Chestnut fencing (also known as chestnut paling) is a versatile fencing option, which can be used as a permanent or temporary barrier to keep your dogs in (or out) and chickens in the garden. Chestnut fencing is unique due to its traditional manufacturing method and use of cleft chestnut, which is split by a grain rather than sawn. This process prevents water from penetrating the pores of the timber as chestnut is rich in sap containing oils so no further treatment is necessary.

This galvanised wire netting is very durable and long lasting and a must have garden essential. Wire netting has many uses in both industrial and home environments, such as divide spaces, aid young plants and it can even be used a protection around plants to prevent access from predators as well as a reinforcement for plaster and concrete.
