Top Tips for Protecting Your Timber Wood Fence

If you’re the proud owner of a timber wood fence, you’ll want it to be in the best condition this summer. It’s important to know the best way to maintain it. The UK weather can be unpredictable at best so it’s important to take a few steps to protect your timber.

Keep on Top of Any Damage

It can be tempting to overlook a tiny bit of rot or splitting fence panels but you’re always better to face the problem head on. If your panel is past the point of no return, it’s easy to replace them. With just one part damaged, there’s no need to replace the fence in its entirety, saving a penny or two in the long run. Take a look at eDecks’ wide range of fence panels with something to suit every taste.

Seal and Reseal Your Timber Wood

To protect your timber panels from the elements, it’s worthwhile investing in a good sealant. Why not try Ronseal One Coat Fence Life? It protects and colours your fence, saving it from the challenging British weather. You may also want to consider re-sealing the timber once a year to keep your fence in tiptop condition. If you’re short on time, invest in a Ronseal Fence Sprayer which can paint a panel in just 4 minutes!

Spring Cleaning

If your fence is looking a tad worse for wear, it may just need a quick clean. A pressure washer can work wonders for your outdoor timber. It’s a great investment, getting the job done in half the time.  A quick clean every 6 months or so will have your fence looking good as new.

Good Quality Posts Keep You Upright!

Your fence posts are the foundations that hold your fence together so it’s important to make sure they’re well fitted, sturdy and high quality. With eDecks’ discounted prices, it’s easier than ever to get your hands on good quality, affordable timber fencing. Treated timber fence posts are available from just £10.79.

So don’t sit on the fence when it comes to protecting your timber. Invest in some prevention and repair this summer. Over at eDecks, you’ll find all the timber wood supplies you need to help.

5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Garden Deck This Summer

With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of your outdoor oasis. Step away from the TV box sets and embrace the surprisingly glorious British summertime. There’s nothing better in summer than enjoying some quality time on your garden deck. Read on to discover five tips for getting the most out of your garden deck over the next few months.

Host a Summer Drinks Party

Admittedly, there’s a lack of opportunity to socialise outside in the UK. So when opportunity does come knocking, you have to take full advantage. Invite your family and friends to admire your garden and soak up the sunshine whilst cracking open a bottle of wine. Decking lights are a great way to ensure you can party until dusk, whilst showcasing your garden in the best light!

Unleash Your Green Fingers

You may not be the next Alan Titchmarsh but gardening can be a great activity for all the family. Summer is a great time to dig out those gardening gloves and have a go. Why not plant some blooms on and around your deck to add a splash of colour? The Rosa Planter would add a lovely touch to your decking this summer.

Get the Family Together for a BBQ

Summer is the perfect excuse to get the family together for a good old fashioned BBQ. After all, nothing beats the taste of burgers and sausages cooked outside! Some garden furniture is a great investment for your decking, lasting for years of family fun! The Ledbury 9 Piece Rattan Cube set looks great on a garden deck and is perfect for all the family.

Catch Some Rays on Your Garden Deck

Your garden deck is the perfect place to relax and work on your summer tan. Grab your sunglasses, a good book and an ice cream and enjoy the tranquillity of your own back garden. If the heat gets too much a parasol is a great option for enjoying the fresh air whilst keeping cool. The Genoa Cantilever Parasol looks great and is produced using weather resistant materials so you can leave it out all year.

Some Evening Stargazing

We’ve all seen these romantic scenarios on TV where people spend the evening cuddling under the stars. Who’s to say you can’t do it too? Your decking makes the perfect setting for a spot of evening stargazing from the comfort of your own garden. Switch on the decking lights, bring out your favourite cosy blankets, light some candles and play your favourite tunes -the perfect evening spent with friends or that special someone!
