Reed Fencing Covers Ugly Chain Link
I’ve been trying to find something affordable to cover the ugly chain link fence along the south side of my yard for over four years now.
So, I was pleasantly surprised to find 6′ x 15′ rolls of reed fencing for $22 each at Lowes. I didn’t know such a thing existed!
I picked up five rolls and started covering the fence the VERY SAME DAY.
The front yard after picture is above. I don’t have any before pictures because I hated the fence so much I never took pictures of the flower beds.
The back yard ‘in progress’ picture is below – you can see the weeds growing from the neighbor’s side of the fence. As you can see, I still need to do some trimming but it already looks 100 percent better.
Anyone can do this little project in a couple hours. All you need are the rolls of the reed fencing and some black zip ties.
Update 4/29/2012: Our fencing lasted almost 3 years in our wet Seattle weather. I just ordered some bamboo fencing (at $60 for a 4′ h x 8′ w roll) to replace the reed fencing — in hopes that it’ll last a little longer. This option is a little more expensive.
