About Chestnut Fencing

Aesthetic Appeal

Cleft chestnut fencing offers a unique and rustic appearance that can complement any outdoor space. This style of fencing is popular because it’s very natural looking and doesn’t give off that manmade feel that many other types of fencing have.


One of the biggest advantages of chestnut fencing lies in its durability. Chestnut wood is known for its natural resistance to decay, insects, and fungal attacks. This resilience means your chestnut fence can withstand the elements and continue looking great for years to come with minimal maintenance.


Chestnut fencing boasts remarkable longevity. The wood’s natural density, tannin and oils contribute to its extended lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements. These types of fences can be expected to last around 25 years.


Choosing chestnut fencing aligns with eco-friendly principles; chestnut wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests, ensuring that its production has minimal impact on the environment.

Low Maintenance

Due to its resistance to decay and insects, you won’t need to spend time and effort on upkeep. Occasional cleaning and, if desired, a fresh coat of sealant to enhance its appearance are all that’s needed to keep your chestnut fence looking fantastic.


Chestnut fencing comes in various styles and configurations to suit your specific needs. Whether you’re looking to enclose a garden, secure your property, or add a decorative border, chestnut fencing offers versatility in design.
