I could be wrong, but there seems to be little or nothing about the sort of fences which have taut wires strung between concrete posts, with/without attached wire mesh and possibly with an adjacent or surrounding hedge. As I recall, they are common around the lower grade of council housing, so may excite little D-I-Y interest. John Stockton (talk) 19:29, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Some nice improvements there, but I think the notes on concrete should go back, they're useful info. Also some of the caveats re party wall act. NT (talk) 16:15, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

I have written about something I know about (featheredge fence) and then gone astray ...

- The caveats on the party wall act seemed fair, but misleading in their context here because they do not apply to fences ... I have moved them to the 'Regulations' page.

- I am troubled by concrete fences. I struggle to imagine a DIY person choosing to build a new concrete fence, but I've put the notes back. This leaves me to also find out whether the party wall act applies to such concrete fences, and clarify one way or the other.

I would expect the most likely DIY concrete option would be with traditional concrete posts, and gravel board, but with more gravel boards in place of where one would normally expect a wood panel. --John Rumm (talk) 22:13, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
