    With regards to any DIY project, in your home or garden, it is very important that you carefully plan the project beforehand.

    This includes things such as measuring how many materials you need to buy in order to reduce wastage. This could also help you to keep the overall cost of the fencing project lower.

  • Check For Underground Cables And Pipes
    In addition to making sure that you only purchase the necessary materials and reduce the risk of purchasing too much timber. It is also important that you carefully check the area you wish to build the fence for underground cables and pipes. This can be done by using a detector.

  • Make Sure You Get Planning Permission (If Required)
    Generally you are allowed to build a fence of up to 2 metres in height without planning permission however, it is advisable that you check with your local planning office if you are unsure about any restrictions in your local area.

  • Use High Quality Screws And Fixing
    Using high quality timber is very important; however it is also important that you use high quality screws and fixings when installing your garden fence.
