There are a range of options available for every style of garden and budget, from ready-made panels to rustic weaves.
Eco friendly fences - Reclaimed wood is an eco friendly choice that is often a cheaper alternative to buying new materials. Roofing batons, railway sleepers and scaffolding planks from your local salvage yard can all be reused to create a tailor-made fence for your garden. If you can't get the look you need with reclaimed materials, check that your wood is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council to ensure it comes from a sustainable source.
Country Style Willow - f you have the space and like-minded neighbors, living willow or black poplar can be manipulated into a natural screen that is perfectly suited to a country style garden. If you're feeling handy, you can buy a bundle of living willow from around £12 for a bundle of 500 rods but only between December and March.
Ready Made Soft wood panels - Easy-to-install and a quick way to smarten up your garden, softwood panels can be bought cheaply and come in a range of finishes. For a more contemporary look, choose a light wood, such as oak or birch, and finish with some modern planters
