I put up rolls of willow fencing between my yard and the neighbors for more privacy. I have it tied onto the chain link fence that is there. I was wondering what kind of preservative I could spray on the fence to make it last longer against the winds and sun.

You can spray insecticide once a year on your willow fencing to prevent insect infestations.

Insecticide against wind and weather?

You can check out sealers...I don't know what's best, but there are wood sealers to paint on or spray on. those would protect against the weather.
