Following are the few types of fence panels that can be used for your fencing project in Nottingham. Find out more:

1. Waney Edge Fence Panels

Waney Edge Fence Panels are also referred to as overlap panels, a prefect choice for budget fencing they are made of renewable timber by expert fence fitters. The panels are almost zero-maintenance ones and can last up to 15 years. If this type of panels suits your requirements, you can even get them stained as per your specifications.

2. Feather Edge Panels

With added strength and durability these panels are perfect for your garden-cum-playground area, where you could play ball games frequently. These panels are perfect for long-lasting fences for your garden, front yard or back yard.

For a better look and strength, you can get the panels with double sides. This will not only give you more security but will add more of a beautiful look to your garden. The timber can be treated for increased durability.

3. Trellis Panels

Trellis garden fencing panels are usually made from an open framework of intersecting pieces of wood, bamboo or metal, and serve as an effective and quick way to decorate a garden. Trellis Panels come in different variety of timber species, styles and sizes. They can be painted, stain finished or left in their natural shape.

Trellis panels are an attractive and versatile method to add and define new dimensions to existing outdoor spaces and gardens. They can be used for privacy in areas like an open-air swimming pool and screen the unsightly views. They are widely preferred over ordinary solid panels due to aesthetic reasons.

4. Picket Fencing

Picket fencing is widely used and is ideal for defining boundaries of a property or for keeping pets. Picket fencing is distinguished by evenly spaced vertical units attached to each other with rails. Due to its lower height, it doesn’t block view of the surroundings.

Apart from timber, PVC is getting increased popularity for picket fencing. PVC is widely available in white colour and doesn’t need any paint job and have virtually lifetime warranty. Apart from using it as a boundary marker, Picket Fencing is widely used for decorative purposes as well.

5. Hit and Miss

These garden fences are so called because the boards or pales are fixed alternatively on the back and front of the panel in turn. They overlap and create that unique hit and miss pattern. Both sides look the same so your neighbour also gets a good- looking view.

Hit and miss panels can be used with slotted jakposts. They also allow wind to pass through. Where possible, consider getting timber that is planed all- round for a better looking finish.

6. Closeboard Fencing

Closeboard Fencing provides excellent security and durability at a very affordable price. Closeboard Fencing panels are made using vertical feather-edge boards aligned vertically and fixed on supporting wooden rails. Fence can be erected to follow the ground contour, hence is most suited for the gardens with non-uniform ground contours.

To protect against rot, the timber can be dip treated and fitted with a cap at the top.

7. Fancy Panels

Fancy panels stand out from the rest of the crowd. They include any type of fencing that is altered according to your specifications. Fancy panels can also be made more environmentally sustainable using continental products. This means you only buy fancy panels from sustainable and well- managed resources regulated through forestry control.

8. Bespoke Fencing

These include beautiful solid garden fencing panels are hand- made to bespoke sizes. They are available in different attractive timber species or finishing in a variety of colours either with stain or with paint. You can use bespoke fencing as is or add decorative trellis tops for a solid looking frame. The advantage with this kind of garden fencing is that you do not need to seen run off finish with odd- sized panels.
