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.
Garden fence treatment
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.
