There's no doubt that with the coming of spring, that our minds tend to look to the future and the year ahead.
Whether you're preparing for the BBQ season, or are looking to refresh an often forgotten element of your home, there are a great many reasons why you should think about refreshing your fencing this spring.
In our opinion, there's nothing worse than a beautiful and well-kept garden that is surrounded by an old and rotting fence.
Whether you need to merely add some new paint, or a new layer of protection, letting your garden or property down around the edges can be an eyesore in the summer months, and ignoring it can lead to the quick deterioration of any good quality fence.
What's more, if you live in a particularly windy area (of which many people in Barnsley do), by protecting and refreshing your fence in the warmth of summer, you are also protecting it for when the winter winds come knocking later in the year.
It goes without saying that every once in a while, we all fancy a little change here or there, and by installing a new fence completely, you can do so quickly and easily with little to no stress.
When people come to us for new fencing, after a quick consultation with one of our garden professionals, the process of installing a high-quality fence can take as little as one to two days, depending on the size of the garden.
We often find that spring is indeed the best time to have a garden fence installed, as the change can quickly set the garden up for the rest of the year and allow the homeowner to make other, more laborious changes within the garden to prepare it for the busy summer season.
Again, going along with the idea of having a totally new fence installed, if you opt for a taller fence, such as one of our Double Sided Gap fences, or our Vertilap fences, you can invest in plants that can crawl and climb your fence.
With the simple installation of a trellis or some plant supports, you can plant a range of beautiful plants ahead of summer that can crawl and explore your fences, including: Californian Lilacs, Carolina Valentas, Virginia Creepers, Chocolate Vines, Pyracanthas
Of course, when you're considering which plants to buy for your fence, it's important to think about which direction they will be facing, as well as the kind of soil that you will plant them in.
