Fence Renovation at San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers – San Francisco, CA

Project Description

Scope of Work

Site Security & Fence Demolition

  • Establish equipment and trucking stage point each morning
  • Remove existing rusted, buried, and falling chain-link fence
  • Remove small organic materials
  • Cut one small area of fence to allow panic gate exit
  • 2 working days

Prep & Installation of New Fence

  • Set 4” square 11-gauge post in concrete footings at 8’ on center along sloping grade
  • Measure each slope for custom fabricated fence panels
  • Custom build dual top rail single bottom rail 8’ high with 1-1/2” Square pickets spaced 3-3/4” on center
  • Hot-dip galvanize after fabrication, followed by powder coat
  • Weld panels to posts and touch up welds with matching paint
  • Pave for new panic gate walkway
  • Install one exit gate with panic bar to match existing materials
  • 14 working days


  • Working on heavily sloped hillside- limited working space
  • Custom 3 rail fence panels following dramatic grade all hot-dip galvanized
  • Did I mention it was custom built to the slope of the hill? Meaning each picket and rail were spaced and aligned to follow a very specific slope prior to being hot-dip galvanized and powder coated
  • Welding in dry high vegetation area- fire extinguisher on standby!
  • Any mistakes in measurement or construction would have resulted in weeks of time added to work date- there were none.
