Our project here was to erect a vermin-proof fence around the gardens at Iford Manor; The Iford Manor Estatenestles between Westwood and Freshford. It boasts a Grade 1 listed, Italianate garden designed by Edwardian architect Harold Peto when Iford Manor was his home from 1899-1933.
Our task was to erect 800m of 2m high deer netting with rabbit wire at the base which was dug into the ground to prevent animals trying to dig underneath. All on creosote posts.
Our task here was to replace a fence which adjoins a farmer’s field. So we had first to liaise with the farmer to find the right time for when no cattle were in residence. We then had a considerable job in clearing a large amount of old timber and chainlink fence along with the old hedge, conifers and bushes.
The total fence was 50m long approx. x 1.8m close board. Also included was a gate which now allows easy access to the field for the owners and their dogs.
