SHROPSHIRE ESTATE FENCING

This fence is 1.2 metres high (4ft) with 1 metre between intermediate posts, every third intermediate post includes a welded on 150mm thrust plate post-creted in the ground.

It has a 20mm solid round top rail and four lower flat rails of 25mm x 6mm. Depending upon your requirements we can supply this fence with flat or round lower rails.

Our Shropshire Estate Fencing is our most popular fencing and is used by land owners, country estates and building contracts throughout the country.

It is robust and being slightly higher than our Hampshire Down fencing provides a real statement piece and a traditional long-lasting solution to creating boundaries in your land.

HAMPSHIRE DOWN ESTATE FENCING

This fence is 1 metre high with 1 metre between intermediate posts, every third intermediate post includes a welded on 150mm thrust plate post-creted in the ground.

It has a 20mm solid round top rail and three lower rails of 25 mm x 6mm flat. Depending upon your requirements we can supply this fence with flat or round lower rails.

Our Hampshire Down Estate Fencing is slightly lower than our Shropshire Estate Fencing and is commonly used on commercial projects, country estates and to separate gardens whilst not spoiling the view.

SHETLAND ESTATE FENCING

Our Shetland Estate Fencing is our most robust fencing and is an excellent solution when you require a fence to withstand heavy livestock. 

Heights and Rail Widths

This fence is 1.2 or 1.4 metres high with 1 metre between intermediate posts with 150mm thrust plates welded onto each post to give the fence maximum structural integrity. 

A key difference with our Shetland Estate Fencing is the top rail is made of 20mm round rail and four lower rails of 25mm x 8mm. This provides the additional strength to ensure it can withstand the weight of large cattle and lively horses. 

To further strengthen the fence for livestock such as Highland cattle we can also supply and install our fencing with 20mm round rail and 16mm round under rails.

DEER FENCING

Our 7, 8, or 9-rail Deer Fencing is also available where deer populations need to be protected and controlled. These fences are available in 1.6, 1.8, and 2 metre heights.

We also offer matching steel gates for our traditional estate fencing to complete the overall look of your property and land.

In addition to our standard fencing, we can fabricate and install any type of bespoke fencing to suit your requirements.

Estate Fencing Installation

Our continuous estate fencing is of the highest quality, with no clips or bolts.

We weld every rail, and every metre, offering the maximum structural integrity whilst providing seamless joints, so our fencing naturally flows with any land at any gradient.

How is Steel Estate Fencing Installed?

The installation of your estate fencing can be broken down into sections:

  • Area planning and setting out
  • Knocking in intermediate fence posts every metre
  • Feeding 6-metre rails through the intermediate posts,
  • Welding
  • Finishing touches such as chipping and wire brushing the welds, priming each weld and spray-painting the fence line with a topcoat (if required)

Estate Fencing Finishing Options

Untreated

Guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Left to weather, a golden patina naturally occurs that fits well with the countryside. This finish option requires no maintenance.

A small tin of topcoat for touching up is supplied alongside the delivery.

Fences are painted black as standard, although other colour options are available – please specify a RAL number when ordering.

Steel is hot dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 standards.

No maintenance is required.

A T-Wash option (lead effect) is available on request.

We’ve just had a beautiful new estate style fence and gates installed at our house through Steel Landscaping. We have been very impressed with the level of service and care delivered throughout the whole process. From talking initially with Edward around design and specification, through to the highly professional installation with Matt and Eddie, the whole team have been superb. The all-round knowledge, expertise and advice has been first-class. Thanks to all of you for a very positive experience. Would highly recommend this business to anyone requiring high quality fencing/gates at competitive prices.

Just had a woven steel partition installed to divide front and back garden. The whole project was set up by phone and email and scheduled to coincide with another local installation as we are c 250 miles south of Steel Landscaping's base. ... organisation and planning went very smoothly. The installation team were excellent. Polite, thorough, precise, efficient and interactive (regularly checking measurements with me) and coped admirably well with heavy mud and atrocious weather. I am looking forward to seeing the weathered patina develop on our weave which will be flanked by tall green beech and provide the backdrop to a herbacious border.

Top class service. Edward gave a very full quote explaining in detail what would be supplied and installed. This allowed me to make minor adjustments to enhance what we wanted delivered. Jake and Connor turned up when they said they would and fitted 60 metres of estate fencing over three days. It looks great. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steel Landscaping Co. Patrick

Edward and the team supplied and fitted steel edging for our drive. They have done a fantastic job. The edging is so neat and really robust. Edward was very helpful and easy to deal with booking the job and the guys on site were brilliant. I had been considering a self install option but I am delighted that I asked Steel Landscaping to do the whole job as the result is far superior. Thank you Ed and team.

