The most common garden casualties during winter weather are fences. Strong gusts, storms and the weight of heavy snow can bring down posts and panels, which may have become weakened over the years, leaving you and your neighbours seeing into each others properties.
Some fences can be repaired and others will need replacing, depending on the structural integrity of the posts, and whether the wood is rotten or the concrete has degraded.
If it’s a shared boundary discuss your options with your neighbour. We always use treated timber at Secret Garden, as pressure treated wood is saturated with preservatives, which will last much longer than untreated.
We construct fences and screens in many different ways at Secret Garden. They can be used as a dividing boundary, as an interesting backdrop in your garden with lighting or art work, they are great for plants to climb up, and different materials can be used.
