Supplying the wooden fence panels Scunthorpe needs

Even at times of peak demand, we work hard with local companies to supply the wooden fence panels Scunthorpe households need without any unnecessary delays.

Yesterday, we reported an article from The Times that said wooden fence panels are at a premium nationwide, and are changing hands for as much as £80 each on the black market.

We suggested using concrete gravel boards for the full height of your fence, both as a way of getting it reconstructed during the short supply of wooden fence panels, and to make it extra secure.

But if you are committed to a wooden fence - perhaps because you only need to replace a few panels, or simply because you prefer the look of wood - there's no need to worry.

Local firms are working hard to manufacture or buy in all of the wooden fence panels Scunthorpe gardens need to get back to their best, with the minimum of waiting time for an order to be fulfilled.

If you are having difficulty finding a supplier with existing stocks, speak to us and we may be able to recommend someone in the Scunthorpe area.

We can also refer you to a Scunthorpe fencing contractor who can put up your wooden fence panels using our concrete fence posts and gravel boards - a more weather-resistant alternative to wooden fence posts.

The Times were right about one thing though - wooden fence panels are definitely in demand right now, so the sooner you make your enquiry, the faster you can expect to get your hands on the right number of fence posts, gravel boards, fence panels and trellis sections to have your fence back to its best.

Improving fence security with concrete gravel boards

The Times reported today on a crime spree sweeping the UK - the black market for wooden fence panels, which have been in short supply since the bad weather and strong winds of this past winter.

Stolen fence panels are apparently changing hands for as much as £80 each as households struggle to find enough to replace fences felled by the winter weather.

"Many DIY chains and hardware stores have run out of traditional lap fencing and are seeing demand increase by up to five times the normal level.

"Industry experts say that prices have rocketed to record levels as a result of severe winter weather and a house building boom."

The newspaper goes on to say that the current situation may be even worse than that seen in 2007, when similarly bad weather led to a surge in demand for fence panels.

While the temptation to buy fence panels offered on the black market may be strong, it's worth remembering that doing so would not only be illegal, but at £80 a panel would be very expensive.

A more economical and security-conscious alternative could be to rebuild your fence entirely out of concrete gravel boards.

These are certainly cheaper than the prices being paid for some wooden fence panels, if the reports are to be believed.

Concrete gravel boards are also stronger, making your fence more resistant to strong winds in the future.

And if you have ever tried to lift one single-handedly, you'll know that it's unlikely any opportunistic thieves are likely to make off with your fence in the dead of night.

Reliable and robust, strong and secure, concrete gravel boards make a great alternative to wooden fence panels if you are having trouble sourcing a sufficient supply.

But like fence panels, demand is high at present - so if you need a large quantity of concrete gravel boards, make sure you get your order in as soon as possible to avoid any unwelcome delays.

Circular corner patio with Rotunda curved slabs

We're really pleased with this pretty patio, laid using Rotunda rotary paving slabs to create a seating area in the corner of a customer's garden.

It's a great example of how an unused corner of your garden can be transformed with even a small number of paving slabs, giving you a patio area for planters and tubs, or to sit out on a sunny day.

In this case, a quarter circle of Rotunda rotary paving slabs was used to create a curved patio in the corner of the garden - but the customer wanted a little extra space.

Look closely and you can see that a row of rectangular paving slabs was placed along each edge, bringing the circle away from the fence slightly and increasing the total patio area.

We have rectangular slabs to match each ring of the Rotunda circle, so you have total control over how you incorporate it into a larger patio.

It's great to see Rotunda circular paving used in this way, proving its versatility as something more than just a circle in the middle of a lawned area.

If you have your own ideas about what you'd like to do in your garden, give us a call to see if we have the right patio slabs for what you need.
