Painting your fence is a great way of bringing a shine
back to the garden. Weather you choose a Honey Brown or a Dark Green, a fence
colour can help build up the scenery in your garden. Not only does a layer of
paint add beauty to the fence it also builds resistance to the elements which
is crucial for a long lasting fence line. Metal or Timber, painting your fence
is easy and low hassle.
The first thing we recommend you undertake is
pre-maintainance. This includes mowing the lawn and strimming the grass that
rests upon the fence line so that you can fully paint the panel. Before
painting we also suggest that you use a damp cloth and take of any dirt or
fungal build-up that will cause issues when painting, this gives a clean layer
ready to go. If there are parts of the fence you wish to keep clean from paint
such as handles then we also advise that you use tape and cover sections that
paint flickers may touch. Finally, painting sheets should be placed underneath
the fence to avoid any paint touching areas such as paving or decking.
The one thing we want to stress is... Pick a day that
it isn’t going to Rain! Otherwise your time will be wasted.

plastic fence. The enamel gives it a premium colour finish and is great for
long lasting results. Enamel is best applied using a paint brush to get an even

are paint brush, roller or sprayer.
If you have a large fence line then using a paint
sprayer is your best bet as this will get the job done quicker and gives an
even finish. If your fence is short or only a section needs painting then its
probably best to just use a paint brush especially if you need to get to
