Timber gravel boards are an essential piece of many garden features. They are used as a retainer, to prevent small amounts of soil from accessing the base of fences. This means that they prevent a full range of fencing solutions, from fencing boards to panels and even closeboard fencing from rotting due to constant exposure to harmful elements.
They provide an effective barrier between the ground and the fence, which can be essential when the ground is wet or damp. This allows your border to avoid damage from moisture and other potentially harmful ingredients.
Timber gravel boards remain an essential part of any wooden fence, and could really work to save you money in the long run. These sacrificial boards take the brunt of moisture damage from the earth, allowing your fences to retain their structural integrity and avoid rot. After several years, instead of replacing your entire fence as it starts to rot from the ground up, you will only need to replace these gravel boards. As well as taking a lot less time and effort, it can also be a great way to save money.
The benefits of these hard-wearing materials include:
What’s more, these rustic pieces of wood can add a unique design to your property and really help to create a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
