    Default Paint recommendaiton for rear of blackbutt screening fence?

    Hi all

    I have a new blackbutt screening fence which is 12m long, and 2100mm high using 40x40mm vertical blackbutt battens.
    This sits against the neighbours fence boundary ( northern boudary ).
    I have painted the facing edges (southern) with cutek extreme.

    I have the dilemma of what to paint the north facing blackbutt which sits above the neighbouring fence line
    Its high and will get exposed to northern sun so I want to protect it.

    Its not going to be easily accessible to paint - might have to use get a 2.4m high ladder to access or ask neighbour if I can access .
    So I dont aim to do regular painting of this section long term.

    So asking what would you recommend as a more long lasting protective coating for this area - ? Im thinking dulux weathershield or similar?

    Many thanks

    Why not just leave it unfinished? No need to recoat then.

    Thank you.
    I thought I need to put a surface protectant on to ensure the wood last as long as possible? would the sun exposure over time damage the wood that I would need to replace earlier?
    I would be more than happy not to do any further painting to this difficult to acccess/non visible side but wanting to make sure the fence last as long as possible
