An absolutely fantastic panel purchased from Homebase. The staff were friendly and helpful when I crashed my trolley into an ornament due to not being able to see over the 6ft panel.
Would recommend both this panel and store

bought two of these panels at my local store, they had been stored without cover and were soaking wet. found two panels after discarding about eight others.( in the dark) when I got home with them, I found that about three quarters of the nails holding them together were not doing anything and I had to use half a box of screws to keep them together. one had a chunk missing from the outer frame, which had to be repaired. Both panels had loose coving pieces, needing repair as well, also had to re-treat them before I could use them. All in all, a terrible product, would never buy it from Homebase again.

These fence panels were reasonable quality for the discounted price I paid e.g 15% off, but I would not have paid full price for them.
They are not very strong and could be put together (nailed and stapled) more accurately.
Careful selection from the available stock is essential

These panels have two vertical battens on both sides so form a strong panel. Good value for the price.

These are really poor quality, and already starting to fall to pieces before they are fitted. Just carrying them up the garden is enough to make the staples start to split the wood. I would rather pay a little more and get something that will last. Also noted that they are made in Scotland. Shipping from Scotland to Kent makes no sense and must make up a large proportion of the costs.

These panels are ready treated and sturdy so they were great to fill the gap left by old ones falling apart in the wind. Was able to take out the old and replace with these in minutes.
Comments from the neighbours was what a difference these nice new ones made and they didn't cost the earth.

Good product - Matched existing panels - Slightly rough finish to wood - Easily accessed & viewed for suitability & transporting. Reasonably priced.

The panels appear strong and well made but 2 out of the 3 bought needed the nails knocking in properly and the alignment of one corner needed adjustment. This is not very easy with the ring shanked nails that they use because they don't like to come out.
