Case Study - Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens create a modern city garden

Slatted screens are becoming an increasingly popular solution for transforming regular gardens into contemporary outdoor living spaces.

Ben Lannoy Landscapes, Hampshire, recently completed a project for a client who wanted a 'slick London garden in a small townhouse' and needed to find suitable products to match the client's taste and relatively small budget.

Ben suggested a number of elements to provide the modern look, with Western Red Cedar Slatted Screens offered as a potential backdrop and fence for the rest of the garden.

Ben commented, "The client asked for a modern city garden from a standard new build development. We agreed that Western Red Cedar would bring the modern impact to the design immediately. My client was browsing for styles and found We began liasing with the team and received great customer service which made life really easy."

Western Red Cedar screens are a cost effective and stylish option for fencing, providing a beautful natural product with warm tones and a striking appearance. With Western Red Cedar being light in weight yet incredibly stable, it offers the ideal timber to work with on site, allowing the user to create wonderful fencing in no time at all.

Western Red Cedar also takes and retains finishes very well due to it's flat grain and even texture. Rystix Exterior Sealer was recommended by Silva Timber, as the customer wanted a product with a long maintenance-free life. Applying a finish will lengthen Western Red Cedar's life, protect against weathering and enhance the natural grain of the timber. Ben mentioned, "The boards looked even better once it had been treated."

We were most pleased to hear Ben and his customer were happy with the final outcome of their garden design, "We were overly satisfied with our experience with Silva Timber and will definitely call on them again."
