I have been asked to provide a quote for supplying and erecting a 83m long and 1.8m high chestnut cleft pale fence. Ive never done one of these before and was wandering if anyone had a rough idea how much the materials cost and how long it would take to erect? Just a ball park figure will do, thanks.
Not something I've undertaken either Chris, but here's a link re materials and prices. Good luck.
Normally use stakes would imagine you would need 2.4 m stakes every 1.8m. depends on ground conditions as to how long it will take. Quite easy to put up thou you may need to put straining posts in too. Below will give you a idea of cost.
You could also try AVS fencing I have used them before
try the woodland trust, see if they can put you in touch with a local coppice producer ,you may well find a bargin straight from the woods mate.
you may find some help here
Thanks for all the advice guys, much appreciated.
