Our client had just purchased the house in Marlborough and our brief was to make the garden dog-proof and a little more private with a small length of close board fencing (8m). In addition, we installed new hardwood iroko timber gates and oak posts; curved heel is the higher side of the gate to give a diagonal brace – just different! And we created an area to make a secluded bin store. Iroko is a highly durable timber with a medium oily texture. It is frequently referred to as African Teak due to its durability and appearance.
