How do I maintain my new fence?

The best way to maintain your new fence is to treat the wood every year. Treatment comes in most colours now and really does prolong the life of your fencing. In hard to reach places, a coat around the bottom of the post where it touches the ground will help as 95% of all posts we replace are rotten at this level where water can sit next to the wood.

Climbing plants such as ivy can also pull the fencing apart so idealy should be cut away as soon as you notice them growing through.
