Top tips for installing a panel fence

If you are looking to transform your garden this summer, then installing a panel fence can be a fantastic option to give you a stylish, secure and private sanctuary at your home. A fence is very easy to maintain and choosing the right materials can help to ensure it is able to last for years.

When installing a fence, the first thing you should do is to check the planning permission and title deeds of your property to ensure you are able to build one, and whether the boundary line belongs to you. Once you have confirmed that, you can choose the style of fence you want. Here at Timber Focus, we have a wide range of styles to choose from, so if you are not sure check them out.

To help you with installing your fence, here’s some of our top tips:

1. Choose your post positions
Many DIY fence builders make the mistake of not spacing out their posts correctly and end up with too few. A general rule is to make sure that no posts are more than 8 feet apart, otherwise they become very vulnerable to wind.
2) Plan it correctly
Ensure you have enough panels and posts by clearly marking out the area you want to install the fence in, ensuring the string is taught and you have triple-checked the measurements.
3) Dig deep!
One of the best tips is to dig deep down for your posts, as this helps to boost their strength and ensure they are sturdy enough to withstand the strongest winds.
4) Use the best materials

When it comes to ensuring your fence is as beautiful as possible, make sure that you are using the very best wood possible. At Timber Focus, we only use the highest quality timber which has been specifically designed to be quick and easy to install. Our fencing range comes in a wide range of styles and material, including Siberian Larch, Canadian Western Red Cedar and Featheredge.
