Look After Your Garden Fence the Professional Way

February 24, 2017

how-to-protect-your-fence-in-2-minutes

Every fence needs good protection. Even if your fence has stood strong, if it hasn’t had any loving care for more than 5 years, it’s probably time to treat it again. TBS stocks everything you need to keep your fence (or your shed) looking great and able to withstand the elements.

Particularly on a north-facing fence, panels and posts can start looking a bit green. Everbuild Fungicidal Wash is just the ticket. We sell a 1L spray bottle or a 5L container for painting or spraying. Just treat affected areas, leave for a while, and brush off with cold water.

TBS can supply you with traditional brush-on wood stains and protectors, but we also sell Ronseal Fencelife Sprayable. It’s the quick and easy way to give thorough, lasting protection to your fences and your shed.

Forget the extension leads!

The Ronseal Power Sprayer uses a 6v powered motor for consistent pressure and even coverage. It boasts a precision fan nozzle for accurate and controlled spray pattern.  The control trigger is engineered for ease of control. The sprayer has a convenient 2m hose. Clip straight on to a tub of Fencelife Sprayable and away you go. No pumping, no pouring, no mess!  The Power Sprayer’s batteries are good for the treatment of up to 40 fence panels, at around 2 minutes per panel.

TBS stocks a range of popular colours

Ronseal Sprayable Fencelife comes in 5 litre tubs. It is wax-enriched for maximum protection. It protects against fading too.

TBS stocks the following popular colours:

Dark Oak     Forest Green     Harvest Gold     Medium Oak     Red Cedar

Sprayable Fencelife is touch-dry in 1-2 hours, depending on the type and condition of the timber.

Ronseal guarantees 5 years of excellent, durable protection to your fences – which means peace of mind for you!

  1. This looks well good. I like the fact that it’s cordless. Is it easy enough to spray a panel without too much mess, though?


  2. It’s all in the nozzle, Stuart.The fan shape has apparently shown in tests that gives the best spray pattern and no waste, if correctly used.


  3. The sprayable fence treatment can be okay (I have used the Cuprinol). On the plus side it is twice as quick as a brush. 44 panels would take me 11 plus hours with a brush, for each side. On the downside, it must be a calm day, dont spray near anything that you don’t want tiny spots on (neighbours may not appreciate it!) and if you have concrete posts a sprayer is useless. The overspray problem can be serious. I saw a conservatory two doors away from the treated fence, covered in spots. And another gardener I know, had to pay out several hundred pounds, to replace the ruined garden furniture of an irate neighbour. Personally I prefer creosote, with a dash of oil, quicker to apply than fencelife and actually helps to preserve the fence, rather than just prettying it up. The only downside is the cost, as it doesn’t go as far as fencelife.
