Strong Garden Fence Guide

There are so many options available, when choosing fence panels for your garden.

If you are shopping online, you can easily get overwhelmed with the many different choices you see. There are decorative fence panels, closeboard fence panels and lap fence panels. The main difference between closeboard fence panels and lap panels is that closeboard panels run vertically, while lap panels run horizontally.

The best way to make sure your fence posts are secure is to use concrete, or cement, pouring the concrete into the hole dry, then add water

There are many things to consider when choosing the best fence panels for your garden. The strongest are closeboard panels, but you must also consider the location, the fixings and the height of the fence to be installed.

fence panelsThe closeboard panel is the strongest fence panel for several reasons. A closeboard fence panel can withstand stronger winds before it will give out between posts. Closeboard fence panels are also constructed of stronger timber than lap panels. Closeboard panels can be fixed, or fastened with either clips or nails. If you choose to use clips, you should use 6 clips per fence panel. If you choose to use nails, you should use 14 nails per panel, seven on each side.

If you are installing your fence in a windy location, you might consider installing a fence that is lower in height, with a trellis at the top, to reduce the wind’s effects. For example, if you want a fence that is a total of 6 feet in height, you might consider using 5 feet of paneling with 1 foot of trellis. A trellis will reduce the wind’s pressure on the fence and make it last longer.

Another thing you should consider when installing a string fence is the posts. It is important to make sure that the posts are securely driven into the ground. It is recommended that a fence post be driven at a minimum of 2 feet underground. The best way to make sure your fence posts are secure is to use concrete, or cement, pouring the concrete into the hole dry, then add water. Once the cement dries, your fence post will be strong and sturdy.
