Hey y'all, I need some fencing in a run that slopes up slightly at one end (perhaps 18ins max change in level) and was considering using pvc gravel boards along tthe bottom. Then they can be sunk into the slope so the timber panels above stay clear of soil level and dont rot. Was thinking of dark brown, as I stain my timber that colour anyway. Anyone any experience of these? Do you have to use pvc posts with them?

Probably the same price as concrete gravel boards. I think I paid 6 or 7 pound a board. I don't think I'd use plastic ones tbh, they will fade etc and are they really light? Do they bend? Well the answers to all those questions are well known for concrete.

Think I'd agree with BBen auntieb. Plastic can get brittle too, over time and they'd be a pain to replace if they started breaking up.  I'd go for the concrete ones too
