I am looking to buy fence panel, concrete post and gravel board. Looking at wickes and B & Q they are bit over priced, can anyone suggest or share any online deal for this.

It is very usual that the "high street" names (Homebase, B & Q etc.) will be at the top end, price-wise. It's the "convenience" factor. You will normally get much better prices by using a local independant supplier - one that specialises in a particular field - i.e. garden centre, timber or builders merchant etc.

An good example would be wooden fence posts. Homebase wanted £7.99 for a single 30mm round, 1.80m long fence stake. My local builders merchant - £1.90! And if buying in bulk, they get cheaper. So, it certainly pays to shop around. You are bound to have some sort of independant local merchant who will most definitely be cheaper and will still deliver whatever you need.

All the best, Phsy.
