Sound Proofing Attempt for Property Next to Noisy Road

Postby Damo1176 » Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:54 pm

Our back garden runs parralel to a main road that can at times be very busy and noisy. Currently we have a 5.5 ft arros rail, featheredge fence with conifer trees that have few if any branches below fence top level. The noise insulation is poor. I have a few cheap ideas but not sure if anyone can offer advice.

1. Place a secondary fence, featheredge closeboard panels our side of the hedge.

2. Buy acoustic fencing panels at £90 each and fit as secondary fenc

3. Put in Closeboard panels but put in 2 together, leaving a gap between the two...then look at soundproof mats.

Any advice appreeciated, the traffic noise winds me up.
Thank you in advance.
