There is no question about it; some types of fencing are just plain ugly. If you are stuck with an ugly fence there are some things you can do about it that don’t cost the earth, so don’t despair. You don’t always need to get fencing contractors in to change it and sometime you can’t, if the place is a rental.

If the fence is made from timber, painting will also be necessary to protect it from getting wet and rotting. You might want to go for white, because a white picket fence is traditional and it goes with every other colour. But if you want something a little different, why not choose another colour, or a combination of colours?
