Decorative garden fence panels are enjoying a huge surge in popularity of late. Stylish, high-quality, and eye-catching, it’s no surprise many are opting for these contemporary designs over traditional overlap or featheredge fencing.
Perhaps you’re looking to sell your property, and you need to replace your dilapidated current panels. Which option do you think will boost your curb appeal – standard overlap or striking decorative garden fence panels?
Maybe your back-garden boundary is looking a little worse for wear; would straightforward featheredge or exciting contemporary panels create a prettier frame for your flower beds and borders?
Roll Out the Red Carpet for Insects
Most bugs are great in the garden. Even the nasties are part of a bigger picture.
You can help keep this all in a healthy balance, and get your garden looking great, by building a bug hotel. Welcome them in, carry their bags to their room and always be there when needed.
You'll soon reap the benefits.
Why should I paint or stain my fence?
Any high-quality wooden fence you buy will carry a guarantee against rot and fungal decay. That’s because, prior to your purchase, the wood will have undergone one of two types of protective treatment: dip treatment or pressure treatment.
Dip treated wood will need re-treating annually for the preservative to remain effective. Pressure treated wood, although not for a considerable amount of time, will eventually need re-treating too. There’s no escaping it; at some point or another, all wood needs protecting from rot, insects, wear and tear if it is to remain healthy and main

Oh, you can’t tell me? Tut-tut, that just won’t do.
Unbeknownst to many, the greatest threat to any innocent run of garden fencing isn’t powerful, gale-force winds - extreme weather of this nature is so unlikely in this country - nor a swift, slat-splitting kick from a hooligan idly destroying every panel within a two-mile radius.
No, the true arch-nemesis of your fence panels and posts is far more banal. Slowly it creeps, until your entire fencing run is consumed, rendering it useless, and your pockets empty. Rot, is the most perilous hazard facing your fence panels and posts.

Be Prepared for the End of Summer with Garden Storage
Here at Buy Fencing Direct, we’re loving this summer every bit as much as you are, but we do feel duty-bound to offer you just the gentlest little reminder. We don’t want to be party poopers, or wish time away, but in around 2 months’ time, your new barbecue, garden furniture, games and tools will all need packing away.
Do you have somewhere to store them? You don’t? Well, don’t let that concern interrupt your summer, for, as always, we are here to help.
Purchase some new fence panels and your garden boundaries will look infinitely better than the rows of unkempt, dying hedges and tatty, warped, broken panels doubtlessly inhabiting almost every street in the UK. But your boundaries could look better still, with a little help from some carefully considered fencing accessories.
When you read ‘bedding’ and think of fitted sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers then perhaps you need to check out the haberdashery department. But if bedding conjures up images of containers stuffed with plants in a colour scheme reminiscent of an explosion in a paint factory, then read on.
