New Year! New Garden

Happy New Year! Everyone at Hillsborough Fencing hopes you have a wonderful start to 2016!

With this in mind we think it’s the perfect time to start the garden renovations ready for when that first bud blooms in spring.

During the winter months we recommend doing little jobs to spruce up the garden – adding a shed, a new gate or even a beautiful Arbour or Arch ready when for when your spring garden blooms.

Adding a shed to your garden is simple any time of the year, and with a wide range to choose from we make it easy for you to find the one that’s right for you. Sheds after all come in many sizes, shapes and have a wide range of purposes. We’ve recently seen an upsurge in shed offices, shed mini-pubs and even shed living rooms. Here’s a little inspiration…


Garden gates are a great way to finish off your fence, garden boundary and even a hedge. A key factor to keep in mind when choosing the right gate is to ensure whichever design you decide on, it is sturdy enough to cope with being in constant use. It should also be able to withstand the glorious British Weather.  This is why all of our gates are built to last. We recommend treating the gate before installation and again annually to get the best of your investment. 

An Arbour or Arch is the easiest way to give your garden a facelift. And this can be done any time of year. They are a beautiful way to highlight the entrance of a path or decking area, or an Arbour to provide much needed year round seating. We even have a selection of Arbours with integrated storage – a fantastic place to store your small gardening tools. And for those that are handy with a sewing machine, adding a foam seat topper is a brilliant way to make that Arbour extra comfortable.

However you decide to give your garden a life in 2016, remember Hillsborough will deliver and fit your fences, gates, and decking and even artificial grass. Leaving you with more time to decide which flowers or veggies to plant come spring.
