Grass Snake Fencing

Caudon® have produced a taller fencing specification specifically for Grass Snake mitigation. Based on our popular Amphibian & Reptile Fencing, it has been designed to provide superior quality barrier fencing systems to prevent the movement of Grass Snakes, contain them within a receptor area, or to facilitate trapping & collection.

As a result of feedback and consultation with ecologists, we have responded to the demand for a taller fencing system to contain grass snakes. Grass snakes are generally larger creatures than other reptiles and have been known to be able to breech a lower specification fence. Caudon® Grass Snake Fencing has all the other properties of Caudon® Amphibian & Reptile Fencing and is available in all the same levels of protection.

All levels of protection may also be used for other amphibians & reptiles where there is a risk of these breeching a lower fence due to ground profiles, un-managed vegetation growth or other ground factors.

As with Caudon® Amphibian & Reptile Fencing, all plastic materials are UV stabilised to help protect against degradation due to sun exposure and where possible are manufactured from post-consumer or recycled material.

Four levels of grass snake protection are provided by our Caudon® Grass Snake Fencing systems to offer the best and most economical products for your project, depending on longevity in the ground, budget constraints and its likely exposure to damage from site traffic or vandalism.

All of these systems are suitable for mitigation of Grass Snakes and/or Great Crested Newts, Smooth Newts, Common Lizards, Slow Worms, Adders, Common Toads, Natter Jack Toads.

Caudon® Temporary Grass Snake Fencing

Caudon® Temporary Grass Snake Fencing consists of 100m rolls of heavy duty UV stabilised polythene. This material is suitable for installation for up to 2 years. The height of the material is sufficient to allow the installer to create a ‘roll’ of material at the top of the fence, forming a top fold, preventing species from breeching the fence over the top.

Caudon® Grass Snake Fencing is available in clear or a green tint. There is no difference in the performance of the colours.
