The winter weather can become an issue not only to your home but also your garden, with harsh winds and ice forecast, making sure your property is ready is a great start.

When it comes to your garden it is important to check the fencing is strong, durable and secure for your home. A poorly fitted fencing system around your home is pointless when the winter weather sets in. string winds can break and even completely blow down a weak garden fence, exposing your garden and of course lowering the security of your home.

Giving your garden fence a last paint before the winter comes is highly recommended, this will help reduce the chance of the wood rotting and degrading over those wetter months of the year.

Hiring a professional to strengthen your current fencing or replacing it altogether may be recommended if you don’t want any unexpected damage to occur with the unpredictable weather.
