Best Fence Panels for Windy Gardens
Do you live in a particularly windy area? Perhaps you live by the coast and have a strong sea breeze or your garden acts like a wind tunnel.
If your garden suffers from the elements more than most, choosing the correct style fencing could save you money in the long run.
We'll jump straight in.
Traditional Lap/ Waney Lap Fence Panels
Lap panels are a good, cheap fix. Most people who purchase lap fence panels are looking to repair an existing fence rather than renewing the entire fence. Whilst the cost saving on lap panels is great, this style of fence panel is let down by its strength and longevity.
The most common type of fence panel to break, or be blown out of concrete fence posts in strong winds is a traditional lap fence panel.
Picket Fence Panels
Picket fence panels are strong and durable, often pressure treated too. This type of fence panel by design allows wind to pass through, reducing the potential damage to your fence.
The down side to this of course, the wind passes though to your garden and could potentially cause chaos with garden furniture or more delicate plants.
Decorative Fence Panels
Decorative fence panels are a brilliant way to create privacy in your outdoor space. With many designs available, decorative fencing looks great sectioning off a patio, decked area or even a hot tub.
This style of fence panel will afford you some protection from wind, however the delicate design of decorative fence panels means that damage might occur.
Closeboard Fence Panels
Our recommendation for a strong fence panel would be closeboard fence panels. We offer an ultra heavy duty version of this panel, which are the strongest fence panels we have ever made.
Pressure treated, heavy duty and weather capped, our closeboard fence panels are the perfect choice for the windiest of gardens.
