In the garden, you’re carefully nurturing your plants through successive hot spells, acquiring a taste for barbecued food, enjoying some wonderful garden games with family and friends, and experiencing plenty of opportunities to top up your tan. In fact, it probably feels like you’ve never had it so good.

  5. Never Underestimate the Importance of a Garden Gate

    Never Underestimate the Importance of a Garden Gate

    Here at Buy Fencing Direct, we believe that your garden space should have equal status to any of the rooms inside your four brick walls. A room without a door would be unusual, to say the least, but if that ‘room’ is your garden space, which borders the outside world, it is unthinkable. This is what makes the garden gate so important, for a wooden gate is one of the main entrances to your property and helps form people’s first impression of your home. That’s not to say a wooden gate is purely for aesthetic appeal, far from it, for in a place as busy as the garden, practicality is also an essential requirement.

    Considering garden gates’ importance, therefore, we are proud to have a superb range of gates for sale, including traditional wooden gates,

    What sets a good garden apart from a great one? This simple question will doubtless receive countless answers, all of which could be right. But one answer that will crop up more often than most is trellis, often referred to as lattice. This criss-cross patterned frame is an incredibly simple idea, yet both remarkably elegant and wonderfully diverse too, allowing you to display truly beautiful plants in areas of the garden that might otherwise be out of bounds.  

    Trellis is a wonderful way to make a garden great

    Never Feed Lettuce to A Rabbit (And Other Dangerous Plants in The Garden)

    The majority of plants are lovely, friendly additions to your garden. All fluffy, colourful and pretty. Even sweet smelling. 

    Others are laced with danger. A little bit of research into potential newcomers, and existing incumbents, may reveal a darker side lurking in your beds, borders and containers. 

    Wisteria, lilies and foxgloves
