We have worked on landscaping, fencing and planting projects on farms, rural estates and country house for a range of clients across the north of England for the past 10 years.

Haywood Contracting has upheld a good name in the region for quality fencing and has worked on a large variety of projects over the years. We specialise in stock and equine fencing so whether it’s an urgent stock fence repair, your entire farm re-fenced or some quality paddocks to keep your horses safe, we can help.

We are also experienced in aboriculture and have a vast knowledge in woodland and hedge management. We have worked on many planting and agri-environment schemes to help keep woodland, hedgerows and adjacent land healthy, to encourage natural habitat and enhance the local environment.


Haywood Contracting can supply and fit a range of agricultural fencing specifically designed for your individual purposes. A well-constructed fence provides you with a cost effective solution and Haywood Contracting fences are built to be strong, robust, tight, stock proof and durable. All our fences are erected with a post knocker for accuracy, speed, quality and efficiency. We are experienced in working with a variety of terrains and soil conditions from flat agricultural land and through woods to steep hill sides. We have post knockers on tractors and 360 diggers to cope with all conditions. We also specialise in equine fencing across the North East including riding arenas, fields, paddocks and building cross country jumps.

Our work has included on a number of quarry sites requiring fencing for ground re-instatement. We have completed a number of projects through the HLS Arable Reversion helping to put former agricultural land back to grazing and natural habitat. Our timber is pressure treated with ACQ 1900 and we only use Scots Pine for ground contact timber, ensuring the longest possible fence life. We are constantly monitoring the quality of our timber treatment to make certain our customers receive the best timber available. All our wire is sourced through Tornado who produces the largest range of award winning wires on the market today to guarantee a quality finish on all our jobs.
