Gravel boards prevent direct contact between fence panels and the ground to avoid moisture damage and give a professional finish to the fencing. Gravel boards are particularly importance for gardens that have damp, shady areas, or where there is a flower bed in contact with the fence, as moisture could otherwise penetrate the fence panel and cause the timber to rot over time.
Suregreen’s range of gravel boards include both tanalised pressure treated timber gravel boards and pre-cast concrete gravel boards. Gravel boards are best paired with our feather edge fence panels.
What are gravel boards used for?
A gravel board is positioned on the ground underneath fence panels to protect the panel against wet soil, debris, insect attack and rot; improving the lifespan of your fence.
Should I use wooden or concrete gravel boards?
Choosing between wooden or concrete gravel boards often comes down to budget. Whilst concrete gravel boards offer a longer-lasting, stronger, and more durable solution, they are generally a more expensive option. However, maintenance costs are usually lower as they will not rot or decay over time and do not require regular treatments to remain effective as with wooden gravel boards.
Wooden gravel boards are still a great option if you are looking to extend the life of your fence at an affordable price, but it should be noted that they will eventually rot over a long period of time.
