She then nailed a weed-proof membrane and a waterproof sheet to the posts to prevent wood rot and provide a neat appearance. The DIY whizz then shared her clever hack, using treated roof batons to hold the vertical batons in place. This saved her a significant amount of money.
The DIY enthusiast continued by using a nail gun to attach the treated wood to the tops of the fence posts.

Finally, she used instant grey stain to finish the borders, resulting in a stunning transformation of her garden.
