We had new close board fence panelling installed in our front garden about 3 years ago. It was already treated in a yellowy brown colour which has since faded to a greyish colour. I actually prefer the grey but wonder if the panels need treating to make them last longer. If so, how often do they need to be done? Would appreciate any advice as I am a complete novice when it comes to such matters. Thanks in advance.

It depends. Are the fence panels made from pressure treated wood, or dipped in preservative, or just sprayed? The youngest fence panels in my garden are 20 years old and they are never treated. The oldest are at least 26 years old and some may be older. The fenceposts get renewed because they are in the ground, but the panels (touching wood lol) are fine. Like you, I like the weathered look best.
