Fenceposts, Stays and Corner Posts

Our posts are carefully chosen for quality and all are treated for ground contact. We are happy to discuss the timbers that we use and the milling and treatment processes.

The fence post that you see in fields all around Argyll is normally 1.65m (5ft 6 inches) long before it goes in the ground and the corner posts or strainers are normally approximately 2.25m long.

Deer fence posts are 2.4m - 2.6m and the strainer posts are 3.1m.

For a 1.8m high privacy fence you will need a minimum of 2.4m x 100 x 100mm posts.

We can find you sizes which aren’t listed here, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Please note - prices on this website do not include VAT. VAT is added in the checkout area and will be included in the total in the confirming email sent to you on completion of your order.
