Traditional fence panels explained

If you capture in your mind’s eye a classic garden fence, then you are thinking of traditional fence panels. These are the “standard” options in most UK gardens and provide a combination of durability, privacy, and security. Choose traditional fence panels for their versatility as they blend in with most garden styles, irrespective of their name, they also blend in well in modern gardens.

Here at Buy Fencing Direct we have the standard UK fencing sizes available. With fencing being 6’ wide, choose heights from 3’ to 6’ – so, 6’x3’, 6’x4’, 6’x5’, and 6’x6’ are your options. If you need something slightly taller, you can also buy fence toppers too.

Traditional fence panels are treated to ensure their longevity and ability to withstand the UK weather, choose from:

  • Dip treated – the exterior of the wood is treated with wood preservative. Although giving good weather protection, annual retreatment is required. Our dip treated traditional fencing panels are supplied with a ten-year guarantee
  • Pressure treated – every fibre of the wood is deep treated with wood preservative under deep pressure. This timber treatment means no annual retreatment is required. Offering superior levels of protection and minimal maintenance needs, our pressure treated traditional fencing panels are supplied with a fifteen-year guarantee

Traditional fencing design can vary from overlap style to more intricate closeboard, which we discuss below. Whichever fencing you choose, it is not just about function, they add an aesthetic touch to any garden.

Types of classic fencing

There are numerous types of classic fencing, below we discuss three main types – overlap, closeboard and tongue and groove.

Wooden overlap fence panels

These solid fencing panels are the “bread and butter” of UK garden fences. These are manufactured by overlapping of horizontal timber frames onto a sturdy frame. Their design gives them protection from strong winds and extreme UK weather. If you want a casual, unpretentious look which blends in and is not flashy then wooden overlap fencing may be for you.

Delivering the security and privacy you need, overlap fencing panels are also cost-effective. So, if you are looking for an economic solution, overlap fencing is a good choice. Being easy to install, wooden overlap fence panels provide a low-cost instant makeover in any garden.

Closeboard fencing

Another solid option to consider is closeboard fencing. These panels are manufactured with vertical edge feather boards that are tightly fixed to horizontal rails. Once again, their design ensures sturdiness and is great for privacy. Choose these if you live in a windy location as they will remain firm even in adverse UK weather conditions.

Now, if you are looking for a long lifespan, choose closeboard fencing. This design is seriously long-lasting, looks neat and tidy and has a clean appearance that blends in with most garden styles. So, choose between modern and traditional garden styles and have confidence that closeboard fencing will blend in without any problem!

Tongue and groove fencing

If you want fancy, premium traditional fencing panels then opt for tongue and groove fencing. Interlocking boards are used to make tongue and groove fences; they slide together smoothly to form a sturdy, gap-free panel. Their elegant precise design guarantees optimal strength and privacy, which makes them an excellent option for a strong and elegant border in outdoor areas like gardens.

Tongue and groove are a high-end option in fencing. Being more expensive the appeal and durability qualities are second to none. They give you the privacy and security needed, but as there are no gaps, they also shelter your garden from both noise and wind. This fencing also has a long lifespan and buy from us complete with a 15-year guarantee.
