Garden fencing can serve many purposes, but one of the best is to accent and define areas of your garden. Whether you choose a three foot or six foot high fencing option on your boundary or stand a section of post and rail garden fencing in the centre of a sweep of lawn, garden fencing can add a beautiful accent to your landscaping. Take a look at some novel, unusual ways to use garden fencing to make your gardens a showplace that will be the envy of the neighbourhood.
We take pride in our fencing and take particular care to ensure the finished fence is level and neat. We can use all types of materials including wooden and concrete fence posts and concrete base panels where necessary. We find that the manufactured made, pressure treated fence panels are strong and long lasting and give a very attractive finished look.
Decorative fence panels are more expensive compared to standard fence panels, however they can provide a more pleasing finish and are often more acceptable in cases where you have to take into account your neighbours views and opinions.
Define your fencing needs. If you want privacy or animal proofing, you have to opt for one of the solid styles. But, if it is just a boundary-marker that is needed, there are many attractive fences that look stylish and won't appear oppressive in a small garden.
Garden fences have the great merit of being more instant than hedges and less expensive than walls. That is the reason they are so often chosen by builders for new properties, and why they are frequently chosen again when the original fences come to the end of their useful life. Close board and panel fences are popular, but predictable. There are plenty of styles to choose from, however, so select a fence appropriate to your garden design, yet practical for the purposes you have in mind. Install picket fences for a romantic country garden look. Picket fences look good in country gardens, but can also be a smart choice for a small town garden. Trellis fencing is a good choice when you need some kind of boundary but you don’t want to totally block the view.

Landscaper Bangor provides a full range of lawn care services including the supply and laying of new turf. The first thing to take into account when laying a turf lawn is that although turf can be laid at pretty much any time of the year, it is best to try and lay it in the spring or autumn months. This is the optimum time to allow the turf to bed in without it having to compete with harsh frosts and also heavy snow falls in winter months.
Although there are a variety of turfs to choose from it is recommended by garden experts that you use meadow turf, as this is best to act as a hard wearing lawn.
Ground Clearance & Preparation
In order to prepare the ground for the turf to be laid it is important to make sure the ground is clear of anything that might prevent the turf from bedding in properly. It is imperative that the ground is cleared of all existing plant growth i.e. weeds, any tree stumps or roots, old bushes etc, and also any rubble or masonry. If you have an existing lawn that is beyond repair we will remove it in its entirety - we don’t try and lay a turf lawn over an existing grass lawn as this will lead to no end of difficulties in the future.
We also make sure that all perennial weeds have been destroyed and chances of them returning minimised as much as possible. Weeds such as dandelions which have so called 'tap roots' (roots that go deep underground), stinging nettles, dock leaves etc are all rapid growers so ensuring that both they and their roots are removed is a major step in ensuring your turf lawn is protected and allowed to flourish once laid.
Before we lay the new turf the area will be levelled and extra screened top soil added if necessary. At this stage we can add sharp grit sand to aid drainage if required.
Laying The Turf
Our turf is supplied in rolls approximately 30 cm wide and it is laid on the levelled ground and tapped down to release any air pockets. Once laid we can cut out and shape borders if desired and finally a good watering in is done. We also provide our customers with after care advice with watering, cutting and feeding.
We supply and install a large range of garden enhancement features like pergolas, gazebos, summer houses, log stores and garden sheds.
Whatever you need the space for, wether it be somewhere to relax and entertain in or somewhere to keep the mower we’re bound to have exactly what you are looking for. We have various brochures containing all sorts of garden buildings and features to choose from. We prepare the ground, supply the base and supply and install all types of garden outbuildings, gazebos and pergola systems.
Other garden features we supply and install are garden trellis and screening, rose and trellis arches and picket style fencing.
