Yes. Anyone with DIY experience would be able to easily cut the panels down to the required size.
It depends on the type and size of the panels you are trying to place next to each other. The slats on the square panels may not line up if the panels are different sizes.
This isn’t applicable with the diagonal-slatted panels.
All trellis panels sold by Garden Trellis Direct have squares with an opening of approx 40mm (1½ inches).
The wood used for the framing on most panels is 30mm x 30mm (1 ? inch x 1 ? inch) with the exception of the 1800mm x 1800mm (70 7/8 inches x 70 7/8 inches) panels which have a 45mm x 45mm (1¾ inch x1¾ inch) frame.
The wood used as slats in our trellis panels is 20mm x 9mm (¾ inch x ? inch) with rounded corners. The prestige range uses slats measuring 32mm x 12mm.
Our standard range can. although our panels are listed as being 1800mm wide (70 7/8 inches), there is no reason why you can’t turn the panels to have, for example a panel that is 1800mm (70 7/8 inches) high x 1200mm (47 ¼ inches) wide. But, please do bear in mind that if you are going to mix the orientation the slats may not line up. Our prestige range has drainage holes in the frame so not compatible for turning.
The only difference is that you can see the staples on the reverse of the panels.
The wood used as slats in our slatted fence panels is 30mm x 14mm (¾ inch x ¹/8 inch) or 45mm x 14mm (1 ¾ x ¹/8 inch)
Although every effort is made to line up the slats from panel to panel, variation can occur due to natural timber movement.
Post caps are pieces of timber that are placed on the top of fence posts to finish the overall look and to protect the end grain of the posts.
Top capping is a continuous piece of timber to cover the posts and panels.
Post caps and top capping are optional extras, although we do recommend you use either top capping or post caps to protect the end grain of the posts
For your reference, 70mm x 70mm is equivalent to approx 2¾ inches x 2¾ inches. 90mm x 90mm is equivalent to approx 3 ½ inches x 3 ½inches.
It depends on how you are installing them. For example, if they are going into the ground you will need to add a minimum of 600mm (approx 2 ft). If you are using them with the studding into the top of a wall you will need to go one increment bigger than the panel height. For instance, a 900mm (35 ? inches) high panel will need a post of 1200mm (47 ¼ inches).
