With trees falling, planes struggling to land (yes, we’re watching the live stream too), and fences being torn apart, Storm Eunice has certainly made its mark – and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping anytime soon.
If you don’t fancy getting hit with up to 122mph winds, we seriously suggest cosying up on the couch and not leaving the house for the foreseeable future.

Best of all? You can order your new fence from the comfort of your bed, and with many of them available for next day delivery, it’ll be as if the storm never happened…

Best fencing types for windy conditions:
Picket fences feature small gaps between each panel to alleviate the force of the wind on the fence. This allows some of the wind’s force to escape through the gaps, helping it stay stable and reducing pressure on the structure.
Similarly to the picket style, trellis fencing also benefits from the same principle of the gaps relieving the stress of wind on the overall structure.
While wood is hardy, durable material, it still can’t supplant metal for sheer strength. While it may not be the prettiest of fences, their durability means they can withstand huge amounts of force ranging from wind to other adverse conditions.
Concrete Bases & Posts
Whatever material you select, make sure the fence is reinforced properly to keep it secure in all weathers. Concrete posts and bases can give your wooden fence that extra bit of support as opposed to wooden posts which often fall flat.
