My 4 year old split bamboo fencing


is beginning to look very mucky, although it is not
rotting. I bought a tin of Cuprinol Ducks Back Woodland Green, and have started painting it. Bit finicky but the result is very heartening, makes a lovely background to the border plants. Will give a second coat tomorrow, weather permitting. Am very pleased.

I have only done one side Paul. Its up against a council
boundary netting fence. Later on I will tip it over and paint the other side to please the neighbours. Then seal it in position with some strong wire loops.

Good on you Diane, sounds like a very tricky job to me, lol...but I admit I don't like painting.

I'd not heard of that brand, sound a worthwhile if fiddly Lincs I'm not much for fence painting either.....

Well not particularly brilliant at it but its more fun than fence painting
