinton-On-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze, Thorpe-Le-Soken, Weeley Heath, St Osyth, Point Clear, Great Bentley, Wivenhoe, Arlesford, Colchester, Harwich and Dovercourt, Manningtree, Stanway, Boxted, Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh, Nacton, Braintree, Tiptree, Billericay, Witham, Malden, Chelmsford and often install larger runs of fencing as far as Eye in Suffolk to Basildon in Essex.
We openly admit that our fencing supplies are not the cheapest you’ll find, and we’re not the cheapest fencing contractors either. What we do guarantee is high quality and brilliant after care. We guarantee to do the job properly the first time round with the highest quality materials locally.
We manufacture our closeboard fence panels and only work with a few trusted suppliers for products we don’t manufacture.
We care about our impact on the environment and our waste management, nearly every item of waste is recycled in one way or another.
Old fence panels and wooden posts are shredded, composted, screened for any meta debris and spread on local farmers fields, old concrete posts and concrete gravel boards are crushed, steel reinforcing gets removed and is then used as hardcore for new projects, soil is screened and graded and then used on different projects, too.
