Summer is a very popular time for renovations throughout your home, particularly in garden spaces! Whether you own a massive, multi-acre garden or a small lot squeezed next to your neighbours’, gardening is one of the most enjoyable pastimes for people all over the country.
Your garden fence panels is a hugely important part of your garden, and it is important that they are kept as strong as possible and that they work to complement the hard work you put into your exterior space, as well as your home in general.
With space often scarce, it’s no surprise that us Brits are so concerned with personal space and the idea that our homes are our own castles. Our garden’s boundaries are often the driving force behind our entire designs and landscaping schemes. We are focused on making the most out of our available space and creating a truly unique area that we can enjoy being in.
With our boundaries being such an important component of our home, why wouldn’t we want to make the most out of our garden fencing?
One of the most important features of a garden fence is its ability to keep your outdoor space safe and closed off to potential intruders. A weak, ill-fitting garden fence – particularly one which has been in place for a long period of time – can offer little in the way of protection from intruders and could even be a potential security risk. That is just one of the many reasons why you need to ensure that your garden isn’t a security weak point for your home.
Saying that, many people now allow certain types of garden intruders into their exterior space. Animals like hedgehogs have all suffered in recent years as many fences are in place to deny them the ability to move.
More and more homeowners are grouping together to create “Hedgehog Highways” which allows them to freely move around and forage for food. Entire communities are working together to offer small holes in their garden fencing to allow these creatures to pass through comfortably.
Most commonly, people choose to refurbish their garden fences as part of an overall garden redesign. If you’re choosing this year to renovate your entire garden space, you should always start with your fencing. By defining your borders, you can create your overall design to build out from them and install perfectly-positioned garden features comfortably.
There are a diverse range of fence panels available, including hurdles, overlapping panels, designer models and even palisade panels, which are ideal for front garden spaces, but are rarely suitable for rear gardens. You can even create fantastic design by including wooden fence posts into your fencing, which can really help to break up the repeated patterns of any fencing.
Here at Challenge Fencing, we specialise in providing high-quality, attractive fencing for all kinds of garden and home designs. Along with traditional panels, we are also able to offer coloured, unique designs to really make your garden into a personal, comfortable space.
