The innovative, galvanised steel fence post system, DuraPost® By Birkdale has recently featured on ITV’s Love your Garden as part of a much-needed renovation. The episode aired on Tuesday 14th of September and the DuraPost® system was one of the building materials chosen to drastically improve the aesthetics and longevity of a family garden in Middlesbrough.
The renovation was undertaken to improve the outside space belonging to Phillipa or ‘Pip’, her husband John and two-year-old son Harrison. Pip was employed as a chef in the navy, but her career was cut short by the onset of a rare genetic condition, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. She has since dedicated herself to others, from running soup kitchens, helping disadvantaged children, to supporting causes for disabled people.
Pip desired a garden that she could access easily and safely in her wheelchair to take Harrison outside. Previously the space was bordered by 35m of dilapidated fencing in dire need of replacing. The Love Your Garden team selected DuraPost® and trained DuraPost® installer David Massey, of Massey Garden Design, fitted the system in Anthracite Grey. This was completed along with matching DuraPost® gravel boards, capping rails, post caps and cover strips to complement the overall garden design.
As well as having a modern and stylish fence solution, Pip and her family will also benefit from DuraPost®’s durabilty. Tested to withstand wind speeds of up to 110 miles per hour, the system is not vulnerable to the issues usually associated with traditional timber or concrete fence posts, such as cracking or rotting, because it is manufactured from cold rolled galvanised steel. Requiring no maintenance over its lifespan, Birkdale offers the system with a 25 year guarantee. Furthermore, DuraPost® is also a sustainable choice as it is made from 50% recycled steel and is 100% recyclable at the end of its usable life.
