Fencing is a key part of what we do.
HCB has experience in all types of rural fencing including split posts, post and rail, steel and concrete fencing systems. Advice can be given on different combinations of timber, steel posts, droppers, wire types and mesh to construct a fence which is stock proof, fit for purpose and within the client’s budget. HCB uses quality fencing materials that will increase the longevity of your fence. Our equipment includes a 80Hp 4WD tractor, Munro percussion driver and auger, steel post driver, chainsaws and all the necessary hand tools to get the job done efficiently and safely.
HCB has produced a variety of feature fences on properties for our clients. Concrete post and rail, PVC post and rail, split post and rail, sawn post and rail and colourbond are some of the materials utilised. We take care in creating for our clients a fence or property entrance that will be an asset to be proud of and will last for years to come. Timber farm gates can also be designed and installed to suit your needs.
