Fence Panels - For Privacy in Your Garden

by David Ross

Are you looking for an easy way to construct a fence on your property? Do you want it to look like it has been custom built for your property? Congratulations, you can now quickly construct a fence that looks custom built. And best of all this is available to you at a price you can afford by using fence panels. If you want to learn more this article will introduce you to fence panels.

'What exactly is a fence panel?' you may ask. Well, fence panels come in a wide array of sizes and styles. But a fence panel is basically a pre-constructed section of a fence. Rather than getting a bunch of boards and building a simple fence along your property, you can purchase fence panels that are already constructed and erect them. The process is much faster and the final result is usually much better looking. And could even be sturdier since the fence panels are constructed by professional.

So exactly what are you looking at as far as price goes? Well, you could purchase a basic 6x2 fence that is constructed with tight boards for as little as £14.50. This same fence can go the whole way up to £32.00 if you want it to be 6 feet tall. Or perhaps you prefer lattice? A completely see through lattice fence that is still quite sturdy in construction can be purchased for as little as £39.00. This would be for a complete 6x6 section of fence panel. There are many different designs and prices for you to choose from. So all you need to do is shop around for the price and style you are looking for. Keep in mind that the fact that these fence panels have been pre-constructed for you is saving you a lot of money - versus having the builder come to your home to erect a custom fence.

However if you are going to pay £39.00 per fence panel you are going to want to know that it will last. Before purchasing any fence panels make sure that the wood in the panels has been pressure treated with Tanalith E. Pressure treating protects the wood against the elements. This reduces the amount of maintenance you will need to do on a fence and it increases its life span. Make sure that you are purchasing fence panels that are going to last. Imagine how upset you would be if your brand new fence started rotting after just a few years!

If you are looking for a beautiful fence that is not outrageously expensive you should definitely look into fence panels. The come pre-fabricated so you don't have to do a lot of work. Just make sure that they are fully pressure treated before making any purchases.
