    We have recently built a shuttered concrete slurry tank, it is half sunk into the floor and looks to be tempting an accident.

    I have looked at galvanised paliside fencing and this v type fencing.


    https://firstfence.co.uk/new-mesh-fencing-1800mm

    Ball park 100m

    How long will the v type green fencing last? Its in a field and should be left well alone.

    Ideally want it with bolt down posts and i will thunder bolt it to the store.

    Any cheaper suppliers of this type of fencing?

    I was surprised that my safety advisor said that you only need a 4' fence. (That's 1.2 metre until Brexit when we get feet back!!).

    The one in your link looks to be good stuff imo should be fairly substantial and certainly far better and longer lasting than wooden posts and pig netting.

    You say half sink into the ground so is there a concrete “wall” above the ground too?

    Yeah there is a wall but it will prob get some soil banked up against it.

    I have an 18 month old son, and its not farm from the garden.

    The mesh isn’t strong enough to hold back much soil
     
  8. How did he say it had to be? I always worried about fencing around lagoons. Did it have to meet building regs of no gaps bigger than 100mm? 4” after Brexit
     
  9. Think they mean lagoon wall

    I ended up shuttering an 8 foot high wall around mine. Idea is it's safer than the green mesh cause cattle broke holes in the original and it will eventually be used for storage above ground as well as underground.

    I had a regs sheet for one once, it was about 1500 high with 3 strands of barb on top of sheep net.

    We have just put up 6ft bastion green fencing around our lagoo, it's 30ft from our back door and with children and dogs taking no chances. Wasn't cheep 8k job but looks substantial. Going to put crash barrier in front of the yard side of it over the summer. We were told green mess last at least 20-25years
