SCANDINAVIAN REDWOOD OR WHITEWOOD: The most widely used timber in the UK for years, Scandinavian Redwood and Whitewood grow in the well managed forests of Scandinavia and the coldest parts of Northern Europe. The cold climate ensures slow growth. The growth rings are much closer together than faster growing trees from warmer climates. As a result the timber is heavy and durable with a close grain pattern. The wood is seasoned and kiln dried to achieve the correct moisture content before it is machined. Redwood and Whitewood are so similar in appearance and performance that it is difficult to tell the difference. Both are classified as slightly durable and treatment is required for outside use. The forests of Scandinavia and Northern Europe have been responsibly managed on a sustainable basis for centuries so Scandinavian Redwood or Whitewood is an enviromentally friendly choice.
PREMIUM QUALITY DESIGNER FENCING PANELS - THE BENEFITS: These premium quality high specification fence panels are designed not only to look good but also to last longer than any other fencing panels. Quality features include thicker framing, thicker tongued and grooved boards, stronger corner joints, more durable fixings and smooth planed timber. Standard fencing panels feature wafer thin timber, crude construction and rough sawn timber. Although most designer fencing panels are a little stronger and better made, none come close to the superb specification of these heavy duty panels.
These premium quality panels feature a massive 4"x2" (90x45mm) frame, with strong morticed and tenoned corners. Most fencing panels do not include a properly jointed outer frame at all, but it is an important way to hold the panels together in extreme conditions. The boards are 18mm thick and fully interlocking tongued and grooved. The fixings are all stainess steel. In addition, the boards and framing are planed timber which lasts longer. Sawn timber has a rough finish which absorbs much more water and takes longer to dry. Planed timber is smooth so water drains quicker and the wood dries quicker.
LARCH: European larch is an extremely slow growing tree which grows in the very coldest climates, extending further north than almost any other tree. It grows throughout Siberia, northern Russia, northern Europe and Scandinavia. The cold climate ensures slow growth and a dense grain. European larch (larix decidua) is the largest tree in the larch family and produces the best timber. Although it is a coniferous wood it is also deciduous as it sheds its needles. Larch is prized as a very attractive and durable timber. The grain is pronounced and the wood has a pinkish tinge. The heartwood is a darker colour and the sapwood is lighter. Larch is a heavy timber with a density of around 590 kilogrammes per cubic metre. It is durable and workable. The European larch grows to a height of between around 60 and 120 feet (20 to 40 metres) with a diameter of around 3 feet or 1 metre. European larch has a life expectancy of 15 to 25 years if untreated. European larch is about 50% harder than pine, more durable and more flexible.

SLOTTED CONCRETE FENCE POSTS: Slotted concrete posts include a full length slot or groove on each side which hold the fence panels in place without the need for any fixings. The concrete is reinforced along its length with concealed steel reinforcing bars set within the concrete which provide great strength.
Concrete fence posts are available in a range of lengths to suit your needs. The posts are set in the ground, normally in concrete. We recommend posts approximately 2' or 24" longer (600mm) than the fence height e.g. a 6' high panel requires 8' long posts.
WOODEN FENCE POSTS: Pressure treated timber fence posts are available in a range of lengths to suit your needs. The wood is smooth planed throughout with rounded edges, partly to ensure extra durability but also to provide a more refined appearance than standard sawn posts. The posts can be set in the ground, normally in concrete, or you can use galvanized steel post supports. If you plan to set your posts in the ground we recommend posts at least 2' or 24" longer (600mm) than the fence height e.g. 6' high panel requires 8' long posts. However, for best results with 6' high panels we recommend longer 9' posts, which are 3' or 36" longer (900mm) than the fence height. Longer posts are also recommended at sites with a significant slope. If you plan to use steel post supports we recommend posts at least 1' or 12" longer (300mm) than the fence height e.g. 6' high panel requires 7' long posts.
