    Hi - would it be possible to take a log with you to a diy store? Or get someone to do that for you? I'm sure there are loads of browns available if that's what you're wanting.

    Alternatively, would you consider a contrasting colour instead? Black looks terrific behind plants etc if they're a different colour. It really depends on the effect you want to achieve   image

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin

    I am probably asking a silly question but why do you have to colour your fence? Is there something you are trying to fit in with?

    Are all the logs naturally different colours?  Actually that sounds nice.  Are they unprotected?  You don't have to change the colour of a log fence when you protect it.

    You could ask for a clear preservative, or do as FairyGirl says (Cuprinol Garden Shades in Urban Slate is really nice!) I don't think it's really worth trying to match the paint to the wood exactly. It'll just look like it's painted brown.
