Fencing Essentials is a division of award-winning Bawden Contracting Services Limited, founded by Richard Bawden in the late seventies. At its core, BCS is a tight-knit, family-run business located in the heart of Wiltshire, with a reputation for service excellence spanning 30 years.   

 We began our story as a grounds maintenance and landscape gardening business, which still exists today in the form of Bawden Managed Landscapes.

Bawdens decided in 2010 to establish a dedicated fencing installation arm within its business - Fencing Essentials. Subsequently, it opened its' showroom in Amesbury, Wiltshire, where both members of the public and trade customers could view a wide range of high-quality fencing, gates and timber products and accessories before ordering them for self-installation.

The success of the materials supply business over the past seven years has led the company to develop this online shop where fencing products from top quality leading brands can be viewed and ordered for delivery to your door, or for collection if you live locally to our Amesbury, Salisbury, showroom. Providing everything from fence panels, garden gates, driveway gates, courtyard gates, fence posts and gravel boards to trellis, arbours, arches and pergolas, plus the accessories and materials you need to complete your fencing project, the Fencing Essentials online shop allows you to select quality, high-end materials at competitive prices. All our timber products are sourced from suppliers committed to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) scheme, purchasing their timber from sustainably managed forests. Where pressure-treated softwood timber is part of the product specification, this treatment has been carried out in accordance with British Standard 8417.

If you would like to see and touch the materials for yourself before ordering and are within striking distance of our Wiltshire showroom, we would be delighted to see you. You can visit us at:
