EXETER FENCING FAQS
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
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
- 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
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,

What happens to the old garden fence, do I need to hire
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
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.
