Fence blown down?

With such windy conditions last night I’m sure many fences fell victim to the wind. Visit us online at to browse our large range of garden fencing and gates.

At Jacksons Fencing….

  • We use high quality timber from sustainable sources (FSC and PEFC), suitable for intensive treatment (e.g. not spruce for posts).

  • Our panel inserts sit within rebated, morticed and tenoned framing for structural integrity adding strength to the panel.
  • Products designed from substantial sections, for a long life and to retain their good looks.

  • All assembly fixings are stainless steel. All other fittings are either stainless steel or hot-dip galvanized. For example a single 6 foot Premier Lattice Panel contains over 350 individual stainless steel screws.

  • All components are cut and machined prior to treatment so as to ensure full protection. This can mean dimensions increase due to the timber swelling after treatment.

  • Panels are screw-fixed to our specially designed 3 piece slotted posts for increased security.

  • We offer the longest guarantee available on timber products for residential use.

Garden Decking

Garden Decking

Garden Decking

Decking is the ideal product to use to create an outdoor area with minimal maintenance and can be a lot easier to install than the likes of flag stone.

Now is the time to start thinking about cleaning your decking ready for the spring/ summer.

How to clean your decking?
The best way to clean your decking is to get a hard bristle broom and sweep off the leaves and debris, alternatively you could use a pressure hose to all the mulch out of the grooves.

Remember to brush your deck regularly to keep any debris like leaves and rubbish from building up in drainage spaces. Debris can hold moisture and the resulting rotting can lead to unsightly staining on the boards. Move planters, tables and chairs around the deck to allow the deck to dry out under them and to avoid irregular lightening of the boards by the sun.
