Fabulous Fencing for Your Garden

When it comes to our garden, you might not realise how much attention we pay to our fencing, until it’s not there. Here in the UK the weather has been a bit rough this year, so many of us have lost older fence panels to the gales that have been battering our gardens. Now might be the time to tear down old panels, and replace them with captivating new panels, perfectly framing your garden.

Garden Fencing

Here at Weston Sawmill, we stock the firm favourites of feather board and close boarded fencing. These are firm favourites when it comes to framing your garden. There is a reason that you see this style of fencing around many gardens, and that’s due to the tried and tested structure that allows it to withstand the harsh weather for a number of years.
If you live in a particularly windy area, such as on high ground, or near to open waters, we recommend supporting your fencing with concrete posts and even concrete kickboards underneath.

Trellis Fencing

Trellis fencing is a great decorative option to use in your garden. You can use trellis to separate out sections of your garden, giving your garden segments.
Trellis is a great way to help your climbing plants to grow, such as vines, grapes and climbing roses. Using trellis can help to give your garden height.

Picket Fencing

Picket fencing makes a great addition to the front of your home! This classic style fencing can tidy up the front of your home and replace existing fencing or as an alternative to bushes that can become overgrown and look unkempt.
This style of fencing can, like trellis, also be used to split your garden into sections. However, this style of fencing keeps the separation at a lower height to maintain your view across the whole garden.

When it comes to fencing, we recommend that you keep up regular wood treatments to give it the best lifespan possible. This can either be in the form of wood stain or preserve, which will maintain the effect of the wood, with a clear colouring, or paint which can entirely change the look of your fencing.

Secure Your Home With New Gates

Security is important when it comes to protecting your home and family. While your doors and windows will play a significant role here, what about the external aspects of your home? Such as your driveway and garden.

Secure Your Garden

Your garden is your own personal slice of the outside world. A place where you and your family can enjoy the great outdoors, release your personality into the garden and feel safe in the knowledge that no one can interrupt your space.
Replacing your existing garden gates can help to improve the security of your garden. This means that anything in your garden, whether that is you, your family or garden furniture and tools will be significantly protected (providing you ensure that the gate is secured and locked).

Protect Your Drive

Our driveways not only act as the lead up to our homes, they can also be where a number of us store our prized possessions – our cars. Not all of us have garages large enough to lock away our cars when we are at home, so the next best thing is to have a secure gate fitted.
Our range of gates are not only ideal to cap off the end of your drive, but also to secure any entrances to your property or land. Amongst our range of gates includes our field and ranch gates, perfect for if you have a patch of land, some fields, or even just want something different at the bottom of your drive.

Made To Measure

Here at Weston Sawmill, we pride ourselves in offering the very best service for made to measure gates. We believe that no gate truly fits unless it has been made specifically to suit a certain space, whether this is for your garden, your driveway or even a field. We offer made to measure gates for both private and commercial purposes.
Not only do made to measure gates fit better, but they can also look better as you have the option of the style that you have fitted. Our range includes; field, ranch, galvanised and picket gates. We also have a selection of close boarded doors, tongue and groove gates and doors available.

Decking In Time For Summer

As the summer rolls around we want to spend more and more time in our gardens, but have you considered swapping out your old tired decking for some new hard-wearing decking, just in time for the summer sun.

The Joys Of Decking

Many people have previously opted for patios for the seating area in their gardens, but we still prefer a good solid decking where we entertain our guests.
While decking does require regular maintenance in the form of wood treatments, it can be changed to any colour or tone to suit you. Meaning that if you change your garden, or just your garden furniture, your decking can be stained or painted to match.

Replace Old For New

Over time mother nature can take its toll on existing decking. Missed wood treatments can mean that your decking will age before its time, and can leave you with decking that is unsafe and fit for purpose. So, why not get it replaced in time for the nicer weather.
If you are replacing old for new, you will already have much of the groundwork ready for your new decking to be put in place, leaving you in a ready to go position!

New Decking New Space

If you are creating an entirely new space with your decking, you have all the wonders of choosing your size, your height from the ground, and even the shape of your new decking! But don’t forget you also have the hard part of the groundwork too.

All of our decking is pressure treated which improves its durability and makes sure you get the best value for money. Our sizes range from 3 metres to 4.8 metres, and we are more than happy to advise you on the best size of decking for your specific project.
