Choosing the Best Fence for your Boundaries.

16 July 2015



When considering the construction of a new fence along either the side boundaries or back
boundary of your property, there are some important points which first must be considered,
especially if the line of the fence is on a sloping site.

Are there any specific council regulations for my property?

Most councils have a height restriction of 1800 mm high boundary fencing, although there are
areas in which a higher fence can be constructed. The best way to find out if there are any
specific regulations to your property is to contact your local council.

Am I limited to having a CCA treated pine timber paling fence?

Not at all! Whilst timber fencing is the easiest fencing option for a sloping site, other
fencing to be considered if privacy isn’t an issue is chainwire fencing, and for complete
privacy and a fence that will remain solid for many years you could consider a Modular Wall.
Aluminium or timber slat screen fencing is another modern alternative, and Colourbond fencing
offers complete privacy and is available in a range of many colours.

Can Colourbond fencing be installed successfully on a sloping site?

Yes, but on mildly sloping sites only. Another aspect to consider is that the stability of a
Colourbond fence can be compromised in a high wind area.

Once you have a fence in mind that will suit your site, your personal taste, and have discussed
the options with any neighbours who are adjoining your property, contact the friendly staff at
