Close Board Fencing is construction of posts, rails, gravel boards, and featheredge. Posts should be a minimum of 100x100mm (4 x 4) section and concreted into the ground at a depth of approx 760mm (for taller fence variations) and the distance between the post centers should not exceed 3.0m (10ft), for the best results.
Rails are then fixed horizontally across the face of the posts; usually two rails are needed on 1.2m (4ft) high featheredge and below, with three rails used on higher boundaries.
It is recommended to fit a gravel board at ground level between the posts, this serves to keep the featheredge from making contact with the ground, which will reduce future maintenance costs, because it is cheaper and easier to replace one gravel board rather than a large quantity of featheredge.
