    I have about 12m of this style fence to paint and it looks as though it will be painful! Don't really want to use a sprayer due to overspray risk...

    Any tips/advice?

    With a brush. When I did a similar fence I had 2 people 1 either side.

    When we did similar we found it quicker working as a pair - one with a large brush for the flat sections and one with a smaller brush for the awkward bits. Thus the paint which the large brush left at each obstacle could be 'used' by the small brush around said obstacle. Our large brush was a masonary paint brush, but it's well used and the bristles well won down.

    Spray, dust sheet takes care of any overspray and does not damage plants . 1 Hours work .
    Would not use paint prefer decking oil .
