”Cedar and Redwood are two popular materials used for fencing”
The garden fence is an important element of the landscape design because it can be seen from the outside and when we talk about property value, a beautiful fence adds significantly to the aesthetic and financial value of the house. The garden fence is the most visible element from the street and it provides protection and clarity when it comes to boundary lines, but also transforms the exterior and adds character and individuality to the curb appeal.
Cedar and Redwood are two popular materials used for fencing.
Redwood is one of the most popular choices for quality and economical fencing. Apart from being a cost-effective material, it provides durability and a sleek look that will withstand any harsh forces of nature. Redwood has a very unique ability to absorb and release moisture to stay in balance with the surrounding temperature and humidity levels.
Cedar fencing is also a very popular choice for homeowners. Colour and beauty of this particular wood has attracted a lot of people. It is usually painted to preserve the natural colour and beauty. Western Red Cedar or cedar wood is environmentally clean because it is biodegradable, recyclable and renewable.
Like Redwood, Cedar is also a lightweight and durable wood, which is very easy to work with in terms of design. It is also very resistant to insects and other natural elements.
Contemporary Horizontal Fencing
Horizontal fence panels offer an incredible look and modern style that will provide both the privacy for your backyard and great visual aesthetics. More people are beginning to use horizontal fencing rather than vertical. Horizontal fence panels are an excellent choice for contemporary houses as they work exceptionally well with the straight lines of modern architecture.
Horizontal fencing may also be more ideal for larger gardens or for those with a limited budget because these fences need less material than a vertical fence. As with a vertical fence, you can choose whether you want to go with a solid fence or leave spaces between pickets.
”Cedar Softwood Slatted Fence Panels”
”Venetian fence panel”
Venetian fence panel is a great way to help create a lighter garden, as it allows light through the horizontal pales. This can produce bands of light and shade to dramatic effect. It also offers less wind resistance than solid panels. Smaller panels can be used for privacy on a veranda or terrace.
”Slatted panels give a contemporary feel to outdoor areas and terraces, providing a stylish privacy and security solution for your garden.”
Treating panels to protect the colour
Some clients prefer to maintain the look of the warm colours of Cedar and opt to have the fencing panels treated. We use a professional water based sprayable stain, this enhances the natural colours of the Cedar panels and keeps them looking fresh as the day they were installed. Normally this stain would need to be refreshed every two to three years to keep the panels looking their best.

What Our Customers Say
Abel Landscapes were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We were given advice by Darren Moss on the best layout for our garden, which included plans for areas we had not even considered. The workforce were so professional and never stopped working for a minute. They cleared up after themselves and left everywhere spick and span. I would thoroughly recommend them.Dianne YoungSee The Project
