Concrete Gravel Boards

Concrete gravel boards create a barrier between your timber fencing and wet ground to prevent moisture from penetrating the surface of the timber into the core, which can cause rot and decay over time and shorten the fencing’s lifespan. By lifting the fencing off the ground using concrete gravel boards, you increase the lifespan of your fencing, saving you time and money.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you drill concrete fence posts and gravel boards?
Yes, you can drill through concrete gravel boards using drilling tools designed for heavy-duty work such as hammer drill and masonry drill bits.
What size concrete fence post should I use for a 6ft fence with gravel board?
The size of the concrete fence post depends on the depth of the hole required. A good rule of thumb is to dig the hole to the depth of 1/3 the height of the fence to allow for the concrete gravel board and the height of the fencing panel. For example, a 6ft fence would require a 2ft deep hole. This means you’ll need an 8ft concrete fence post.
