With the clocks now turned back, it’s officially winter. Whether this fills you with joy, or dread that Christmas is just around the corner, you should take time to prepare your garden, turf and fencing for the harsh weather and damp conditions.
Here are some tips from the team at Allscapes & Fencing to help you prepare your garden and fencing for the times ahead.
Clean the grime off your fencing:
Always clean the mildew and built-up mould. If you don’t this can cause the worst affected areas on your fencing panels to quickly rot through. Using a pressure washer, you can quickly remove built-up bacteria, dirt, and mould that is damaging your fencing. After the fence is clean, apply a coat of stain or protective seal to keep it looking great.
Check your Fencing posts:
When you’re looking at the condition of your fencing, pay special attention to your posts. Make sure they are sturdy and secure. If a post appears loose, it may be worth digging it out around it and putting additional post mix around it. If you feel the post itself is beyond repair it may be worth putting in a concrete spur to bolster the fence.
Protect from leaves and snow:
As the leaves and snow starts to gather around your fence, rake them away from the fencing. Leaves bring with them a lot of moisture when it rains and this can cause your fence to rot very quickly.
