Timber is a classic and remains one of the most popular styles of fencing for more than 100 years.
Good old-fashioned timber is remarkably resilient even under harsh conditions and has a natural feel to soften up your borders while providing added security to your property.
Amazing Fencing is the team you should call if you want to enjoy the incomparable benefits of a timber fence. We take pride in our experienced team of builders and the premium-grade materials that we use. For supreme durability and quality, our timber of choice is the renewable plantation grown “treated pine”—treated to H3 and H4 levels in accordance with AS 1604.
A treated pine fence helps reduce greenhouse gases in the environment, making the surroundings cleaner and cooler.
As the trusted name in wood fencing, we bring you the natural charm of an expertly-installed timber fence that will enhance all types and styles of homes.
Building Blocks of a Timber Fence
Treated timber fences can come in a range of styles but the main components of a wood fence are consistent.
Vertical posts are set into the ground in order to support the rest of the fence components. For stability, the post must be buried at the correct distance within the ground. Horizontal rails that support either fence boards, pickets or lattice panels and are spaced depending on the fence height and design.
It is always recommended for a professional fencing contractor to install your new timber fence correctly.

A) Cap: While some people may think that fence caps are a decorative decision, as they sure look sharp, the cap of the fence is designed to protect the post’s vulnerable end grain from weather exposure which will increase the life of the post. Additionally, some fence cap designs can deter wildlife, like birds, from hanging around your fence top.
B) Rail: Rails connect the posts while supporting the pickets.
C) Post: Posts support all fence components as they are installed beneath the ground.
D) Pickets: Pickets are mounted vertically on rails and often have a pointed tip.

Character & Style of Timber Fencing
A wide range of fencing is available to meet your needs in terms of character, taste and style, including:
Colonial Fencing: Complement a colonial home with colonial-style fencing. Choose from a range of colours and features, including decorative pickets and post tops.
Lapped Fencing: Two layers of overlapped palings offer a practical, aesthetically pleasing and secure option for a boundary fence.
Lapped and Capped Fencing: Providing an improved visual appearance, lapped and capped fencing is a sturdier option, with the caps protecting the top of the fence and prolonging its life.
Paling Fencing: One of the most common forms of fencing in Melbourne, paling fences can be constructed at a height to suit your needs, ensuring you have the level of privacy you desire.
Benefits of Timber Fencing
Each style has its own benefits which include:
Design: Among all wood fencing materials, it is perhaps timber that works with virtually any style of home. It’s highly versatile and apt for any design issue. Timber can be used for a broad range of functions, from basic fencing, to stylish lattice designs.
Privacy: Solid timber fences bring you the peace of mind that your privacy is always in check. As they can be built up to 2.4 metres high, many people prefer this fencing style to reinforce their home security.
Gardens and Backyards: Timber provides exceptional thermal profiles for gardens and outstanding windbreaks for exposed areas. Unlike other types of fence, timber is an excellent heat reflector.
Character: Nothing can match the timeless character quality of timber.
Ease of Installation: Timber fences can be installed practically on any site, even on difficult sloped areas.
As the authority in wooden fencing, Amazing Fencing has a comprehensive range of premium fences made exclusively from plantation grown timbers in an effort to preserve native hardwood forests.
Sustainability: Timber fencing are easily maintainable and put minimal pressure on carbon emissions at all production levels.
Weather, termite and decay resistant: Modern treated pine fences have extreme resistance against termites, fungi, and bores. The treatment prevents the material from decaying for decades under extreme hot and cold weather conditions.
Noise Reduction: Timber is a dense material with a great acoustic property, which substantially reduces road and traffic noise.
“We are very happy with the completed fence on all 3 sides of our property. Also a great compliment to the 2 guys that did the work. It’s great to see guys that have the work ethic and attention to detail that these men have. That site has been left in good condition after the amazing muncher that cleaned up all the old fencing in such a short time.
We would glad recommend your company to other customers.”
– Helen and Barry Law, VIC
“When I bought a fixer-upper home I was in need of a more modern and durable fence than the dodgy looking wood fence that was currently in place.
Amazing Fencing assured me that their treated timber fencing would be far more weather resistant, more durable and easier to maintain than the existing one, which was revealed during the quote inspection to be untreated and likely a DIY job.
After my beautiful new lapped timber fence was installed, my ‘fixer upper’ is well on its way to becoming my dream home.”
– E. Maddison
“My wife and I received our free quote from Amazing Fencing and were happy to go ahead with the quoted price – very affordable.
The entire process from requesting a quote through to installation and clean up was easy and stress-free. We are both quite pleased with our new timber fence, especially the lattice detailing!
We would be happy to recommend you to those looking for a quality timber fence and professional workmanship.”
– J & M Forester, Gold Coast, QLD
“I have a large family with both small children and pets – so when the backyard’s fully enclosed wooden fence started losing pieces, I knew that I needed to get it replaced as soon as possible for both family safety and for appearance.
The crew at Amazing Fencing not only helped me choose a timber fence that would compliment the style of our home, but were also very accommodating of our busy family schedule and pets.
We have recommended Amazing Fencing to a few of our friends who have complimented our now completely re-fenced yard.”
– T. McAurthur, Brisbane, QLD
“My family recently adopted a very rambunctious new puppy and so we decided that it would be a good idea to install a fence that kept her from getting into trouble. We sent an online quote request to Amazing Fencing and in no time we had a sturdy and attractive timber fenced yard that keeps our new family member safe.”
– K. Malloy, Gold Coast, QLD
“It was very easy to deal with, accommodating to our and our neighbour’s changes, flexible payments, and easy communication with the office. Two guys who worked at the site – Sani and Tau where very hard workers, neat, polite, done their job very well, can’t wish for a better team! I was worrying about my plants which where too close to the fence line, but Sani and Tau had done amazing job to keep them all alive and healthy. I really appreciate it knowing it took an extra effort to get around them. The fence is looking great and all greeneries along it too! Thank you, Amazing fencing!”
– I. Shparlinski, NSW

“Very pleasant fence builder, he was mindful of not letting our dogs out and was helpful to clear the worksite and not create too much mess. At completion there was some material left over for collection this meant that the pot plants etc were not put back. I’m very happy with the fence that was constructed.”
