Garden fences London

garden fences londonGarden fences are essential to give us privacy and allow us to feel a little more at ease that our property is safe. There are different types of materials available for various styles of fencing. 

To keep people out of your property you will need a fence that is higher than 6 ft. This way no one can easily climb over into your garden or see through. Vertical spikey tops and barbed wire can be used across the top as well. It is not the most attractive but will definitely keep intruders out. 

Iron and aluminium fences offer high security and can be very decorative. Generally these materials don’t need maintaining and can last up to 20 years. 

More attractive designs can be quite small and include latticework or ornamental detail. These are less obtrusive and creates character around the house.  

Wire fences like a durable chain link are more open and used as safety fences to keep dogs/pets in or enclose specific areas. 

Wooden fences are the most common and rather easy to install. They need treating with a stain or wood preservative to protect from natural occurrences. You can expect to maintain a fence like this every 3 to 5 years. 

If the fence you want to install is higher than 2 metres, or higher than 1 metre and next to a highway used by vehicles, you will need planning permission.   

You will also need planning permission to put up a fence if your house is a listed building or forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building. You don’t need planning permission to take down, improve or maintain a fence as long as you do not increase its height.
