Traditional Estate Fencing
Traditional estate fencing can maintain heritage, create a classical look to your home or provide a stunning boundary in parkland, paddocks and estate grounds.
Our estate fencing is an investment to your property, with all our steel fabricated here in the UK, made from the highest quality solid steel with the guarantee it will last a lifetime.
We have a wealth of experience and knowledge in supplying and installing estate fencing for stately homes, building contractors, homeowners, landscape architects and garden designers. We are committed to providing a professional service right from the moment you begin working with us, from the initial design stage through to installation.
We will always act with integrity and care when it comes to our clients’ unique needs; constantly thinking about the bigger picture to provide personalised, clear and considered advice across all our products.
Estate fencing has been popular since the Victorian era and in recent years it has become increasingly popular with landscapers, garden designers and property developers due to the clean definition it brings between formal areas, gardens and land boundaries.
Our estate fencing is timeless, creating a stunning focal point to your field or garden. It fits into most environments and can be installed on flat or uneven ground, naturally following with the contours of your land. It compliments your property and its surroundings whilst enhancing the aesthetics of any area the fencing is located in.
Whether you want clean straight lines or sweeping curves, steel fencing can provide the look you desire. What’s more, our estate fences can be finished in an array of ways to suit your property and land.
Bare metal (left to rust)
Primed and top coated
Galvanized & painted
Please contact our team to discuss your estate fencing options as we advise a site visit to ensure that we provide a comprehensive assessment of the project to provide an accurate quote.
Metal Estate Fencing from Steel Landscaping Co.
Our metal estate fencing is popular with bespoke builders working on new build homes, along with private stately homes and halls.
Our standard fencing is available with either 4 or 5 fence rails and is commonly 4ft (1.2 metres) in height and has round top rails with an option of either round or flat lower rails. In addition to our standard fencing, we can fabricate and install any type of bespoke fencing to suit your requirements.
The estate fencing is usually installed on-site and welded to ensure it has exceptional strength. The steel we use is fabricated in our dedicated facility in the UK, ensuring its quality.
We also offer matching steel gates for our traditional estate fencing to complete the overall look of your property and land.

According to the Government Legislation, you do not need a 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 conservation area.
• Your fence forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building.
Many of our products, including Traditional Estate Fencing, Steel Weave Fencing, Deer Fencing and Railings are completely bespoke and made to measure in line with the specifications we receive from our customers, therefore we advise to get in touch, so we can provide a quote in line with your requirements.
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 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.
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 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 aesthetically pleasing, 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.
Our most popular option is mild steel estate fencing, painted, however we also offer galvanized mild steel estate fencing, painted, or left solely galvanized, stainless steel or untreated mild steel, left to turn a golden natural patina.
Yes, unless stated otherwise. Our most popular choice is our zinc phosphate satin black finish, however if you require another colour, simply supply a RAL number and we can spray your estate fencing with this instead.
Alternatively, your estate fencing can be left untreated to turn a golden patina. Our fencing arrives on site with a zinc phosphate black primer undercoat before a 100-micron minimum top coating, sprayed after installation. All welds are chipped, wire brushed and primed before final spray.
Our standard fencing is available with either 4 or 5 fence rails and is commonly 4ft (1.2 metres) in height and has round top rails with an option of either round or flat lower rails.
Our standard estate fencing comes in a range of heights and number of rails:
1.4 metres high with 6 rails
1.2 metres high with 5 rails
1.2 meters high with 4 rails
1 metre high with 5 rails
1 metre high with 4 rails
In addition to our standard fencing, we can fabricate and install any type of Bespoke Fencing to suit your requirements.
Our most popular fencing consists of a 20mm diameter round top rail with 16mm diameter round or 25mm x 6mm flat under rails. The spacings between each rail usually decrease towards the ground, unless stated otherwise.
All rails are delivered on site in 6-metre lengths and fed through 40mm x 8mm intermediate posts driven into the ground at approximately 1 metre intervals, with every 3rd post to include a welded on 150mm thrust plate which is set in a fast-setting concrete.
For structural integrity, helping give more rigidity to your fence as well as enhancing aesthetics, we supply 76mm round or square end posts with different types of finials for on top. Whilst 76mm is the most popular, we can also supply smaller or larger size 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 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 on to them.
Our bare metal steel products, whether mild steel or Corten, will take several months to establish an golden brown patina.
Atmospheric pollutants will impact the process, for example urban areas and coastal locations will weather our steel faster than the countryside.
Yes. We supply and install two different design options to prevent animals 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 near to invisible from a distance. Either option can include as many or as little runs between each rail and as high as required.
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 and provides the maximum structural integrity whilst still maintaining a timeless appearance.
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 leaning or jumping over the fencing.
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 regards 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 provides a 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 protecting 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 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.