Frequently Asked Questions

For structural integrity, helping give more rigidity to your fence as well as enhancing aesthetics, we supply 76 mm round or square end posts with different types of finials on top. Whilst 76 mm is the most popular, we can also supply smaller or larger-sized end posts for your fence line.

 

We use the same end posts for our corner posts, providing a structural and decorative point for when your fence changes to a sharp angle such as 90-degrees. All our end/corner posts are concreted a minimum of 2ft in the ground with each rail welded onto them.

Yes. We supply and install two different design options to prevent animals from getting out or in.

 

The more decorative option, which is particularly popular for around gardens is our 6mm round bar. This is a very fine rail that divides the gaps between our bottom main rails.

 

Our other option is our 2.5mm high tensile galvanised lamb wire to run between the bottom rails, tensioned using gripples. Lamb wire is nearly invisible from a distance. Either option can include as many or as few runs between each rail and as high as required.

Whilst the whole fence could not be electric, we can supply steel insulated curved arms which are welded on every 5 metres (for straight runs). These curve out from the estate fencing to prevent Livestock from leaning or jumping over the fencing.

According to the Government Legislation, you do not need planning permission to erect a new fence, or alter, maintain, improve or take down an existing fence, wall or gate unless:

  • Your fence height including trellis exceeds 2 metres (6.56ft) in height.
  • Your fence height is higher than 1 metre (3.28ft) and you live next to a public highway or a footpath.
  • Your house is a listed building.
  • You live within the curtilage of a listed building, or in a conservation area.
  • Your fence forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building

Mild Steel

Mild steel is made up of iron and carbon and is delivered to us as a raw material that we fabricate to suit our client’s requirements.

Without being treated (painted or galvanised), the metal will rust if exposed to the elements. Many clients prefer our products untreated to establish a natural golden patina.

Galvanised Steel

Galvanising is a process that stops steel from oxidation (rusting). Our mild steel is hot-dipped in molten zinc which creates a chemical reaction forming a very hard protective coating of zinc that is engrained into the steel.

This layer of protection provides a barrier of protection between airborne moisture and the steel, to make it corrosion-resistant and durable. Galvanised steel can be primed and painted in any colour.

CorTen Steel

CorTen steel is also known as the ‘weathering steel’.

Once exposed to the elements, CorTen steel forms a natural protective layer, creating a stunning patina of copper hues, rust, and bronze.

This protective layer is not only pleasing to the eye but also creates an exceptional barrier to corrosion whilst maintaining the utmost tensile strength.

Our CorTen steel products require no maintenance and will last a lifetime and beyond depending on the thickness of steel.

Many of our products, including Traditional Estate Fencing, Steel Weave Fencing, Deer Fencing, and Steel Railings are completely bespoke and made to measure in line with the specifications we receive from our customers. 

With this in mind, we advise all our potential clients to get in touch with our team and begin the process of getting your ideal estate fencing.  

Our bare metal steel products, whether mild steel or Corten, will take several months to establish a golden brown patina.

 

Atmospheric pollutants will impact the process, for example, urban areas and coastal locations will weather our steel faster than the countryside.

We strongly advise for cattle or any other animal with considerable weight, that you opt for our livestock estate fencing, where each rail is round and 20mm in diameter.

Each post also has a 150mm thrust plate welded on the bottom which will be knocked in under the ground with every 3rd post fixed in fast-setting concrete. This will make the fence more rigid, providing maximum structural integrity.

Our products are manufactured in the UK and made from solid steel for strength and longevity.

There are many different finishes to choose from with regard to our steel fencing, including bare metal (left to form a golden patina), primed and painted, galvanised steel and stainless steel.

Our most popular fencing is primed in our fabrication unit before arrival and then spray-painted on-site with a satin topcoat (various colours are available).

Our steel fencing will last a lifetime and will require minimal maintenance, however, whilst priming and painting provide good anti-rust protection, please note that our estate fencing paintwork will require maintenance eventually, depending on your location.

With bare metal fencing, the fencing is more likely to be affected by corrosion, however, it will create a golden natural appearance over time.

All our steel fencing is made from solid mild steel and will last a lifetime if painted or galvanised.

Steel products can be left to the elements to weather and mature naturally.

To select the right fence for an agricultural farm or a large estate, it is important to bear in mind the type of animals you have on the property.

For large areas of land, parks, and other types of estates, our Estate Fencing is recommended to help create boundaries and protect certain parts of the land from animal damage.

Plant and young tree damage is often the result of deer activity, and the most effective means of preventing deer from damaging your outdoor space is to exclude them entirely with deer fencing.

If the outdoor space is unfenced, tree guards are recommended to protect immature trees from deer activity
