Fencing on Steep Sloping Plots

Fencing on Steep Sloping Plots

When you have uneven ground or a steep sloping plot you need expert fencing contractors to install your fence.

When installing fencing on a slope, there are two different methods that can be used depending on the style of fence chosen.
  • Raking: In this method, traditional fencing systems can be installed to follow the ground level in a gradual slope.
  • Stepping: If you are using panel form fencing with slotted Jakposts, it steps up or down depending on the slope.

To install stepped fence panels on slopes or hills, planning in advance is crucial. Measure the difference in elevation of the slope and then step down evenly. Alternatively, you can step down every few panels.

It is important to keep the panels level so that the top stays flat. Use a spirit level on top of the panel before screwing it into the post.

When stepping fence panels, the top of a fence post will become visible above each of the panels that have stepped down. Infill pieces are available to hide the gap. Measure each gap to be filled above the panel, cut the infill piece of timber to size, treat the end of the timber with an end grain preservative, and then screw or nail it into place
