Sand blow fencing

You must erect sand-blow fencing at right angles to the prevailing wind direction. The fence must be constructed using either chestnut palings with a void to solid ratio of between 30% and 50% or using timber slats not more than 50 mm wide and with gaps of the same size. Posts should be long enough to allow burial to about 1 metre below beach level and to leave 1 metre above ground. You should inspect the fence regularly and remove any debris that may be caught up in it.
