Whether you are installing garden fence panels to provide safety and security for your property or you are looking at making your garden so much nicer to look at, you need to take your time in choosing your fencing supplies company to provide you with the best fence panels at the right prices that do exactly the job you require them for.
If you’ve given up on the idea of talking over a short 1 m fence with your neighbours, then garden fence panels that are 2 m high will give you a high degree of privacy for your garden.
Installing new garden fence panels
Once you have investigated which garden fence panels will withstand the local wind speed and match your exacting requirements, you need to gather together all of the necessary tools and equipment needed to complete your task. There’s nothing worse than starting the installation of your fence posts and garden fence panels and find you have to go back to your fencing supplies company for parts or tools that you forgot to get ready.
Once you have decided amongst the many different types of garden fence panels that are available, you need to prepare the area where you’re going to do the work, which includes preparing the positioning of the fence posts which will hold and support your garden fence panels for many years.
Some people still prefer to dig a hole and fill it with quick setting concrete, into which they place the fence posts, but this does require you to ensure the fence posts finish up exactly in the right place and at the right angle, if you are to successfully place the garden fence panels in between them.
Other people prefer to use metal fence post holders which are sometimes easier to hammer into your ground if it is soft enough, but not too soft, so the fence post holder isn’t secure.
If you have put the hard-working in planning the positioning for the fence posts, then your choice of garden fence panels from your favourite fencing supplies company will easily fit into place.
Although you can carry out these tasks alone, it is always sensible to have at least two people available because the garden fence panels can be extremely cumbersome and difficult to hold in one hand as you are trying to hammer a nail in using the other hand. It’s always handy to have somebody else available so that should there be an accident, they will be able to contact the emergency services, and hopefully everything will go well and your assistant will be able to make the tea when you need a break.
For security purposes, you will always want to complete installation of your garden fence panels in one day, but this may not be a realistic or possible achievement. It is better to take two or more days and do the job right than to have to come back and remove a garden fence panel or fence posts and redo some of your previous work to get it right, second time around.
An extra, great, tip
People consistently worry about getting the height of the fence posts and the fence panels exactly in line. This anxiety can easily be overcome by placing a string at the correct height at both ends of the space where you’re going to fit your garden fence panels and your fence posts. In fact, if you are going to have your fence posts slightly higher than your fence panels, then the fitting of your fence posts will provide you with a perfect location to place the string at both ends of your garden.
Taking your time to purchase the best garden fence panels to match your security and garden view requirements will set you off on the right footing to complete your task.
