When we started our garden makeover earlier in the year we planned to go for an English Country Garden look. I decided we would paint our gross brown stained fence panels a chalky white colour. One coat on one panel told me straight away that it was going to be a bad idea! It just didn’t look right!
So we decided to change the plan… And moved on to bamboo fencing! Which is basically just a roll of bamboo that you pin to your existing fence panels. Easy!
We got our rolls from B&Q, they cost £25.00 for 4 metres in length but there are other sizes available.
It took about two hours to unroll and hammer to the fence and the transformation is amazing! I keep looking out and thinking how lovely it is! We have put one layer of bamboo on but we need to double up to cover up the white paint mistake!!
We are slowly getting here with this garden and I am pleased that we are taking our time to get things just how we want them.
I now need to find a lovely parasol to keep the sun off the sofa on the long hot six weeks holiday we are going to have!!!! Has anyone seen a nice one?
