When considering the installation of your new garden fence, it is imperative that you consider making a few key and important checks. Learning about the following four simple signs to look out for can save you money and some intense heartache in both the long and short term.
The first vital check which should be performed before you install your new Garden Fence is a quick scan around the base of the area in which you plan on ‘planting’ your new fence posts. This step is going to vary slightly, depending on whether or not you are installing concrete posts, wooden posts, or modern metal varieties.
For those installing concrete garden fence posts, you need to check that there are no large rocks or other materials which could potentially disrupt the process of post-installation. If you find any large rocks, it is best to remove them before continuing with your project.
Next, take a quick look at the height and width of the garden fence posts which you have chosen. It is important that all posts are of a consistent height and width, as this will ensure the stability and longevity of your new garden fence.
If you plan on painting or staining your garden fence, now is also the time to do a patch test in an inconspicuous area on each post. This will allow you to determine whether or not the paint or staining process will yield the desired results that you are seeking.
Finally, it is important to take into account the amount of sunlight to which each garden fence post will be exposed to. This factor will play a role in the eventual fading or discoloration of your new garden fence.
By following these simple and easy steps, you can rest assured that your new garden fence will be installed correctly and without any issues. These checks may seem small and insignificant, but they can truly make all the difference in the overall look and feel of your finished project!
