Using a wood oil on a garden fence is a great way of prolonging the life of fence panels and posts. Decking oils are perfect for use on fence panels as they help to protect the timber from cracking, splitting and warping. They provide excellent weather resistance and are available in both clear and coloured formulations.
When treating a new fence or a bare wood one that hasn't been treated for a number of years, we highly recommend treating the fence panels with 2 coats of an exterior wood preservative prior to oiling. This helps to protect the timber from biological threats such as mould, algae and wood boring insects.
