merbau1Merbau,

A modern contemporary style fence.

Great for the modern architecturally designed house through to the humble beach house.

Normally fences and gates are built with the merbu running horizontally but it can be used vertically like pickets. Any other decking type timber can be used, Spotted Gum, Iron Bark, Cypress etc. in the same fashion.

The fence can be left to weather and grey off or alternatively it can be oiled periodically to hold its colour.

During construction it is really important that the merbau planks are predrilled before nailing. While this takes a little extra time the benefits for the longevity of the fence are huge.
