On a gardening show i saw someone use something like a spray paint to mark a curve for a lawn. Maybe use a big bit of string or something. if you like the line you can then mark it. As long as your fence bits are the same distance apart i cant see how you can go wrong. However i have never done any gardening in my life other than pick litter up so hope someone else can advise as well.
Good luck.

Well the thing is, its about 20 ft long and needs to be curved, like a semi circle, there is one down the road from me and its perfectly curved, just wondering does the wood need curving or something.

Are you making the fence yourself? if so its a piece of cake, mark your layout, put the posts in then fix the curved support to the posts, then fit the panel bits (called pales) to the supports. (all seems much clearer in my head than on paper)


does this help

helps a little but where does one get the curved support from? - As in the rails from post to post that I attach the wood to make up the fence.

I've never seen curved rails. You could get thin planks which are pliable enough to have a gradual bend. How thin? well you would have to experiment...........too thin and it won't be substantial enough to take the fencing, too thick and it won't bend.

Alternatively use thicker wood but notch the inside to help it bend but that would be quite a bit of work if you don't have a router or sliding chop saw to make the grooves
