How to install a fence on a raised bank

Installing a fence on a rised bank is installed pretty much the same way as any other fence, the only key differance is making sure you add on the extra length required for the drop. Normally the minimum depth a fence post should be in the ground is 2ft, so a standard 8ft post would be sufficient for a 6ft high fence on flat ground. This fence however was raised 1ft off the ground due to the ground level difference between the two gardens.  An extra long 9ft post was used for this fence to be sure that the minimum depth could be attained and the fence retains the same stability as one installed in normal conditions.

A large amount of hedge removal was required before this closeboard fence was installed. This increased the size of the clients garden but also removed alot of privacy, which is why he opted to have 1ft trellis installed on top. The posts are bolted to the existing wall, so no posts were needed to be concreted into the ground, saving time and money. This fencing style was suggested as it was the most efficient and provided a strong and sturdy fence to last for years to come.
