Are you ever feeling irritated when people peer into your garden or are on the edge that your property isn’t secure enough? A fence could be exactly the answer you’ve been looking for. Many houses have low walls separating the properties or nothing to separate them at all. Getting a fence gives you structure and protection at the same time.
In this post, the positives for getting a fence will be outlined, the service that we provide and the different types of fences that we offer.
What Fence Service do we Provide?
In many places, a fence is a necessity. If you are choosing to get a fence for your property then you should have the widest choice possible when it comes to making a decision. A fence is not only practical in the sense that it protects from wind and gives privacy but also visually improves and outlines your garden, almost like a frame. Purchasing fencing doesn’t have to be a mundane and unexciting task, here at Sansums we try and make it something to be enthusiastic about. You can have a choice of height, material, pattern, texture and thickness- not to mention colour.

The Benefits of Fences
Security is of high importance when it comes to feeling safe in your property and knowing that your valuables and possessions are not at risk. A good quality fence can provide this extra security. It stops intruders from gaining access to your property and also being able to see what items you have in your garden and in your house. British people are known for liking their privacy and keeping themselves to themselves. A fence means you can avoid nosey neighbours peering into your space, making you feel uneasy and self-conscious- the last thing you want in your own home. Fences are incredibly useful for when you have pets that you do not want to stray too far and get lost.
Timber fencing is, in fact, one of the most popular ways of defining a boundary across Swindon and the rest of the UK, as it not only provides security and privacy, but it also looks attractive and provides versatility.
If you are a homeowner with a pet, of course, you want them to have as much freedom as possible, yet without a correct garden fence, this can be problematic. The last thing you want is for your dog to jump over your ill-fitting fence and start harassing your neighbours! Having a proper fence that is properly proportioned to the size of your pet can make a huge difference.
The Importance of Checking With Your Neighbours
If you are interested in our fences in Swindon, before you make any purchases or start any construction, it’s courteous to check with your neighbours. Make sure that the fence is your responsibility to maintain and make sure that they are happy with the fence and its design too, as it will also affect their space.
If you are looking to replace, maintain or alter an existing fence, then you will not need any planning permission as long as you do not make it higher. If you are installing new boundaries you may also need planning permission, so it is important to check any changes with your local planning authority.
Alternatives to our Fence Swindon service
When you picture a fence in your mind you probably think of a wooden fence with a lined pattern. There are many different types of fence and alternatives. With these alternatives comes positives and negatives. Below are the two main types of alternative fences:
Composite Fencing – This is a mixture of wood fibre in a resin. This option after comes as a textured solid alternative to fencing that can be built to resemble a stone wall. Composite fencing is durable and can withstand force such as balls or other items hitting them and extreme weather. Some people do not like these fences as they appear quite institutionalised.
Chain Fencing – This is less commonly used in homes and is more likely used in public areas for security purposes. Chain fencing is very durable and can withstand a lot of force.
Our Final Top Tips for Choosing Your Fences
- If you are working with existing fencing posts, make sure to check the space between them as this can dictate the style and size of the panels you can use.
- Select the size and height that will best fit your garden and your neighbour’s.
- Before starting any work, make sure to be courteous and check with your neighbours.
- Double-check the exact size and technical specifications of the panels you are using.
- If you are looking to change one tired panel, why not consider changing the entire run? Changing a tired run of fencing can make a dramatic transformation to your overall garden space.
- Pay attention to the garden fence you choose and note whether it will need re-treating annually.
