Garden fencing

Discover how to put up, maintain and decorate your garden fence.

Garden fencing.

Fencing is a quick and effective way to transform your garden. And with so many different styles and ideas, it’s easy to get started…

Fence panels

Traditional fences not only add protection and privacy to your property, they also help structure your garden. Use them as a canvas to add colour, or you can simply leave them as they are.

A cost-effective way to decorate your boundaries. They’re ideal to hang pretty fairy lights or outdoor accessories from, and they'll encourage climbing plants to grow, creating a beautiful flower feature.


By using natural materials such as reeds, you can create a softer barrier. They’re also easier to shape and fit any space. So, you can create a private spot anywhere you'd like.

Shop garden screens


Add the finishing touch to any garden with a mini fence. Borders are ideal for supporting flower beds, shaping the landscape or simply adding delicate detail to your space.

Top tips for putting up a fence

Check your boundaries

Make sure you’re adding fences to your own land. Or talk with your neighbour about putting up a joint fence (and split the cost). You’ll also need planning permission for fences over 2m high.

Safety first

Before you start, check for any hidden pipes or cables as you may need to rethink your layout. Invest in the right tools and double check your measurements to save yourself time, money and effort. An extra pair of hands are always helpful too.

Fence posts

There are two main options – concrete posts are tricky to put up but will provide more support. Whereas wooden posts are easier to move but run the risk of rotting as they’re buried into the ground. Post supports can help strengthen and secure your fence.

Treating fences

It’s recommended to treat dry fences at least once a year. This will help protect them from unpredictable weather, and keep them looking their best for longer.

Pick a colour

Spruce up your fencing with a splash of paint. Lighter colours are great for enlarging smaller gardens. Or try darker shades, so the colours of your plants can pop.

Light it up

String fairy lights around your fencing, to create a warm and cosy glow. By using solar lights, you can keep your garden bright, even on the darkest of nights.
