Whether you have room for a full sized tennis court or just a small ping pong table for the children to play on, you will need some means of containing the action – and the balls.
A fence, hedge or wall will mark your boundary and keep children, balls and dogs safely contained. They also provide vertical surfaces on which to hang decorations, and grow plants against, which may be more important to you than keeping children’s tennis balls within the garden. Here are a few fences to look at…
Lap panel fencing can be an economical option, but the panels need to be good quality or they fall apart very quickly.
Feather edge panels make a good looking and long lasting fence.
Hazel and willow hurdle fencing are attractive rustic options. The light filtering through the open weave helps to make them decorative feature as well as a practical one.
Feather edge is a versatile choice, as lengths between posts can be varied, for example, if tree roots are in the way of a post, or for preventing that odd ‘gap’ that can happen at the end of a run of panels if your garden isn’t an exact number of panels long or wide.
There’s a lot of choice when it comes to fences and garden boundaries, and Plews are here to help you chose which one is right for you and your garden. So whether it’s a feather edge fence, a hazel hurdle fence, a brick wall;
a native species hedge or a nice bit of topiary,
there’s one out there that’s perfect for your garden. Get in touch if you’d like us to help.
Job done, now you can go back to watching Wimbledon.
