Our Story

A little bit about our history

The Contemporary Fencing Company was founded by Carpenter and Joiner David Head and Garden Designer Dominic Brice.  The pair worked together on a number of garden projects before they formed the Fencing Company.  One of these projects was a BALI Award winning garden (British Association of Landscape Industry) that included a Cedar slatted fence.

BALI Award winning garden

The fence was positioned in what was a dark area of the garden overshadowed by woodland. This was the first incarnation of our popular Cequence Bevel edge fencing. The edge of each batten being angled to allow light to pass through. This transformed the dark space into a light and airy garden area. Notice on the image below light passing through the fence panels and bathing the plants in light.

National attention

After the success in the BALI competition, there were many pictures of the Cedar fencing displayed online and in National publications.  The response was instant and the pair were inundated with calls from customers wanting to buy the Cedar fencing.  The problem was at this stage the fencing was not an actual product and there was a lot of assembly required on site.  The pair decided to take their popular slatted fence and turn it into an easy to install fence panel system.

The Cequence slatted fence system is now a fully Patented product that delivers unparalleled quality with a simple installation process.  If you look carefully at the pictures on our gallery you will notice there are no visible fixings on our fencing, the panels line up perfectly in horizontal lines every time.  This attention to detail and care comes from our total commitment to quality.  Our fencing is simply the best Cedar fencing on the market.

The Cequence range has now extended to include double sided slatted fencing and privacy fencing to offer more security, together with planters, seating and outdoor storage units and of course beautiful gates to match our fencing.

New Studio & Showroom

In 2021 Contemporary Fencing opened a brand new warehouse and showroom based in Herne Bay, Kent. The showroom displays all of our products including a wide range of Porcelain Paving, all of our fence panels in a range of finishes, our high quality gates and much more.
