Security fencing is normal very tall; this makes it hard to climb and also blocks the view of any intruder looking for valuables. By law in the UK fence panels have to be less than 6’ unless you have permission from your local planning office. 6’ is sufficiently tall enough to provide great security and many fence panels are available in this height.

Fence panels come in many different sizes and styles, choosing the right panel can dramatically change the way your garden looks. This is important if you want to create the illusion of more space or if you want to even out the dimensions of your garden. If you have a long, narrow garden you may want to make it look wider.

Being able to see out is important for creating the illusion of a wider garden. Allowing light to flow through the fence panels also helps brighten a garden which may not receive the most light.

Trellis fence panels are a complete lattice design so they do not block any of the of the sunshine. The lattice design also makes this fence panel perfect for climbing plants. Plants can grow between the lattices to create a living fence panel.

Picket fencing also has a very traditional, country feel which is blends well with most styles of housing.
