What is the least expensive fence to build?
Treated pine tends to be the most affordable, and also durable wood option. Cedar tends to be a pricier wood for fencing, and redwood and teak at the top end. Vinyl, wrought iron, brick or stone fences are the most expensive.
What can I do with old fence panels?
Your first option is to take the panelling to your local tip. There’ll always be a section for green waste – wood, leaves, and so on, but they might not take fencing that has been treated with paint or varnish. It’s best to check this with your local council before making the trip.

If the fence posts of your existing fence are in good shape but the fence itself isn’t, you can replace the fence panels and attach them to the existing posts. All existing posts should be straight and level before you install the new fence panels.
Can I burn old fence panels?
Burn it. Many people looking to dispose of fence paneling opt to burn the wood in their garden. This option is not recommended as treated wood can give off toxic fumes. Care also needs to be taken to ensure there is no risk of fire spreading and endangering others.
Is it cheaper to build a fence horizontal or vertical?
