Screening walls are a functional addition to a garden area. They are used to block out visibility between areas. They are used mainly in residential homes or between apartment blocks. Screening can offer a very sophisticated look to your garden area. It provides privacy and can also block out the sun and excess noise. Screening panels are often constructed using sheet aluminium, bamboo, lattice or wood. Decorative aluminium screening can be cut to show intricate patterns making for an elegant added feature to your area all the while still providing functionality. We source our screening materials from reputable providers which have tried and tested their products.

One of the clear benefits of outdoor privacy screening is… Privacy! As the name states, screening creates a private area for your home. Screening also provides some other added benefits such as reduction and filtration of noise, wind and heat.

We can construct walls using different types of hardwood. We use a combination of different hardwoods such as merbau, spotted gum and jarrah to achieve excellent finishes. It’s no surprise as to why hardwood has been used as a building material for so long given its beautiful look and feel. We can construct entire walls using hardwoods or we can construct a wall using a different material and use the hardwood as a material to add cladding to the wall. This can be a more cost-effective way depending on just how thick you require the wall to be. Hardwood offers a distinct aesthetic look which cannot be achieved using other materials.
Why Should I Choose Hardwood For My Walls?
