Site clearance and fencing : Nature Reserve, Chelford
A busy October saw us take on a project at a local nature reserve in Chelford, Cheshire. Prior to the fencing installation the team had to clear large amounts of vegetation, including hedges and brambles, using specialist equipment and machinery. Vegetation clearance is something we have vast experience in. Our specialist knowledge and skills in this area helps us choose the correct clearance method to suit our customer’s specific needs. It’s something we offer as an additional service, often a very popular option for people choosing to install fencing on a new site. Due to the delicate nature of the reserve and potential animals being hidden under the hedge growth extra time, care and precision had to be taken to ensure no harm would come to any living creature or its habitat.
Following the clearance, high tensile netting – using two strands of barbed wire – was used to border the perimeter of the reserve. In modern fencing, high tensile wire is a game changing material as it can be strained much tighter than milder steel materials ensuring strength and durability. The two strand barbed wire lines the top of the fence, this is then tensioned by intermediate posts every few metres along the fence. The barbed wire is a popular choice when used alongside other fencing types such as post and rail and stock netting because it helps prevent animals rubbing on the fence and it also acts as a deterrent therefore enhancing the safety of both animals and humans. For any enquiries regarding stock netting or vegetation clearance please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!
