There’s a lot to consider when choosing your new garden fence. From fence posts and panels, to selecting a colour, height and required length, planning your entire fence is essential for a successful project.
To ensure you plan everything ahead and choose the best option for your outdoor space, we’ve put together a list of four must-have qualities for a great garden fence.
Your garden shouldn’t be an open invitation for trespassers. From criminals to nosey neighbours, garden fencing is the first line of defence against any kind of intruder.
The majority of burglaries are made through the back garden, so protecting your land with a secure fence is always a good idea. Intruders are opportunists and will pick on a garden that has low, weak, damaged, or easily climbable fencing over a tall and secure alternative.
In order to maximise protection, you should opt for a fence at least 1.8 metres high. But remember, if you’re planning to install a fence above 2 metres tall, you’re legally required to apply for planning permission.