The most popular post size for fencing is 3"x3" but we also offer 4"x4". That extra inch does not sound much but it is much stronger. We recommend 4"x4" posts at any exposed site, especially for 5' or 6' high panels. It is also worth considering 4"x4" if you are paying for professional installation. The cost of installing fence panels with 3"x3" or 4"x4" posts is usually exactly the same but the fence with thicker posts should last longer.
A CHOICE OF POST CAPS: Post caps are not only an attractive design feature but also an important way to protect your investment. The post caps cover and protect the exposed end of each post to keep the water out, which ensures greater durability. They are also a great way to enhance the appearance of your fence. We offer two distinct styles. You can choose either matching timber posts caps for a more traditional appearance or galvanized steel post caps for a more contemporary look. Our post caps all feature a decorative round ball which also discharges rainwater. The wooden post caps are larger in area than the posts to ensure an overhang. The ideal fixings are small and narrow lost head nails fixed from above at an angle. The galvanized steel post caps surround the top of the posts and are fixed from the side.
PANEL FIXING CLIPS: Our zinc plated steel panel fixing brackets are designed to fix our fencing panels securely, neatly and discreetly into timber posts. The L-shaped design means that if all clips are fitted facing the same way, they are only visible from one side. We recommend fixing 5' and 6' high panels (1.5m and 1.8m) using 6 clips per panel, with 3 clips each side. We recommend fixing 3' and 4' high panels (0.9m and 1.2m) using 4 clips per panel, with 2 clips each side.
GALVANIZED STEEL POST SUPPORTS: We offer a choice of different steel post supports to simplify and improve the installation process. Setting posts in the ground in the traditional way requires the excavation of deep holes. Care is also required when backfilling the holes. You can use wet concrete, dry lean mix concrete or compacted rubble. Concrete should be finished below ground level and chamferred away from the post at the top. At the bottom the post must penetrate below the concrete for drainage purposes. A degree of skill and effort is required and there is always the worry that posts set in the ground are more likely to rot over time. Posts set in our steel post supports should be set above the ground with little or no direct contact with the ground. We offer 3 types of steel fence post supports:
DRIVE-IN SPIKES: Short offcuts of wood are placed in the sockets and the spikes are driven into the ground with a sledgehammer. The offcuts should be about 8" long (200mm). You can use offcuts from the fence posts or any similar wood offcuts. This method can be very quick and easy, especially in softer soils. However, it can be harder in heavy clay or stony ground. It is not always as precise as other methods because a large stone below ground may deflect the spike slightly out of line. Professional fence erectors do not often use drive-in spikes which were developed for the DIY market. This is our most popular type of post support.
BOLT DOWN POST SUPPORTS: Bolt down post supports can save you a lot of work if your fencing passes over an area of existing concrete. Instead of breaking up the concrete or cutting a hole through it you can simply bolt one or two of these post supports directly into the concrete. 2 fixings are required per post support, on opposite sides, so you just need to drill a couple of holes. Although much easier to use these post supports are not as strong as the other options we offer, so we do not recommend fixing long runs of fencing this way. There are 2 slightly different types offered. The box shape socket surrounds the post to provide the strongest fix if this is your preference. The U-shape socket can be fitted with the flanges barely visible if this is you prefer.
CONCRETE-IN STIRRUPS: These concrete in stirrups or H-brackets are the best method we know of for installing fence posts, combining the best of the traditional way with the best of modern engineering. Professional fence erectors should be happy with this method although it may take longer. The bottom half of the stirrups are set in concrete which requires holes to be excavated, but the holes are not as deep as traditional post holes. The combination of concrete and thick steel is immensely strong. The top of the stirrup should be above the concrete. For greater precision the posts can be concreted as the posts are fitted. Alternatively, the stirrups can be concreted in advance, which is quicker but precise positioning is required. The uppermost flanges can be fitted in 2 different ways. At the most exposed sites the flanges should be front and back for maximum strength. At less exposed sites the flanges will be barely visible if they are fitted from side to side.
