Bouthwood does fencing and hedging and can advise on the right approach to this to ensure your initial investment pays for itself in hedges and fences that are done properly.
What do we mean by "done properly"? We mean hedges that look right, are maintainable and support the right wildlife balance. We mean fences that use the right timber so that 5, 10 and 15 years from now your fence is still as it should be.
Sadly, many people are being incorrectly advised and are using timbers from questionable sources that have been "treated". We see these fences needing replacing after as little as 3 years.
We like to use a certain kind of larch that is essentially totally rot-resistant with no treatment. The natural oils in this wood give this water-repelling effect.
Equestrian paddock fencing in a modern natural and eco-friendly way that blends into the natural envrironment is also part of the Bouthwood land management portfolio.
