    As some of you may know we moved just before xmas to a house, well we have been working very hard to get the garden ready for reseeding in the spring as we had to remove all the old grass as the garden was in a right mess.
    Well we were hoping the council would replace the missing fence between the two gardens but I was told that wasn't going to happen so now I am left to sort it out.
    Well I have had a good look round and am not sure what is a good fence panel and of any good places to buy and deliver. we need to fence an area of 31.4 feet.
    Any advice would be really great.

    Oh, I'll be watching this one. We have a tiny lawn in the back (the houses in our area are close with deep narrow lots) but the house next door is rented to some pretty obnoxious people.

    I told Herself that I want a fence. She's resisting!

    I think (for here in the humidity and land of the termites) I'd want either a solid panel, six foot fence, or a shadow panel at least, made of white resin like material so that it would resist the weather, and not need painting...

    I have NO idea what that would cost, but for one side we'd need about forty feet.

    We've bought fence panels from Wickes to replace fallen ones and the new ones have survived fierce winds. In fact during one storm a post snapped but the panels stayed intact.

    The vinyl fence is very popular around here (for obvious reasons) and I can tell you that it is VERY expensive!! It is wonderful since it doesn't need any upkeep and will last, in theory, forever, but it is quite the investment

    We looked at these but had a problem due to wickes not delivering,
    We also need to get a large number of brickes and again wickes don't deliver.

    Sorry :( I know around here it is. Maybe in your area it would be cheaper? You don't have the weather issues that we have up here, so maybe there isn't as much demand? Worth looking into though

    what they dont deliver to you coz your too far away, coz they do deliver.

    what about your local wood yard, jewsons, B&Q, Homebase etc
