Product Focus: Western Red Cedar Half-Height Slatted Screens

Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar Slatted Screen is an extremely popular contemporary alternative to traditional fences. The flexibility of this product allows our customers to use it to create a variety of designs. One growing trend we have noticed is the use of “Half-Height Slatted Screen Kits” particularly in areas where space is limited; attached to brick walls.

To explore why Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens are increasingly being used in this way, we caught up with London-based garden designer Miles Raybould, from Belsize Gardens. He has been designing and building gardens across London for over 10 years and has extensively used Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens, supplied by Silva Timber.

Miles Raybould:

“Western Red Cedar Half-Height Slatted Screens are a more pragmatic approach to the fact that a lot of London gardens will have 1 metre high brick boundary walls, and most clients are looking for a little extra privacy.

The slatted screens combine beautifully with old stock brickwork and give a slightly more contemporary look. What they also do is provide the necessary sense of privacy while not completely blocking out the light. This is very important in London especially where space is at premium.

Another major reason that I use the cedar screens in this way is that they act as the perfect backdrop for planting, with the lush greens and shadows falling on the pinks and oranges of Western Red Cedar.”

It is satisfying to see customers of ours such as Miles taking our versatile products and turning them into unique designs that fit into their particular projects.
