    The only thing I know about spraying garden fences is that you neighbour has to like that shade of green or brown on their car!

    This will work a treat, it's worth it for the time saving alone.
    I dilute the fence treatment by about 10%, makes application smoother and faster (y)

    Seriously, depending on the type of fencing you have, it might be better to us a decorator's paint roller or even paint pad, instead of a sprayer as you'll get a better coat so won't end up going over bits again, and won't end up with it splattered everywhere and on you if the wind suddenly gets up! For rough fencing I used a decorator's paste brush with shortish bristles as this gets the paint in without a lot of splashing/mess.

    Sprayers are okay but you actually do quite a bit of 'back and forth' with them to get every bit covered so I'd always use a brush/roller etc in preference.

    I'd use a brush.

    Unless you build it less substantially than Fort Knox, and have people waiting for buses sit on it with their fat arses and demolish the bloody thing, Yes - it probably will last a fair while.

    Unlike you Shifty - we have at least that length of fence to replace completely since the people walking along the public right of way alongside the side of our house/gardens demolish it bit by bit by kicking it etc. Personally, I'd like to do flimsy cheap LarchLap look alike - with outward facing bloody big spikes on our side.

    Imagine the surprise on their faces some dark night ROFLMAO!

    We had to replace our front walls which had been 'attacked' one night by idiots on a drunken rampage ... they'd done a load of damage in the village and on their way home decided to push over our walls. As they were built of old brick (about 400 years old) it wasn't cheap and we had a hell of a job getting someone to do it - the cost was £3,900 (paid for by insurance). We ended up with a friend's son doing it (he had a landscaping business who did fences, walls, block paving etc too) so we did a deal with him to replace the front concrete 'yard' at the same time with block paving in exchange for us supplying him with the extra bricks he needed for the walls to replace quite a lot that weren't reusable so he didn't have to try to source/buy them (we'd taken down a large garage built form the same bricks so had loads), all we had to pay was £100 excess.

    I'm not suggesting that your fence gets 'vandalised' of course but if it did at least you could claim for it ... do you ever get any rampaging hoards going down it and 'attacking it'?

    It might be worth reading this before you start.
    Anti-Vandal Paint and the Law
    Under the Occupier's Liability Act 1984 householders owe a duty of care to anyone on their property, whether they are entitled to be there or not. The duty is to protect people from an injury as a result of a foreseen hazard. If anti-vandal paint has been applied to a fence and an intruder slips and injures himself as a result, this is something that the householder could have predicted. Householders could also be caught up by the Highways Act 1980 if anti-vandal paint is used on a wall or surface which adjoins a public highway. The Highways Act states that care must be taken to avoid "harm or injury" to any person or animal using the highway.:)

    It's difficult to do that, with all the surrounding homes if a rampaging horde went along the jitty, shedloads of neighbours would be ringing the police, not just us!

    Actually we'd need planning permission for the spikes too since they would be alongside a Public Highway !
