Agricultural, Equine, and Commercial Fencing


J. Down Contracting Ltd are the South West's leading chestnut fencing specialists.


We pride ourselves on using superior products, with high levels of attention to detail. We not only want to meet your levels of expectation but exceed them.


All stock fences are constructed using high tensile wire with at least 2.5mm line wires, which surpass UK standards for tensile strength. All wire is heavily galvanised to BS EN 10244 Class A standards.


The use of chestnut posts ensures the maximum lifespan for your fence. Not only do they offer outstanding levels of durability but also excellent value for money. Whether you want us to construct your fence or just provide the materials, chestnut is the most practical option.


Where tanalised posts have to be used for square sawn post and rail or customer preference, either a high percentage solution or redwood posts are used. Although not comparable with chestnut posts, these measures ensure maximum lifespan for these types of fences.

Flail topping / site clearance 


Maintenance of grassland is important. Reducing the number of docks, thistles, nettles and tussock grasses can significantly increase productivity, by allowing new young grasses to grow.


From one off topping to contract maintenance agreements, we can cater for your needs.


Site clearance is also available; areas of bracken, bramble and scrub land are no problem for out high capacity flail topper.
