N.b. It doesn't last 5 years ..
Understand this, it does last 5 years in a sheltered area, if painted on exposed areas of fence/shed it will perhaps not look as good after 2/3 years. We have been using this for years, great stuff, we live by the coast in a very exposed area and our fence is painted every two years.... it does a great job and would recommend it!
This is a great price!
Didn't even last one year for us. If you read reviews of all these type of products, the majority of users dispute the claims of the manufacturers. Even professional gardeners struggle to advise a product that really does last against the elements of an equable British winter

How did you apply it? We use a 2" brush and apply it liberally. Works for us, so much better than Ronseal! Note: I'm only talking about "Ducksback"

Yep, got Ducksback and brushed it on. It's only water-based so no better than interior emulsion paint really. Read majority of the reviews, of ANY of these type of garden furniture or fence "treatment". No proper replacement for creosote since it left the shelves...
I did mine with this last year and needs doing again. Very disappointed.

All I can say is perhaps our weather in Northern Ireland is kinder to our fences! We did paint it on decent quality wood, so not sure if perhaps that made a difference!
Stopped using these water based treatments as they just do not last. I now use the oil based Creocote but it only comes in dark or light brown. Smells like creosote but slightly more environmentally friendly!

creocote mixed with old engine oil,fence will last decades
I have this on the fence-3 years still going strong
I have been using this for years , great protection against the weather and lasts for years on the fence and shed.
B&M selling it for £10
For furniture and outbuildings, use dulux opaque 10 year weathershield. Expensive but Awesome stuff.

Ducksback has wax in it to help repel water and it does last better than the other water based products we've tried. However, like the other water based products it is only a surface coating and doesn't penetrate the wood, and anywhere that the rainwater sits, the wood will rot. An oil based product would be better, but not a patch on creosote.

I hate painting the fence panels, is gladly pay. £10 a panel seen reasonable?
I'm glad fencelife plus works for you. I bought that stuff few weeks ago to do my shed & after applying 3 liberal coats I gave up.

Might as well of been using horse piddle to paint the shed it was that watery.

I went & bought some Cuprinol garden shades instead which unfortunately is a good bit more expensive but much better IMO.

Have used Cuprinol ducks back on the fence before & that's great stuff also.

Won't buy Ronseal again.
