Fencing is essential to any home. With a fence, your garden becomes more than just open land; it provides security, and privacy and sets apart the property that you own.
Installing a new fence around your home not only deters trespassers and wild animals but can ensure the safety of your loved ones. There is a wide range of fencing options out there from post and rail fencing to security metal fencing like chainlink fencing/metal gates.
Not only do garden fence posts serve as the structural backbone for your fence panels, but they also take the brunt of harsh weather and heavy winds. Because of this, it's important that your fence posts are strong enough to hold up against whatever nature throws its way. We stock a range of fence posts - both timber and concrete - to keep your fence standing tall, no matter the conditions.
Wooden Fence Posts
Timber posts are a popular option in fencing. Sturdy and stable, timber fencing posts take paint well, meaning you can achieve your desired aesthetic with no fuss - serving as a decorative alternative to concrete posts. They can also be coupled with fence panels with a decorative feature for an instant, premium finish. For this reason, these posts also double up as gate posts, where necessary.
Here at Materials Market, our timber fence posts are pressure treated with Tanalith E preservative to prevent rot and prolong lifespan. We also stock a range of fencing supplies (from the panels to the treatments) to help you get your fencing project up and running.
If you're working with a tighter budget, wooden fence posts are also a more affordable option than concrete posts. If you opt for timber posts, we recommend that the treated timber is not cut or split before being embedded.
Concrete Fence Posts
Concrete fence posts give your fencing a solid foundation and set you up for years of durability. As a material, concrete bears natural resistance to rot, insect attack, rust, and corrosion, all assurances of its ability to stand the test of time.
Fencing Panels help you achieve the perfect balance of privacy, shade, and protection for your outdoor living area. Here, at Materials Market, we stock an extensive range of wooden fence panels in a range of different sizes to help complement your outdoor space and define its borders. Whether your project requires traditional or contemporary garden fence panels, we've got you covered.
There are a host of panels available on the market including:
- Closeboard fencing panels
- Picket panels
- Trellis panels
- Decorative panels
Feather Edge Fence Panel
Here, at Materials Market, we stock an excellent range of featheredge boards (also known as closeboard panels, shiplap or featheredge fencing). are one of the most prevalent forms of fencing in the United Kingdom. They are installed vertically onto a framework of posts with each board overlapping its neighbour, forming orderly lengths of fencing wherever it is needed.
Closeboard fences built from feather edge fence boards are conventionally more durable and robust than waney edge or overlap fences. This durability comes as a by-product of feather edge boards' construction and timber solidity.
Not only are these feather edge boards tanalised and pressure treated, but they also provide extensive protection against fungal decay, insect attacks, and rot.
Our feather edge fence panels double up as decorative fence panels thanks to their streamlined aesthetic and clean edges.

Frequently Asked Fencing Questions
What Is Acoustic Fencing?
When you're looking for peace and quiet in your garden or property, acoustic fence panelling is the perfect solution. Reduce bothersome noise from sources such as roads, motorways, industrial zones, schools or neighbours with high-quality panels that can cut sound levels by up to 28 decibels - restoring serenity back into your outdoor space.
What's The Difference Between Treated Timber And Non-Treated Timber?
Simply put, untreated timber is as it sounds; it is not treated with preservatives or chemicals. This makes it a more "natural" solution. Treated timber, on the other hand, has undergone a timber treatment enforced with chemicals and preservatives to ensure long service life.
Our treated timber is pressure treated using Tanalith E, producing tanalised timber which is protected from rot, wear, and pests. Dried Timber has been dried to specifically reduce moisture content.
Here at Materials Market, all our timber is treated with preservatives, kiln dried, and then planed all round to give it eased edges that make it easier to handle. Ensuring a high quality product that stands the test of time.

What Are Gravel Boards?
A gravel board is a wooden, concrete, or composite board used to protect your fence against wet soil, debris, and insect damage. Gravel boards are usually around 140-150mm in height and positioned underneath your fence panels.
In essence, gravel boards are utilised to improve the lifespan of your fencing; they act as a barrier between your fence and damp ground. The additional height helps to prevent moisture damage by preventing direct contact with wet soil.
