We provide you with the materials and tools needed to build your own woven steel fence simply and quickly. Erecting your own fence from the ground up provides a rewarding and unique way to achieve a stunning and cost-effective woven steel fence. You build your fence in just the same way we do, but we have omitted the need to weld using modified posts and rivet fixings.
Create beautiful flowing fences or short freestanding screens to any width. Build formal or curved raised beds and soil retainers. You can step both the top and bottom of the fence to cater for a sloped site or stepped top. We can deliver throughout the UK and further afield subject to delivery charges.
The options with this system are almost endless. If you have an idea, no matter how unusual, let us know and we will tell you how or if it’s possible!
Understandably most people feel a little trepidation taking on a new fencing system. Let us put your mind at rest. This is a forgiving fence to install. Our feedback from those who have used our kits find that it is an enjoyable and rewarding process.
1. Knock the posts in every 60cm except for the two end posts which should be around 40cm from the two inside end posts. Leave the posts just higher than the fence at this stage.
2. Weave the first layer of slats along the whole fence line, overlapping them by around 10cm at the ends. Cut the end slat to length if need be.
3. Continue working along the fence to achieve the desired height, cutting the end slats to length (if required)
4. With the fence woven, knock the posts down level with the top slat
5. Rivet the slats together at the joins using the rivets and riveting tool provided
6. Rivet the top and bottom slat to every other post
Building your woven steel own fence is a relatively quick process. As a rough guide, two people should be able to install a fence 10 metres long / 1.5 metres high in a day, with the weaving itself taking just a couple of hours. You may be surprised to know you rarely need to cement the posts in, simply knocking them in is fine. We strongly recommend a tubular post knocker. They make fast work of hammering the posts down and give you control over their angle too. We can supply these at cost or send you the link to those we recommend.
We will provide more detailed instructions with your order with tips we have learnt from installing hundreds of fences and we are always on the end of the phone if you need us.
Anywhere you would like a contemporary, stunning and totally unique fence, screen or raised beds. A woven steel fence will out last a timber fence many times over and will never require any maintenance. This makes a woven steel fence a great alternative to a woven willow or slatted cedar, oak and hazel fencing or instead of timber raised beds.
Here are just some ideas. Please get in touch to discuss your project.
Increase your level of privacy. We can supply posts with base or side plates for wall mounting, please enquire.
We can supply corner posts, or like here, you can simply flex yourself the steel to any angle.
We can also supply the following. Woven steel gates to your size. Corner posts for 90 degree bends. Additional end posts (if you have more than one separate fence section). Posts with plates for wall fixing. We can also cut slats to length which is useful for those looking to create short sections, raised beds or screen panels for example.
While the self build fence is typically supplied in mild steel, we can also supply Corten and stainless steel as well as Aluminium and Stainless steel kits.
For your interest when installing fences ourselves we use mild steel, all of the images on our woven steel fencing portfolio are mild steel with the exception of two. Some were taken before the steel had time to weather to brown which takes around nine months.
Please enquire for a prices on any of the options above.
Simply fill in the quote form, email us a sketch or just tell us the fence length and height with details of corners, angles and gates. During working hours you will usually receive your personalised quote in less than an hour!
Once the order has been placed we will ship the materials to you complete with a tool kit and instructions.

We asked customers for photos of their creations and some comments on their experience of using Steelscapes.
Please bear in mind this is a new system starting last winter so the fences have not had time to weather fully and their gardens look rather dormant. We will add updated images later in the year to show how stunning the fences look after a few months.
