Great news for garden lovers is that garden fencing has been made easier and faster than ever. Innovations in fence panels and fencing have allowed them to be erected hassle free. With so many different styles out there it’s important to know what attributes each style has.
Firstly, lap fence panels have become greatly popular due to the ease in which they can be put up. However, some people may be looking for something newer and more detailed. Closeboard fencing is a great option which many people are using right now as it is a sturdier option to lap fence panels.
Another factor to consider is views and restricting light in the garden. If you are looking for a fence which needs to cover a small area a picket fence would be an ideal option. This fence covers the part of your garden you need sheltering without blocking light. Its small size is ideal for keeping pets and children within a specific zone of your garden. It is also a great option for a boundary to an outdoor swimming pool.
A further option to fencing in your garden is to use it not simply as a barrier or boundary but to utilise it to improve the aesthetics of your garden. Trellis fencing is great for helping plants to grow as well as climbing plants can provide further beauty to your property. Alternatively, you can add this to the top of panel fencing for a brilliant finish.
Some people desire a fence which has a natural look and find most fences look out of place within their garden and property. Therefore, chestnut paling is an alternative which offers a natural feel which is also hard, robust and has a traditional look. However, this is a fence which is usually smaller in size to fence panels and perhaps might not be suitable if you are looking for privacy.
It is important to evaluate the environment in which you wish to place the fence as different weather conditions will dictate to a degree which fence is best suited to your plans. Exposed and windy areas obviously require a strong and robust fence. The posts and supports are also something to consider as once again windy areas would need perhaps a concrete post to hold the fence firmly in place, however these can be slightly more difficult to install. Finally, it is vital the posts are treated beforehand to prevent them from rot and the damage which can be done during the months of winter weather.
In summary, there are a lot of options and fencing out there, just make sure you fully evaluate your needs before buying. SABUNG AYAM
