Winter Fence in Shropshire

Winter Proofing Your Fencing in Shropshire

Fencing in the winter months can produce many challenges. Up and down the country, fencing Shropshire and Staffordshire is covered in frost or sometimes even snow. 

Whilst we have been blessed with uncharacteristically good weather for this time of year, the cold months still present many different challenges, especially when it comes to how best to reserve and protect your fencing. 

At Weston Sawmill, we care about all of your fencing needs. So let’s take a look at some of the most helpful tips and tricks to winter proof your fencing in Staffordshire and Shropshire this winter. 


On average, the UK in January sees almost 18 days a month worth of rainfall whilst February and March are almost, if not just as, damp. In Staffordshire, the average temperature for January through to March is only 5 degrees celsius. There is also upwards of a 20% increased chance of snowfall during the aforementioned months. 

From this you might understand that it is of paramount importance to ensure your fence is protected against wet weather. 

One of the most effective ways to do this is to apply a silicone or acrylic sealant to your fence. Not only does this protective sealant act as a barrier protecting your fence from water and cold weather, it also protects against UV Rays and other extreme weather conditions too. 


As previously touched upon, the colder winter months in the UK can see snow. As any UK citizen would tell you when the snow starts to fall, it can be quite problematic. 

Whilst you might be worried about getting sufficient shopping in, you might want to consider when potential damage the snow might cause to your fence. 

Snow will eventually melt and when it does this, it will leave your fence incredibly cold and damp. If left untreated, this can lead to your fence leaning, this where the previously mentioned treatment comes in. 

Perform Necessary Checks

It is essential to perform checks when the weather is still good to ensure your fence is in the best condition possible to tackle harsh weather that might come it’s way. These checks can include: 

  • Checking the posts to ensure they are sturdy 
  • Removing any debris or any loose hanging branches
  • A general physical wellbeing check

These are just some of the necessary checks you can perform to ensure your fence will be in the best shape possible this winter.

Revamping Small Spaces Outdoors with Weston Sawmill

Here at Weston Sawmill, we know all about transforming gardens and other outdoor spaces, so if you are struggling for inspiration we have got you covered.

For this blog, we will share some tips from our team of experts to help you create the garden of your dreams.

Creating Boundaries with Quality Fencing

High-quality fencing provides the ‘walls’ to our gardens, but they can also have multiple functions. While the ultimate goal is to define the space, they also help screen out noise, frame views and provide a surface over which plants can clamber.

Create a Plan

Gardens can fulfil a number of functions and working out the main purpose of your garden will ensure a successful design. For example, do you want to grow your own veg or do you want a lazy space that is surrounded by scented flowers? Honing your wish list is the key to adapting the space to match your lifestyle.

Look to the past for inspiration

Space can be at a premium in smaller gardens so it is best to treat your garden as another room in your house. No matter the size, a small pocket of land can be transformed into an outdoor paradise. Greening up your garden area offers a balm to the senses, a private place to sit, play, garden and enjoy the sunshine plus you can help mitigate pollution and reduce climate change.

Be flexible with your ideas

If you spot a garden idea at a show and wanted to replicate it in your outdoor space, always be flexible with your design concept. A lot will depend on your willingness to take the plunge and if you are able to source the correct materials. When looking at different types of fencing and decking, Weston Sawmill will be able to help.

For a full-scale revamp, it could be worth planning in stages over a number of seasons.

Trellis Fencing

Create Garden Zones with Trellis Fencing

Trellis Fencing is an easy way to create zones within your garden. You can turn an ordinary plot into a series of defined areas with a little creative thinking. Here at Weston Sawmills, we have a varied selection of trellis fencing so that you can create a garden perfect for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the summer.
The great feature of trellis fencing is that it can perform several functions. It is decorative, and can create an elegant screen. Being able to see through the patterned panels draws your eye to the garden and view beyond. This enables a more sympathetic division without the obstruction of a solid boundary.
Long and narrow gardens can benefit from having this kind of dividing screen. Stopping the outdoor space from looking like a runway with nothing between the house and the end of the garden. This is a landscaping technique used by many garden designers.
We have many options for fencing in Staffordshire, and the team at Weston Sawmills will be happy to advise you on the style and type of wooden fencing to achieve your vision.

Climbing Plants Love Trellis Fencing

Trellis fencing, like all hard landscaping can be softened by your choice of planting. Climbing plants love trellis. They can add a layer of texture and colour to the geometric pattern of the fencing construction. Popular climbers include roses, wisteria, honeysuckle, ivy, and clematis. Important factors to consider are the aspect; is your trellis positioned in a sunny or shaded area? Some climbing plants are self clinging while others need to be tied for support. Useful advice for climbers is available from the RHS.

Trellis Fencing from Weston Sawmills

Weston Sawmills has many types of panel fencing which you can choose from. The diagonal shapes of the Jagram English trellis make a stylish choice. The Jagram Elegance trellis is a tighter cross hatch of horizontal and vertical slats. This is perfect for more privacy. Both are available in flat, convex, or concave tops.

Fencing Shropshire

Choosing Your Fencing

The first thing to consider is planning permission, as some areas have limits on the height of fencing allowed, so be sure to check with your local council first. Once that’s sorted you can concentrate on picking the style you want. Closeboard fencing is one of the most popular choices for being strong and versatile supported by horizontal rails between either timber or concrete posts. It’s also difficult for intruders to climb, so acts as a handy deterrent.

Another popular choice is the stylish picket fencing, which is made from pressure treated timber and looks fantastic in traditional cottage gardens. It doesn’t add as much privacy or security as closeboard fencing but it’s brilliant to create borders around trees or flowers. We also supply lattice and trellis fencing which can be attached to the top of your existing fencing or by itself.
