Southern Timber has become one of the South West's largest independent timber merchants. The business has grown quickly from its agricultural origins and now occupies a purpose built 2.5 acre site adjacent to the Ipplepen Business Park, near Newton Abbot. Investment continues in buildings, vehicles, employees and office technology to allow Southern Timber to respond to changes in timber supply and customer demands for timber products.
Our Field gates are diagonal braced five bar gates made from pressure treated sawn timber. The stiles and rails are mortise & tenon jointed for maximum strength and the top rail is made from 75mm (3") timber to minimise flexing. These gates are built for both strength and longevity.
Turned Heel gates
These Turned heel, or Devon heel, five bar gates are made from a planed, smoother finished timber than our normal fieldgates. They still utilise pressure treated timber and mortise & tenon joints, but their smoother finish makes them ideal driveway gates. They are also available to order in hardwood.

Other lengths can be produced to order - the sheet length made to your exact requirement up to 9.0 metres in length, although this longer sheets do become difficult to handle!

Stockwalling, also known as dungwalling this is a very versatile timber was designed for flexible livestock housing but is ideal for earth retainers in gardens and landscaping projects. Stockwalling boards have a TGV profile and interlock together ï¿½ stacked up behind appropriate sized posts they can make an effective retaining barrier very quickly.
Machined from home grown timber these stockwalling boards are a substantial ex 200mm x 50mm, not to be confused with some smaller products offered elsewhere. Length availability is normally 4.572 metres (a full 15ï¿½) and 6.1 metres (a full 20ï¿½) and the boards have a smooth planed finish.
All crosscuts should be treated twice with Ensele end grain treatment to maintain the timbers resistance to moisture.
