Get your Fence Ready to Spend More Time in the Garden

Posted on April 10,2020 by Charlie Stimpson.

With many of us getting ready to spend more time in the garden over the coming months, now is the time to assess your garden fencing and see if there is anything you can do to strengthen and improve it. Smartening your garden fencing will instantly lift the look and feel of your whole garden, and there are some simple things that you can do to improve your fencing before you even need to ask garden fencing contractors for help.


Clear Debris


This is a really simple task which will not only make your fencing look neater, but will also smarten your entire garden. Clear away any debris which may have accumulated over the winter months, such as fallen leaves, moss and litter. Not only will this make your garden look much tidier for the coming months ahead, but it will also protect your fencing against rot and damp.


Clean your Fencing


A job that most of us will put off time and time again, cleaning your fencing is an easy way of making your garden much smarter, ready for you to spend more time in it. Now is the time to clean your fence, especially as the weather becomes milder. If you’re not sure how to clean your fence, follow these simple steps:


  1. Firstly, clean any stubborn grime with a brush, preferably a wire brush. Gently scrub any grime such a mud from the fencing, being particularly gentle if your fence is painted, as you don’t want to damage the paint.
  2. After you’ve scrubbed any stubborn dirt from your fence, rinse it with your garden hose. If you can set it to a medium-high pressure, this will also help to remove some of the caked-on dirt.
  3. If you have one, a pressure washer is a simple way to finish washing your fence. Be careful, however, and use a washer with a psi of no higher than 1500-2000 so as not to damage your fence. If you’re unsure, follow steps one and two and then wait until garden fencing contractors or a jet washing company are able to finish washing your fence for you.


Consider Painting your Fence


If you have the paint or the stain available, spring is a great time to paint your fence. By painting your fence, you’ll protect it against the elements to come, including any hot summer sun the great British summertime may grace us with!

Whilst cleaning and clearing your garden fencing, you can also assess whether your fencing needs to be looked at by specialist garden fencing contractors.
