Innovative, modern brush fencing designs from sustainably sourced materials
Bowman Brush are the innovation leaders in the brush fencing industry. A family business established in 2000, the Bowmans have built a business around the modernisation of the traditional brush fence product.
The Bowman Brush Team
Supported by their dedicated staff in the factory, the Bowman family combine business acumen with ingenuity and engineering expertise to deliver superior brush fence panels and brushwood products to customers across Australia.
The team’s hard work in growing the business was recognised when they were named as finalists in their regional small business excellence awards in 2016. Bowman Brush takes pride in delivering the best possible panels, screens and brushwood products to the market.
Innovation in brush fencing production and design
Brush fencing is traditionally hand-packed onsite, with this heritage craft now evolving into a modern fencing solution. The Bowman family understood that hand-packed fences had many shortcomings and needed modernisation. So, they embarked on the development of custom machinery to produce high quality, prefabricated, modular brush fence panels and accessories, whilst maintaining the heritage look and feel of the traditional hand-packed product.
Bowman Brush offers distinctive, stylish brush fencing solutions and unique brushwood products. While traditional brushwood roll tops and post rolls are available in the Bowman Brush range, the team works hard to design new, on-trend options to enhance the modern landscape.
The Bowman Brush product range include an extensive range of composite materials, including steel panelling, decorative features and capping, along with modern production techniques to allow for cut-outs and niches within the panelling. More than just fencing panels, Bowman Brush also offer a range of quality, custom gate solutions and now extend the range into brushwood accessories and products including the enclosures range.
Committed to environmentally sustainable solutions
The Bowman family acquired an 1100-acre wheatbelt property, they’d previously helped transform from marginal farming land into a thriving brushwood plantation. A native plant of the region, melaleuca brushwood flourishes in its natural environment without the need for irrigation or chemicals. The plantation also serves to lower the underground water table, reducing salinity in the surrounding salt-prone soils, a further win for the environment. The team regularly expand the brushwood section of the plantation with its seedling program adding to the sustainability of the business.
Guaranteed supply of quality brushwood
Bowman Brush take pride in the quality of their materials, sourcing seed from the best performers in the plantation to grow seedlings in their partner nursery. The Bowman team then hand-selects only the best seedlings for revegetation of the plantation. This meticulous attention to quality has resulted in consistent access to a superior standard brushwood, which is not achievable with native sources.
The plantation also serves to safe-guard Bowman Brush’s supply against potential changes to government regulation of the harvesting of native materials – with cutting already banned in some states and strictly regulated in others.
Proudly Bowman Brush is currently the only brush fencing manufacturer in Australia solely using plantation grown brushwood. With their plantation having been established since 2002, the maturity of the plantation and the Bowmans’ knowledge of successful management of the melaleuca sets them apart as industry leaders in this field.
