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?
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
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.
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.
We’re now at the height of what is proving to be a wonderful summer. Temperatures have hit levels not seen in decades, Wimbledon is in full swing, and the England football team has exceeded all expectations at the World Cup Finals. 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.
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.
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.
At Buy Fencing Direct, we love garden trellis so, understandably, stock a superb range of trellis panels and products,
The past few months have indisputably demonstrated that Britain can experience some peculiar weather. We have certainly had an unusual winter. 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.
Those of us living in windy spots, such as the North, the South West and high-altitude areas, have a number of problems to contend with. Choosing the correct fence panels is one of them. Many wou
After last summer’s project, your back garden now boasts a magnificent run of fencing; six-foot fence panels, gravel boards, matching fence posts and even finials beautifully frame your lawn, flower beds and vegetable patch. How about your front garden though? A threadbare garden hedge that’s been there for as long as you can remember? Clearly its time for an upgrade – wooden fence panels are the solution.

Every garden needs a shed. Sheds are such versatile buildings: providing extra outdoor storage space for tools, lawnmowers and garden furniture; creating impressive home-gyms or garden offices; as well as being a superb place to grow seedlings and complete other gardening-related activities.
But which garden shed should you choose? There is such a wide variety it can feel almost overwhelming, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. Even after you’ve decided on a size, you still need to pick between metal sheds, plastic sheds and wooden garden sheds. So, here’s our lowdown on your options.