GATES: Our superb selection of great value single and double gates are available in a range of heights and widths to suit most requirements. Styles include palisade style gates with vertical pales, joinery gates with tongued and grooved boarding and gates to match your choice of fencing. Our deluxe gates are surprisingly affordable and feature joinery frames with comb jointed or morticed and tenoned joints. Ironmongery packs are available as an option.
TIMBER SLEEPERS: These chunky railway sleepers can be used in a number of different landscaping projects in your garden, such as dividing walls, edging, steps, as bearers or foundation beams under garden buildings, and so on. The overall size is approximately 100x200mm and 2400mm long (approximately 8ft), though they can be cut to suit on site if required. They have been pressure treated for added longevity. Pressure treatment is a lifetime preservative treatment.
MICROPOROUS PRESERVATIVE - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: Our quality microporous preservatives are impervious to water but not to water vapour. This allows the wood to breathe. You can order up to 3 separate colours if required. At least two coats are normally required with a further coat at periodic intervals.
Our 3 star preservative is practical and affordable with a choice of 4 colours. It covers around 10 square metres per litre and normally lasts 1-2 years before a further coat is required.
Our 4 star preservative is a high quality preservative which covers around 9 square metres per litre and normally lasts 2-5 years before a further coat is required. It is available with a choice of 12 colours.
Our 5 star preservative is a deluxe high build preservative which can be used to achieve a stunning finish. Each extra coat increases the colour and sheen. It covers around 8 square metres per litre and normally lasts 2-5 years before a further coat is required. It is available with a choice of 12 colours.
Based on average coverage five litres of our 4 star preservative is enough for two coats on an 8'x10' shed or an 8'x8' log cabin. Ten litres is enough for three coats on a 10'x16' shed or a 12'x10' log cabin. Coverage varies according to the smoothness of the surface and the porosity of the timber. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. All of these preservatives are safe for use with children and pets. These microporous preservatives are only available when you purchase a Summer garden building or if you purchased a Summer building in the past. Prices include free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland. Colours are only as accurate as reproductive techniques allow.
WATERPROOF COLOUR SEAL - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: This advanced water-based microprous timber treatment uses the latest high-tech nanotechnology to create a long-lasting waterproof wood coating that is environmentally friendly. It is suitable for use on all softwood and hardwood products and is especially recommended for use on pressure treated timber, including sheds, summerhouses, gazebos, fencing and garden furniture. This timber treatment will colour, protect and enhance your exterior wood. It contains a mould inhibitor to protect the coating and can be used on all outside and inside timber. It gives a traditional matt wood stain finish in a range of natural colours. It can easily be applied by sprayer, brush or roller. It is recommended that the second coat is applied as soon as the first coat is touch dry. We advise for ultimate performance the timber has a wood preservative pre-treatment. For the first treatment, two coats are recommended and will give a traditional wood stain finish that is long lasting. A further coat is recommended every 2-5 years. One litre covers approximately 10-12 square metres. Coverage varies according to the smoothness of the surface and the porosity of the timber. On average five litres covers a 12x8 shed with two coats and ten litres covers a 10x20 with three coats. It is recommended that 2 coats be applied. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. The appearance of colours and shades may vary between different screens or devices. Prices include free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland.
WATERPROOF CLEAR SEAL - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: Our hardwearing clear seal is ideal as a clear varnish for bare timber or as a waterproof top coat for painted wood and pressure treated timber. It is also ideal as a waterproof floor varnish, especially the polyurethane clear seal. The smooth and shiny finished surface is waterproof and easy to clean. Available in a choice of acrylic or polyurethane, these colourless water based coatings are almost odourless and recommended for smooth planed timber only. One coat is normally required as a sealing top coat on painted or treated timber. A minimum of two coats are normally required on untreated wood. Up to three coats may be required for floors. An unsealed timber floor quickly shows muddy boot marks and other dirt. For best results a floor should be treated at the earliest opportunity while the timber is new and clean. On average five litres of our 5 star clear seal is enough for three coats on a 12'x12' floor, two coats on the walls of an 8'x8' log cabin or one coat on the walls of a 12'x16' log cabin. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. The price includes free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland.
