There is nothing quite like building your own garden furniture, and this is because it gives you great satisfaction that you cannot get when you buy from the store. Creating garden furniture including fences, gates and more can be good fun and a project for you to get your hands on, and because it will generally be wood that you are using it means that it is simple and easy enough to do as well. The garden fence is perhaps the most important aspect to address, and this is much more than just a point where your garden ends and a way to stop the neighbours pets getting in. Your garden fence acts as a frame to the rest of the garden, so it is important that it is bright and attractive, as this will help to boost the overall gardens look, and with a good garden fence it will inspire you to fill your backyard with plenty more such as a social area, a pond, arches, ornaments and flowers amongst other decorations.
Building a garden fence is simple too, and the only tricky bit will be coming up with a design and cutting the wood, but you can find lots of inspiration by looking online. To start you need to establish the perimeter and the height, and you then set the corner posts, and there are special post hole diggers to do this. A builders line then needs to be set so that the rest of the posts can be aligned and made the right height, and this should be followed by laying out the rest of the post holes, which should be evenly spread out. You then set these posts, and for support you should nail 2X4’s from post to post, and this should be a foot from the bottom and at the top, and possibly in the middle if you have a tall fence. The structure will now be set, and you can start work on filling the rest of it in with your own fence design.
Getting the Tools for the Job
To make your design it is important that you have all of the necessary tools and equipment, so you will want to visit a reputable tool supplier, like Anglia Tool Centre, as this way you know you are getting the best. You then attach this to the structure, and you will have the perfect frame for your garden that was built with your own hands.
