How to paint a fence or shed

The warmer weather brings people out into the garden to finally soak up the sun, and for many it’s a chance to take care of those tasks left over from winter, including painting the fence or shed.

Unlike an interior wall, a fence or shed requires a different approach and type of paint to ensure it not only looks great but is long-lasting.
