5 Project Planning Tips


Project planning can sometimes feel difficult and time consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are 5 planning tips to design and create a fantastic garden for you to enjoy!

Project Planning Tips To Help You Along The Way…

  1. Make Sure You Have All Relevant Planning Permission!
    First things first, you need to make sure that you have all of the relevant planning permission. If you’re upgrading your garden fencing, your might need to apply for planning permission depending on how high the fence is. If a fence is over 1m high and is next to a highway used by vehicles or a footpath of a highway, you need planning permission.
    If you’re unsure if you need planning permission for any works you are considering, visit your local council’s website for more information.
  2. Decide What Type Of Fence You Want!
    After checking and getting any permission needed (if needed) you should decide on what type of fence you want.
    Project planning is all about gathering information. So, when deciding what type of fence you want; make sure you get all the information you can. There are many different types of fence to choose from; do you want eco-fencing, featheredge fencing or some of the numerous fence panels available on our website?
    After deciding what type of fencing you want, you’ll have to decide what type of fence posts you want. Do you want to use concrete posts or wooden posts? Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, if you’re interested in reading more about the advantages of using concrete posts you can read our blog about using concrete posts.
  3. Choose Quality Materials!
    After deciding what type of fence you want, another key component of project planning is making sure that you choose quality materials.
    If you want to create a high quality end product, you need to use quality materials! You can find a wide selection of quality materials at your local Challenge Fencing branch.
  4. Choose A Trustworthy Installation Team!
    On our website we have a great list of recommended installation teams.
    We only refer contractors who are known by us for three years or more, have a good record of reliability and work in a professional and honest manner. For example, if you live in the Cobham area, we recommend Stennett Landscapes.
  5. Consider Local British Wildlife!
    When planning your garden, don’t forget about the local wildlife. By choosing different plants and by leaving a gap at the bottom of your fence panels for hedgehogs, you can create a wildlife friendly garden; this way both you and the local British wildlife can enjoy your beautiful garden!
