Fence Panel Installation Advice
When offering general advice on fencing, we should at least mention fence installation. The old saying, “A fence is only as secure as its installation” is worth paying attention to. When you’ve chosen the style and height of the panels you want, whilst making sure they are strong, well made and treated properly - hopefully with a 25 year guarantee against rot and insect attack, then be sure to choose strong wooden posts. Quite often this can be where it literally all falls down! If you don’t choose posts that are made from the right type of timber, that are kiln dried and pressure treated, the posts can rot once they are dug in to the ground.
