Brush fencing is a natural material and you will need to maintain the roll top every five to seven years. If you leave it until the roll top has gone, you will expose the upright brush fence material to the elements and your fence will lose height, roughly doubling the cost of the repair.
In fact, a substantial part of our business comes from satisfied past customers contacting us to get their fence spruced up – retaining its effectiveness and their properties value.
In keeping with our high quality standards, when we do a fence restoration, we put in full lengths of new brush material not short off cuts as some other providers do. We do this because it ensures that your fence has a blended pattern of the older faded brush and the new greener brush. This avoids a two-tier, patched look that you see in some restored fences.

Regular Maintenance Is Needed For Fences
Let me ask you two questions?
- Do you have your car serviced regularly?
- Do you get your house painted from time to time when it needs it?
If you are like most people the answer to these questions will be “Yes of course”.
Well the same holds true for a brush fence. We you first installed your brush fence it looked fantastic, probably giving a natural and attractive backdrop to your garden and your property. But over the years it has probably started to deteriorate.
Is it looking a bit ragged? Are there parts of the fence showing that should not be? Is it becoming an eyesore – something that is now detracting from the value of your property?
Brush Fence Repairs: Needed Every 5-7 Years
Brush fences are made natural material and will deteriorate over time. How fast they deteriorate of course depends on the weather conditions in your local area.
Our experience is that the fence needs maintenance about every five to seven years.
Typically the capping of the fence is the first part to deteriorate. This is because it is most exposed to the weather and physical damage from the accumulation of decomposing material that grows or falls on the fence.
Here is an example of a fence that is showing signs of deterioration. Note the gaps between the wire which holds the capping together and the brushwood of the roll top.
It Will Get Worse And Cost You More Delay The Repair
It is advisable to get your fence repaired before the capping material deteriorates completely. This is because and the capping protects the rest of your fence and without it your fence starts to lose height and thin out.
Regular maintenance of the capping will save you money in the long run and keep your fence looking attractive while adding value to your property.
If you leave your fence until it deteriorates to the point where the capping has rotted away completely then you will either need to have the lost height replaced or you will get to the situation where nearly all of the brush will need to be replaced. This is a more expensive exercise than just replacing the capping. Happily that will still a lot cheaper than building a new fence from scratch.
Here is an example of a fence which has been left to deteriorate. I’m sure you will agree that it looks bad and will reduce the value of the property.
