I want a 2m high garden fence... Why are all the panels 1.83m?

Is the idea that I combine the 1.83 pannel with another board under it? Gravel boards don't seem to make up the missing 17cm...

What's the best way to get a 2m high fence at a reasonable price?

coz 1.83 m is 6ft, which I think is the maximum height for a fence (you might want to check that though)

Look at closeboard fences. Look much better than panels in my opinion and can go the full height required

2 meters is the max height for a fence by law but for some reason fence panels are made in 3 foot 4 foot and six foot heights still. Never mind when Bojo finally gets us out of the corruption we can all go back to £ s d and feet and inches. get rid of the rubbish foreign metric stuff. That'll confuse the kiddos and most of the people on here.

Yes and why are tyres measured in inches for wheel dia and mm for width?
To confuse Johnny Foreigner that's why!:sneaky::sneaky::sneaky::sneaky:

Both metric and imperial measurements are no bother for many of us, you old farts just need to lift your heads out of the sand.

Imperial has it's uses "give him a mm and he will take a Km does not have the same ring to it!
Stumped the 40 year old kids in skype quiz with how many farthings in an old pound, what was a farthing was the reply!

I'm sure the arithmetically competent are Capable of multiplying inches by 2.54 cm :LOL:

Back to LSD huh, well we abandoned that well before we joined EEC, so I doubt it.

You can go higher than 2m with planning permission.
