Choose the best materials

For strength and durability, we always recommend hardwood when it comes to timber fencing. Excellent for outdoor use, many indigenous hardwoods provide natural protection against bushfires and termites.

When constructing a timber fence on a budget, we recommend the use of treated softwood pine timber. Lightweight and soft, treated pine is an alternative economical choice and easy to work with.

We recommend timber treated with CCA (Chromated Copper Arsenate). CCA treated timber protects your fence against bacteria, fungus and insects while offering some water resistance. Containing chromium, copper and arsenic, it’s unsafe to use CCA treated timber for indoor use or decking. It does, however, create the perfect protection for unpredictable outdoor environments.
