The Slatted Fence Panels Boom

In the world of fencing, we have seen a huge boom in the number of home owners opting for slatted fence panels.

When you look at how gorgeous this contemporary fence panel style is, you'll understand why it is so popular and influential in modern garden design.

Minimalist? Simple? Classic? Modern? Definitely appealing.

The clean, horizontal straight lines are proving to be a big hit in gardens across the country. The most popular designs feature horizontal slats and double slatted fence panels.

An extra bonus is that this style of fencing is not only aesthetically pleasing but incredibly practical too.

Benefits of Slatted Fence Panels

Love Light

One of the downsides of conventional garden fencing is that it can block out natural light.

This prevents you from making the most of the sunshine and can also stunt plant growth.

Slatted fencing allows natural light to filter into the garden, benefitting both your family’s and plants’ well-being.

Allow Air Flow

Plants growing alongside a fence don’t always get optimum levels of aeration.

This can stunt their growth and spread disease.

Slatted fences not only permit natural light, they facilitate good air flow too.

Withstand Winds

Severe winds can damage conventional fence panels.

However, if the panel has a slatted design, the wind will pass through the gaps in the fence run, relieving pressure on the fence panel and decreasing the likelihood of damage.

Still Offer Security and Privacy

The beauty of slatted fencing is that it still provides an element of privacy and security.

For increased privacy and security, while still benefiting from the stylish slatted design, opt for fence panels with slatted tops.

To add further security, use the slatted section to support a prickly climbing plant. This will make it unpleasant and difficult to climb over.

Possibly the biggest selling point of slatted fencing is its appearance.

Clean, straight lines, with a fresh, contemporary style...what’s not to love about slatted panels?
