Street side fencing in Blackfield

Fencing in Blackfield - Before we started

Fencing in Blackfield – The job ahead

We have done a lot of fencing in Blackfield recently. Having already worked for several of the homeowners in this street, we were pleasantly surprised to get a call asking for a quote to replace this very large fence. It was in a poor state of repair and parts of it had been taken over by shrubs and self seeded trees.

Our first job was to remove all of the old fence bays and take them away for recycling. There was then considerable hedging and self seeded trees that required clearing, stumps that needed grinding down, and then all the waste needed to be taken for recycling.

Installing the Fence

Installation time

These customers required a fence with concrete fittings as it would last a lot longer and also be more secure than the standard, all timber, close board fencing. All 41 posts were buried at a depth of two feet and all had to be broken into concrete due to the kerbed edging at the roadside.

The feathers used to make up the bays were 5 inches wide. All timber was Douglas fir, which had been pressure treated, leaving a neutral wood appearance. All panels were provided by a saw mill that uses a sustainable source of timber.

The finished project

We ended up installing approximately 400 feet of bay fencing. This was all securely held in place with concrete gravel boards and centre stumps. A standard height of 6 feet for the entirety of the fence length was continued throughout. Road access was maintained at all times and the build, and all work areas were thoroughly tidied and cleaned on completion. The project took 3 men precisely 2 working weeks to complete!

Here’s what the clients had to say…

“Good job. 100% improvement of fencing along boundary of St Georges Court Blackfield.”

“Very pleasant workers, did a brilliant job under difficult conditions.”

Landscaping – Garden Makeover

A customer from Lyndhurst, New Forest needed some help with their garden. The garden makeover comprised of clearance, hedge work, fencing, planting, turfing, hard standing, steps and a minor alteration to the current timber structure.

The customer wanted to make the garden pretty but minimalist and functional. She cared for a blind and deaf, aged gentleman and the steps had to be deep but not high whilst also not encroaching on her pre-existing briquette footpath.

Garden Structures

This customer wanted to do something for his daughter in order to tidy up her garden. The job required some jet washing and bleaching of patio and a bit of re jointing. They also wanted the
wall to be demolished to accommodate a veranda, picket fence and gates to keep the dog secure.

We received a glowing review on CheckaTrade for this work.


Here are 2 examples of clearances we have undertaken

This example in Southampton city centre was a simple “does what is says on the tin” clearance. The customer was from U.S.A and at the time of work being carried out was residing there. As with all our projects we provided him a live link to his project folder where we updated photos daily so he could log online and view them at his discretion.

Here is the review this gentleman left for us

“I asked A and J Montana and four other companies for a quotation to clear a terraced property garden in the Polygon area of Southampton, only A and J Montana and one other were the only ones to respond. Andres responded immediately and in a couple of days had visited the property and provided a formal quotation. They completed the work to an excellent standard. They provided fantastic project management feedback and photos so I could see how the work was progressing. This was essential to me as I live in the USA. They did a great job and I would highly recommend them.”

This is a more complex example of a clearance in Totton with a budget makeover afterwards.

Here is the review we received for it… “A& J Montana provided us with a first class service during the landscape renovation of a buy to sell property on our portfolio. They provided economic and comprehensive solutions to making good the land within our allocated budget and were absolutely sterling in their reliability throughout the project. This is not the first time we have used their services and we will be undoubtedly using them again.” 10/10
