Guide To Garden Fencing


Lap Panel Fencing

For those of you who want to erect your own lap panel fencing but just need a few hints and tips on how to go about it, this guide is for you!

Lap panel fencing is easy to put up, offers good screening and great value for money - a popular choice all round. These ready-made panels are fitted between posts that have been
cemented or set into the ground. 75mm x 75mm posts come in two lengths - 1.8m or 2.4m. The panels themselves are usually 1.83m wide (but can be cut down) and are available in heights of 0.9m to 1.83m. In order to preserve your lap panel fence, don’t forget to treat it with a wood preservative on a regular basis but all fencing timber posts come ready pressure treated.


Featheredge Fencing

For those of you who want to erect your own featheredge fencing but just need a few hints and tips on how to go about it, this guide is for you!

Featheredge fencing consists of posts, post supports, rails, gravel boards and featheredge boards. The rails are available in 3.6m lengths. Although sections of fencing can be any distance apart it is recommended to work in 1.8m runs particularly in exposed, windy areas. This gives a shorter span between the posts and ensures durability.
