Maintaining your wooden fence
Listen up, kids! For the past few months you may have heard your dad grumbling about how it’s time to treat your wooden boundary fence. But, since it’s been snowing and storming all through spring, washing, staining and protecting the fence has been put off again and again. With Father’s day approaching we thought we’d give you simple instructions to treat your wooden fence so that you can give your dad a day off while you do the work for him. It’s simple, it’s necessary and your dad will love it.
Don’t be afraid to invert the roles at home, give dad (or your husband) a great, practical loving gift: a beautifully protected fence! He’ll be happy someone put in the work.
