We are re-fencing our garden boundary fence 42m long which runs right down our long garden top to bottom on just one side (the other side being trees).

Can you advise what fencing would look best as we need it to also act as a screen for privacy.

We need it approx 6ft to start nearest the house then we want to go down to 4ft where less privacy is required.

We want it to look as natural as possible.

We look forward to any suggestions you may have.

What would look best is entirely a matter of taste - and none of us could make this decision for you. Why not have a look at the websites of big garden fencing suppliers and see what you like. There are some big names in DIY and gardening & they deliver.

i think close board fencing between 4x4 posts would do the best job as the height can be adjusted to keep the line straight its very private a will last much longer with caps and gravel boards. A lot of fencing firms have sites where you can see the different sorts of fencing.
