For those who haven't used it before, you should know that newt fencing is designed to protect endangered or protected species of newt. It is specifically used during development or construction projects, during which there is a risk that protected newt species could be harmed if they stray into working areas of the site.

An environmental survey is usually carried out before any construction or development project can begin. This survey may reveal that a protected species of newt living near the construction site could be at risk from harm because of the project. If this happens to you when planning a project, you will need to look into getting newt fencing to reduce the risk of harm to the protected species.

Unless you have ordered newt fencing in the past, you may not have any idea what qualities and features you should be looking for. First of all, you need to decide how long the project will take to be completed. This is how long the newt fencing will need to be in place.

If the project will be finished within two years, you will only need temporary fencing made of polythene sheet or woven geotextile materials. However, if it will last longer, a more durable permanent fence made of rigid galvanised steel or plastic will be needed.

Other considerations you need to bear in mind when ordering newt fencing are how to protect it from UV damage, and how to protect it from vandalism if it will be placed in a public area.

If you are a beginner to the world of newt fencing, you should not order newt fencing and install it yourself without speaking to ecological contractors or wildlife fencing experts. You will need their specialist skills, knowledge and advice in order to proceed.
