Topping your existing wall with fencing is a great way to increase the height of a low wall for added security or privacy.
There are a variety of different methods of securing the fencing depending on the age and stability of the wall.
The horizontal Cedar trellis here is made up from individual batons, enabling us to follow the curve giving a beautiful finish to the top of the wall. Cedar is ideal for this because of its flexibility and strength.
Right shows Diamond lattice trellis panels with small "windows" as a decorative and reasonably lightweight top to provide increased height and privacy to the existing wall. As the wall was secure and sound the posts were fixed directly to the wall with Metpost sockets and the Lattice panels fixed as usual.
The wall below was much older and as the woven chestnut Kent panels are heavier and offer more resistance to wind they were fitted onto Oak posts and completely independent of the existing wall, but still increasing height and adding privacy.
Again here the posts are fixed behind the wall so as not to compromise the wall structure. The panels are made up from horizontal Cedar batons.
