For maximum privacy, solid fence panels are the way to go. These panels do require hardier fence posts, however.
Featherboard fence panels are one of the most popular and versatile fence panels. Its appearance is neat and attractive. This overlapping style of the wooden boards makes sure that there are no gaps in the fence. If correctly installed, these fence panels not only look great but last a long time.

Semi-solid panels, also known as decorative panels are designed to frame the area they incase. A well-chosen decorative fence panel style can bring out the beauty in your garden, bringing everything together.

Another option is Trellis. Trellis fencing is perfect for growing flowers, vegetables, vines, and other climbing plants. A wonderful option for inside your garden. Trellis fencing can create the perfect atmosphere and ambiance when sunlight shines through creating a pattern on the floor.

When choosing a style of fencing for your garden, we highly recommend sourcing your materials from a trusted trader. Poor quality timber and materials can greatly reduce the lifespan of your fence. Spending a little extra on quality can mean spending less on repairs and replacements in the future.

Fence Maintenance

Years of wind, rain, dirt, and grime can really do a number on your fence. Not only will maintaining your fence prolong its life, but it will also improve its look and even property value. Preserving and caring for your fencing can really pay off in the long-run. Although many types of fencing are low-maintenance, wood fences usually require regular maintenance, especially in harsh weather conditions.

If correctly installed, your wood fence can last a long time. But, it’s important to look after it as warping, splitting, and leaning issues can leave your fence not looking its best.

You can either do it yourself, or you can hire AKB Property Maintenance to do it for you. Not only do we have experience when it comes to fence maintenance, but we also have the right equipment and tools.
