Feather edge boards are ideal if you are looking to have a fully private fence with no gaps. Feather edge fencing usually requires flat capping rather than grooved capping. 125x22 refers to the size they are cut from so the finished size is 16mm at the side and approx. 6mm at the thin side. With a 25mm overlap this gives you a finished thickness of approx. 22mm where the boards join.

In natural light it is normal for wood to fade to a pale silver colour - it's perfectly ok to leave it like this, or you can stain it a colour of your choice provided it is suitable for wood. You may see small splits, warps or cracks appear over time, this is not uncommon for worked timber in quick-drying weather conditions. These will normally go back when humidity rises. Timber is a natural product and this is completely normal - it will not affect the durability or strength. Some perceived “flaws” are perfectly normal in wood. This is why the below list of features are completely acceptable and fall within industry-accepted tolerance margins:​

* Knots in the timber
* Providing they are less than 2cm and don't compromise structural strength, knots that have fallen out (holes can be filled with wood filler)
* Fading or blue-coloured patches from the treatment process
* Cracks and splits - provided they are not wide-open and cutting through the planks
* Torsion/warping that does not affect structural strength
