Case Study - Contemporary driveway on a slope fenced in using Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens

Product used: Western Red Cedar Slatted Screen Battens 19 x 38mm
Design & Build: Nick Webster, Botanica Garden Design
Location: Wirral

When designing a driveway for a customer in Cheshire, Nick from Botanica Gardens was asked to continue with the contemporary look that is present throughout the house's exterior. Clean, horizontal lines that are achieved using Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens quickly solved the fencing aspect of the design.

Adding to the aesthetic advantages, slatted screens made from Western Red Cedar are also well known for their longevity.

I have used Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar many times before, and I knew it would fit the brief and will last the test of time.

As the fence was built on a slope, it required experience and skill from the landscaper.

It was the first time that I built this type of fence on a slope. However after a few basic calculations and a sketch, the rest was easy! For anyone building this, I would recommend using a long level to maintain the accuracy; as well a construction drawing, which makes the job a lot easier to work out.
