When was the last time you inspected your garden fence for signs of rot and fungal decay?
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.

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.
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.
Bare walls, fencing and obelisks are just waiting for a climber or two. Or maybe three. This little lot will clothe your naked vertical surfaces in no time at all. And that can only be good news.
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.

Enough about that though; we’re bored of reading overly dramatic articles about the snow. Nevertheless, one of the criteria of being British is talking incessantly about the weather; so, today let’s discuss the wind instead.
