Petaluma, CAOur Custom Wood Fence Panel #1-15 shown on a gradually sloping grade.

66″ ht – 4-Post arbor with insert ceiling and valance panel. Sonoma County, CA

Note: With sloping grades, the options are:
1) To maintain the square geometry of the panels and step the fence.
2) To feather the grade up at the low point of each step
3) To have the bottom horizontal rail run parallel to the grade.
4) And for the more dramatic slopes, to have all the horizontal rails run parallel with the grade, creating a parallelogram.

The two Fence Panels on the right show the grade with a more severe transition, where we’ve set the bottom rail to match that slope. This is Option ‘B’ under Sloping Grades.

CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN FENCE #1-15

Petaluma, CA

A rare snowfall in Sonoma County.

Milled specifically for Prowell Woodworks as clear, kiln-dried, vertical-grained cedar, with a minimum 20 growth rings per inch. Combined with the wood joinery for seasonal breathing and engineered for seasonal expansion, Prowell’s Western Cedar Fence Panels are indifferent to the snow, heat, rain, and humidity. Although this example has been finished by the homeowners, the decision to paint or stain is strictly aesthetic and does not prolong the life of the fence by one day.

Illustrating how the Wood Fence Panel is sloped to a dramatic grade, with transitions to level grades.

Wood Fencing on a Slope: Discovering the exact angle of a sloping grade, to the degree, requires returning to old trigonometry textbooks…calculating co-sines. You will need to provide:
1) The level run measurement (A level line the distance of the entire slope. This line begins at the high end on the grade.)
2) The rise. (A straight-edge at the bottom from the grade to where it intersects with the level line above. This distance from the grade to the level line is the ‘rise’.
3) We will take care of the trigonometry.

Terraced heights are not quite the same as sloping grades. They are often dealt with by adding a Transition Panel, as shown below. Softening the abruptness of the stepped grades. This is simply a stand-alone panel fixed to the post and the top of the lower panel.

Wood Fence Panel style #1-13 is one of the earlier examples, dated by the photo below of Ben. For several years following the development of the methodologies and designs, the commissions were all local bay area sites and predominantly Marin County. Charles installed these himself, often with Ben’s help. Learning not just the shop specifications, but those specifications for the installations that could be extrapolated into the eventual step-by-step Installation Guide that paved the way for a national patronage.

By 1998, Charles was nearing the end of field work. By then Ben was 12 and adding a small thrill to the process. But the truth of this product was in the shop, not the field.
