Best fence protection ive used
23 Mar 2014
By Mattyg
, Leicester
"bought 2 tubs of the forest green as I thought i'd need 2 because I live in a typical terrace with a long garden and had a combination of 15 five and six foot fence panel down one side to do. So far I have done 13 and it looks as though there is plenty left in the first tub to do the last 2 at a later date so it does go a long way.
The coverage was better than I expected with just one coat. Nice and even with hardly any patching. I may just try giving a quick lick second coat to see if it ups the colour a bit but 1 coat is satisfactory I would say.
One thing I will say is buy a proper Fencing brush, it makes life so much easier and a lot quicker than using just a standard paintbrush.

Water off a ducks back
1 Jun 2013
By Matster
, Shropshire
"I was discussing with a professional painter and decorator about painting fences and he said that it is important to go for a product that is wax enriched - This product met that criteria.
For a price of £9.99 for 9 litres is good value, you can get stuff often on "offer" for £6.99 but they do not contain the waxes.
I coated five new pressure treated 6'x4' feather-edge panels on both sides with one unit of this. A week later I was watering plants under one of the panels and spray hit the panel which instantly beaded rather than spreading over the wood which is obviously a good sign, time will tell if this is a better investment cost wise compared to cheaper options."

Excellent Value Fencelife
28 May 2012
By CambridgeBob

"Great price, great product, great service from Screwfix! Ordered online at the best rice I could find and ready to collect at a local branch, what an easy process.
Enough product for five, six foot panels both sides, plus the posts and gravel boards.
One coat really is enough.

"Depending on timber you are using one coat is good enough to be as advertised on tub, but a second coat gives it a real forest green look about it. Other than that,its a great product to use on timber for protection."

"I bought this to protect a shed which was looking shabby. Most of the previous stain had disappeared and the wood was grey in colour. The green has done a good job but needed two generous coats to get a good deep green finish. Having said that, the large 9L pot will be plenty and I will have some left over for touching up. I suspect the 'one coat' will only work on new wood. I love the finished colour - it blends very well in the garden. Tha actual colour is a bit greener than the attached photo."

Superb Value for Money

"Excellent coverage, garden gate + 7 fence panels one side & two and a half both sides.
Still have enough from two buckets to do neighbour's 3 panels of a woven fence. She's delighted!
Easy to use especially when the sun's shining.

Perfectly adequate

"Cheaper than other outlets. Only time will tell about its longevity. Ignore the "one coat" claim. You'll need at least two. Probably 3 or 4, but that's no different from any other brand."

Needs 2 coats for best results
21 Aug 2012
By Rugbyman
, Poole, Dorset, UK
"Would agree with other reviewers that this is a good product & well priced. However 1 coat did not give good enough colour for us, we applied 2nd coat to get the desired result. This was on new wood so expected only to do one coat.
Still a good product & would use again due to the good value.

Forest Green Looks So Clean
22 Jun 2012
By GolferMan
, S44 Derbyshire
"Ronseal Forest Green is a great colour on waney lap fencing panels. The product itself was not homogeneous in the tub and needed a good mix before use. It did seperate as I used it but a vigorous stir during use resulted in homogeneity again.
The one shot coverage was a bit of an understatement and my panels required going over a couple of times for deep colour. I covered 6 panels/posts with one 9 litre tub. I need to buy more for the remaining panels. I will use a drill with stirrer blade to give it a good mix before use on the subsequent tubs. I would recommend it but following my simple guidance should make it a more user friendly product.
"
