Wire and batten fencing is one of the most common types of rural fencing and is stock proof for sheep, cattle and horses. Generally 2.5 mm or 3.15 mm high tensile wire is used, though horse fencing may use 4 mm soft wire. Ground Up Services LTD uses industry best practice installation techniques combined with carefully purchased materials. For smaller properties you may prefer a post & rail option or a combination of the two.(See our post & rail section for some ideas)
We can supply an all inclusive price of labour and materials, using selected materials from our preferred suppliers. We can also provide Labour only pricing if the client prefers.
We are experienced in manual jobs, when machinery and equipment cannot get on the fence line, normally due to steep terrain.
Ground Up Services LTD uses NZ made products including WIREMARK wire and PermaPine posts and battens. The reasoning behind this is product longevity and meeting industry standard quality.
