What’s the best time to install new garden fencing?
When you are preparing to install a new fence for your garden, there are plenty of things to think about. Factors such as the budget, choice of materials, and your home or business property boundary lines, are probably some of the problems that come immediately to mind, but what about the timing of the actual fence installation? Yes, choosing the perfect time for installing your new fence can make the process a whole lot easier, and an enjoyable all-round process. So, I would like to go over some of the most important points to bear in mind when it comes to installing your new fence.
Best to Install during the dryer weather conditions of the Spring and Summer months.
The best practice would be to look at installing a new fence on a day with no rain or minimum humidity. Dry and mild conditions are perfect for installing your fence as the ground will be easier to work with. Too much moisture in the ground can make placing and positioning your'e posts a little bit trickier, especially when extreme heat causes timber to split, warp and discolour. On days with excessive rainfall or high temperatures, it's best not to try at all! Choosing the right treatment for your fence is as important if not more than choosing one that will protect it from weather and other outside elements.
Try not to install your fencing in adverse weather conditions
Adverse weather can certainly make building a fence much more difficult, and in some circumstances not possible at all. While rain can be your worst enemy when you're working outside, heavy and extended periods of rain will create an even bigger challenge for fencing installation. Why? The earth becomes extremely wet from all the precipitation which makes it not only harder to dig post holes but dampens a less stable foundation making installing posts that are already very difficult at best nearly impossible
Continuous rain can lead to a number of problems for your fence.
For example, if you have posts installed and the ground is wet from continuous rainfall, then water might fill up in these holes during installation causing lasting effects such as damage-prone fences that need replacing sooner than anticipated. Going into the winter with a plan that includes what to do when it gets cold will keep you from having any surprises. The key is not venturing out onto the frozen ground, as this can be difficult and dangerous without proper equipment or plenty of determination. Even if you have all your tools at hand for digging through tough soil in warm weather conditions, try to avoid trying on ice because getting caught up there could become a problem!
