How to Create

A Low Maintanance Garden

All Jacksons Timber Products are maintenance free and guaranteed for 25 years and do not require any additional applications of treatment.

A low maintenance garden that looks good all year round with minimal upkeep isn't as hard as you think. Taking everything up and adding fake grass or gravel is not the answer. You can still have a low maintenance garden that looks good. 

Our low maintenance timber fencing is handcrafted, made with specially selected species of  timber which is then Jakcure pressure treated to last a minimum of 25 years. Is it this process which ensures the fencing will have protection against rot, insect attack and decay. Once the fence is installed, you can leave it with minimal maintenance for 25 years. 

All of our products from our fence panels to timber sleepers will weather naturally changing in appearance over time going a silvery colour.


Opt for good quality fencing to ensure it stands the test of time. All Jacksons products carry a unique 25 year guarantee, so after the products have been installed they should be maintenance-free for many years without the hassle of retreating every year.

Plant in containers

Use Flower Beds

Planting into flower beds or contained borders reduce the amount of space your plants can grow. Raised beds are also ideal for maintaining, being raised they are at a better height to weed and tend to plants.

Timber Sleepers

Swap Hedges for Fences

Hedges tend to be hard to maintain. They need regular trimming, especially if they're at the front of the property.  Replacing hedging initially will require some lay out but replaced with a Jacksons fence that comes with a 25 year guarantee, it will require no maintenance and will stand the test of time.

Fence Panels

Outdoor Rooms

Bring the inside out by creating a beautiful outdoor room for all to enjoy. An outdoor room usually consists of a paved area just off the house, opting for hard landscaping like paving not only looks beautiful, but it’s easy to maintain. See how one of our customers created an outdoor room using Canterbury Combi fencing here.

If you still like the idea of greenery or plant life in the garden then low maintenance plants are the way forward. Low maintenance plants can include Conifers, shrubs and ornamental grasses that can make any garden look great.

Lose the Lawn

Install Decking

Lose the lawn and cover it with decking. No need to constantly mow during summer month, just small amounts of maintenance to remove moss in winter months.
