Here are some of the typical questions that we often get asked prior to starting a new fencing project. If you still have a question then please contact us as we are able to draw on a wealth of experience from our knowledgeable garden fencing team.

Do I need planning permission for my garden fence?
Planning permission is necessary in certain instances:
  • If the height of the fencing will be more than 2 metres.
  • If the fencing will be over 1 metre high and next to a road or footpath.
  • If there are planning conditions relating to garden fencing set in your neighbourhood by your council called 'article 4 direction or planning condition'.
  • If your house is a listed building or if your property is joining another property that is a listed building.
What If there is sloped land to deal with, will the fence be stepped?
When installing fencing that is on a slope, depending on the gradient, we would recommend customers the best product for the job. On a steeper slope we would recommend that a pre-formed fence panel (e.g. overlap panels) should not be used. We would recommend Arris Rail fence would be the best suited to most jobs as this style of fence construction can follow the contours of the land.
Do you do supply garden fencing and garden posts without fitting?
No, Park Lane Garden & Fencing Services will only supply materials for the installations contracted.
Do you do fit garden fencing without supplying the materials?
Yes, that is a service Park Lane Garden & Fencing Services can offer, however this is for larger commercial contracts, there are terms and conditions.
What happens to the old garden fence, do I need to hire a skip?
Taking rubbish and disposing of it responsibly at approved commercial waste sites is a service we offer. We aim to separate 100% of the materials in the rubbish so that we can transfer them to dedicated recycling facilities for maximum landfill diversion.
What kind of garden fencing warranty do you offer?
Park Lane Garden & Fencing Services offers a one year installation warranty, however we do not offer warranty on any of the material supplied but you are welcome to inspect the materials on arrival to the contract. If there are any defects or problems that you are not happy with, then they will be exchanged.
How soon can you start my garden fencing project?
Park Lane Garden & Fencing Services aims to commence a contract within four weeks from the date received by us, according to the season. Some seasons are quieter than others so could be as little as a five day waiting period.
Can you install the fencing outside typical business hours?
No. Park Lane Garden & Fencing Services installation hours are Monday to Friday: 8am-6pm, Saturday: 9am-1pm but we will try our best to service and accommodate your needs. Our garden fencing installers hours vary but they can only work within those hours, keeping disruption to your neighbours to a minimum.
Do I need to be at the property while the new garden fencing is being installed?
No, providing our installers can get access to the site and can get power for tools if required.
Do I need to tell neighbours my garden fence is being replace?
We do recommend talking to your neighbour prior to starting the work. This can prevent problems arising.
