Fixing the fence

August 14, 2021

The fence on this side of the garden has been threatening to fall down for ages. I had a couple of sessions with the new drill on screwdriver setting, screwing the panels to the battens, so hopefully it should hold itself together. The top batten closest to the house is almost rotted through, so I made sure the panels were screwed tight to the lower two battens. The fence is the responsibility of the neighbours, who are pensioners, so I don’t want to nag them to replace it until it really needs it. As it is, hopefully I’ve given it a few more years before it collapses.

I treated the fence to a new coat of preservative, which at the time of writing is settling down into a lovely chestnut colour.

I need to paint the base today.
