Jacksons Fencing, the UK’s biggest fencing and gate manufacturer, has launched a new hedgehog friendly gravel board. 

A gravel board is the protective barrier between the ground and your fence. The newly designed Jacksons hedgehog gravel board is the same as a normal gravel board in every way but has a hole at one end, large enough to allow hedgehogs to pass from garden to garden. 

With the hedgehog population dropping a third in the last decade, this product will give hedgehogs the opportunity to roam freely between gardens at night, crucial for their survival as this enables them to forage for food and find mates in order to breed.

Designed with a reinforcing strip along the top of the board to ensure it isn’t weakened by the hole and for use with all Jacksons fence panels and slotted fence posts (Jakposts). 

Jacksons Director, Andy Tune, commented: “When the issue of preserving the hedgehog population was brought to our attention, we understood the problem solid walls and fences could pose to hedgehogs.  This new product offers our customers the opportunity to allow hedgehogs to safely travel through their gardens without compromising the integrity of the fence.”

The hedgehog fence gravel board comes with the Jacksons Jakcure 25 year guarantee.

Corded tools = extenstion leads, plugs, cutting through cables, trip hazzards and also you won't be wanting to cut during rain.
Customers (IMO) won't be thinking very much of you professiona…"

"I'd take the spool off and see if that makes a difference, there may be an imbalance in the spool unit for some reason."

"I had someone ask me that very question yesterday as I was spraying the grass with my coveralls, mask and face shield!
I told her that I didn't think it was safe in the hope that she would instruct the factor to stop asking me to apply it.

"Paul, i dont know the hybrid 'tiger eyes' but Rhys typhina is a potential night mare. Agreed root barrier might well stop that happening but at any signs of that not working and it popping up elsewhere prepare for war :) "
