From the beginning brush and stone were the original materials of choice used to define boundaries and keep out all unwanted guests. Yet here we are hundreds of years on, and they are still as popular as ever.
So why are our brushwood panels being used more and more in our local Perth market?
They are available in two thicknesses and are mainly used as: freestanding boundary fences or screens; for roof cladding; or used to cover old or unsightly metal fences.
Here are six good reasons why you should be using our Brushwood panels.
Our brushwood panels are made from Melaleuca Uncinata. We harvest them under license in the outback regions of Australia and we only harvest the regenerative species of brush so we can return every 7 years to cut the new growth.
No need to cut down old growth forests or rely on pine trees that draws all the goodness & minerals out of the soil, leaving only baron landscapes.
Brushwood is an ‘Environmentally Friendly’ product.
If you look at the modern building materials available for the outside areas of your home, you would be including stone and cement paving, brick and masonry walls and metal and fibro fences, just to name a few. They are all good materials on their own, but combined they create a hard and sterile looking environment.
Brushwood, offers a natural balance and softness that is so necessary for you to be able to relax and enjoy your time outside. The soft natural look and feel of brushwood provides an ideal backdrop to any garden or outdoor area.
Insulation & Sound Proofing
Our climate can be very extreme and particularly hot in summer, so it continues to surprise me to see more and more metal roofs, fences and patios. Combine these materials with high-density housing, and limited space for natural airflow, and our outdoor areas have basically become manmade hot houses, and very uncomfortable places at times. These materials can also have detrimental impacts; in particular, metal fences can produce so much heat that they can burn young plants before they even have a chance to grow.
Brushwood panels have excellent insulation properties and can be used to clad these hot metal fences. You may even have the opportunity to make your next fence a brushwood fence. Believe me; you and your garden will love it.
Brushwood cladding does not stop at fences. Some of the coolest places to be in summer are under a Gazebo that has a brushwood roof fitted. The natural brush allows air to breath and will keep out all the thermal heat from the hot sun.
But thermal insulation is only part of the wonderful properties of brushwood. For people who live on busy roads or just need to keep the noise down, brushwood panels can also help to minimise sound, just one of the many qualities and uses of brushwood panels.
Brushwood panels require no maintenance. They are rot and white ant resistant & require no painting or oiling to maintain their colour or promote longevity. For people that are time poor, brushwood offers a great way to spruce up your garden or courtyard, without all the long hours associated with garden maintenance.
The species of brushwood we use is found in marginal saline land. It is the combination of this species, and the environment it grows in that gives our brushwood its longevity. We believe the longevity and life expectancy of our brushwood means they will outlast all timber and metal colour fences, without any ongoing maintenance required.
Easy To Install
Our brushwood panels are pre-made, and wire stitched every 20-30mm to form a solid panel. This makes for easy installation. The panels are available in three sizes (1.8m, 2.0m and 2.1m high) and with just a few basic tools, installing your own brushwood panels has never been easier!
Well there are six good reasons why our brushwood panels would make a perfect addition to your outdoor living area. Once you make your own purchase you will discover this is just the beginning. – Stephen Mant
