Why choose an Aaron Closeboard fence?

The most widely used timber fencing in the UK, closeboard fencing gives you security, privacy flexibility and value.  This is the strongest and most versatile variety of timber fencing that we produce.  It is completely constructed on site and is therefore perfectly suited to sloping land where the fence can be erected to follow the contours of the ground. Correctly installed and properly maintained, a closeboarded fence should last for a long time.  It is fairly straightforward to erect, and can be tailored to suit your budget.
