Summer provides the perfect opportunity to get out there and tend to your garden. One of the chores on your list may involve treating fence panels. Just like anything else, your fence needs the proper care and attention to help it last for years to come; by taking the time to do it now you could be saving yourself money in the future. Here are some reasons why it’s so important to treat your fence properly.
If there’s one thing we can look forward to when the weather gets warmer, it’s finally making use of the garden. For months on end we sit at the window, longing for long evenings and cool beverages to enjoy with our family and friends, pining for a time where we don’t have to think about whether it’s cold enough for a coat or whether the heating needs to be on full blast at all times. But when that time comes, are you prepared? How many times have you rushed into purchasing garden furniture that only ends up breaking after one summer? The answer is probably quite a few. Instead, why not take a step back and contemplate a few features that will ensure your investment is a long-term one, not just a quick fix to make the most of the two-week heatwave that will end up rolling round in early September? Below, we go through our top three things to consider before buying garden furniture this summer.
When Constructing Garden Decking it is best to plan your deck on paper first. Decking boards & joists come in 2.4m, 3.6m and 4.8m lengths, so think about how you can best use these sizes without creating excessive waste or unsightly joints.
Make sure that your deck is not going to obscure access to drain/manhole covers. If your project requires you to concrete in support posts, you should check for underground pipes and cables. Very large decks and raised decks may require planning permission.
