    Hi Guys,

    So i have my trenches dug amd in certain areas due to limited space for the digger the trench is dug a bit wider (80-90cm) - i have some old fence panels lying around.... Will these work to shutter the trench?

    It's a faff and maybe a lot of time, but you could drop a panel in, temporary prop it on the trench side (or top and bottom), and then carefully back fill with soil which will then hopefully support it when the concrete goes in.
