Our Guide To Choosing The Right Garden Fence Panel

Fencing normally takes a battering in the autumn and winter, but Nathan James Dodd explains that if you need replacement panels or are thinking of erecting a fence for the first time, there's a wide choice including featheredge, overlap, domed or trellis.

Garden Fencing Panels

Panels and screens from Grange Fencing or Forest Fencing can be installed fairly easily, with posts, stakes and supports, and used for many purposes, not only as a boundary marker but as an attractive backdrop, shelter and pest control.

Traditional Fencing

Even basic fencing such as the Grange Lap Fence Panel has an attractive rustic appearance while their Professional Lap Fence Panels are pressure treated and may be natural or golden brown. As with Forest pressure treated Superlap Panels, they are available in 6ft lengths and various heights.

Featheredge panels perhaps have a more traditional look and both Forest and Grange manufacture 6ft long pressure treated panels in this style that are robustly designed to last many years.

Contemporary Panels

Grange Contemporary panels have been described as new, innovative and elegant, and alongside their Louvre panels and Forest's Kyoto panels, represent an attempt get away from fencing's staid image.This is also true of the Europa Plain Screen Fence whose weave effect is far from plain. 

Dome top fences such as the Elite St. Carne and St. Lunairs styles present another handsome alternative, made especially attractive when different patterns are weaved as in Forest's Strasburg chevron design.

Trellis Fences

Trellis topped fences add a further dimension, both decorative and practical on which climbers can be trained. Elite's Eyecatcher fence is particularly eyecatching due to the lattice work alternating with a domed top.

Another interesting option would be Esprit Timber and Metal panels from Grange, a contemporary design with metal spiked railings instead of wooden trellis. 

Don't forget that trellis can also be purchased separately in various shapes, such as square, concave, convex or a modern style like Grange's Badminton and fixed to the top of an existing fence. Larger 6ft trellises can act as screens on the own.
