New Closeboard Fencing on Timber Posts, Dorchester

New Closeboard Fence

Here is another job that has been recently completed by Mintern Fencing and Sheds’ team of highly experienced fencers – a new closeboard fence in Dorchester. Timber posts have been set in concrete, with each bay being fitted with bevelled rails and a wooden gravel board to help to protect against ground level moisture and dirt.  The fence has then been clad with feather edge and finished with capping to the top of the fence. All timber that is used has been green tanalised pressure treated, meaning the fence generally requires less maintenance as it is already protected against the elements and pests.

Hit and Miss Fencing with Trellis, Poundbury

Horizontal Hit and Miss Fencing

Mintern Fencing and Sheds Ltd provide a wide variety of styles of fencing to our clients. Here we have an example of a job that our team have been working on for a client in Poundbury . They would find the wind passes through and batters this area of their garden, meaning fencing has previously failed. To combat this issue, our team have erected ‘hit and miss’ fencing, leaving 2 inch gaps between each timber to allow the wind to flow through. Heavy duty trellis has been added to the top of the fence to provide extra privacy for the client.

Concrete Hard Standing Area, Corscombe

New Hard Standing Area, DT2

Mintern have recently completed works for a client in Corscombe. The client had their own greenhouse that they were waiting to have installed so therefore required a hard standing area for it to stand on.

All existing slabs and concrete were removed from the property, and then the team has built a timber framework to a suitable shape to support the greenhouse. The ground has been dug out and removed with the timber framework then being installed to the dug out area. Mintern Fencing and Sheds have then filled the inside of the framework with concrete, creating a level hard standing area.

See below for the concrete base now featuring the clients own greenhouse.

New Insulated Garden Office, West Camel

Fully Insulated Garden Office

Mintern Fencing and Sheds Ltd have recently completed works for a client in West Camel, BA22. Our team have constructed a new fully insulated garden office structure from 3×2 tanalised framework on top of a concrete base. The floor has been clad with tongue and groove, with the sides of the building being clad in 14mm thick green tanalised shiplap. The roof has been clad with tongue and groove and then covered with a rubber roofing system (EPDM). To insulate the garden office, the walls and roof have been fitted with polystyrene insulation. The garden office structure also features white uPVC double doors with a lock and uPVC opening windows.

The great feature about this insulated garden office is that it has been joined to a custom built garden shed that Mintern has built in previous years. From the below pictures, you can see how tanalised timber weathers to a golden brown colour to over time, to eventually have a more grey appearance.

Anti Slip Decking, Milborne Port

Anti Slip Decking and Raised Flower Beds

Mintern have recently completed works in Milborne Port for a client who required new decking. The Fencing and Sheds team have dug the ground where required in preparation for the new decking framework, which has then had new level framework built from 100mm x 47mm timbers. To create extra strength the timbers have been bolted the the walls around the property edge. The framework has then been clad with charcoal and red anti slip deck boards. The anti slip provides an extra level of safety, reducing any potential risks in dangerous weather.
