I'm using this as a decoration piece, but I believe the measurements to be too long for the space it will cover. Can this be easily cut to fit the desired area?

Answer: 
Yes, Easily with pair of wire cutters and or metal shears (aviation snips), if cutting through the wires.
If just the reeds, a box cutter or household scissors will easily cut the reeds.
I suppose you could even use a circular saw, it could be awkward.

Yes things do turn old and gray and the weather after a while, I mean it's just bamboo it's not redwood fencing LOL. But I like the older look of mine, it actually seems to blend more. To answer your other question you could just easily zip tied it or you some wire or something to just attach the fencing to the post.

I use it as a gate with turnbuckles and snap hooks. So as it stretches I can tighten it up.
Good cheap choice for a few years of service, for a more permanent solution I would use the vinyl lattice privacy panels or cement board 4x8 sheets with bats (trim) over the joints both cost about the same.
The Cement board, which has several patterns including both horizontal or vertical siding T-111 appearance I would prime front and back then paint, be sure to due the edges after cutting. This will last 20 or more years, paint holds really well.
If you go cement board get the special cutting tool, too much time and dust with saws and get the air nailer that shoots the special nails, I hear a roofing nailer works OK. This will provide privacy and noise reduction. I painted both sides a good neighbor fence.
So I use all three of these at my home, cement board for privacy and noise reduction, more permanent.
Privacy Vinyl lattice for less privacy and no reduction in noise still some what permanent.
Finally for minimal privacy and maximum savings for short 2-4 years I use the reed screens.
The more durable products are cheaper over the long run, they will need little or no maintainence.
The reed is very much cheap for the short term and biodegrades quickly.sssss

Also, they do fade after a couple of seasons, depending on how harsh the weather may be where you live. As far as attaching to your posts, you would probably have to staple them, but honestly, I would not recommend it because they are so lightweight and can break without enough support. One more thing to note....they are fairly see through, so if your looking for privacy, this will not work. On a positive note, they are affordable and easy to work with, so I do not regret my purchase that I used to surround my pool area, even though they only lasted a couple of seasons.... Read Less

My advice is do not install these in the weather. I installed about 20 panels onto the chain link fence around my pool. It took about 3 months for the wires that hold them together to deteriorate and fall apart. I ended up throwing it all away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 264 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Looking Fence The fence is light weight yet durable. Looks great. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Functionality on a dime! I purchased four of these and need to get probably six more in order to get the entire area. Let me start out by saying we simply needed to heighten our fence to keep the dog from jumping it. Period. Fences are EXPENSIVE. I kept trying to figure out a way to achieve the end goal without going into debt. We tried adding critter wire, etc... Nothing really was working to keep the dog from figuring a way around or through it. Finally I stumble upon this reed stuff after several google idea sessions. For the price, I was willing to take the risk and try it out. I was able to install this by myself, though having a second person makes it go a little faster. You unpack the roll from the plastic, then sit it up against the fence. I secured the start with 3 cable ties to the top, middle and close to the ground as I could get, attaching to the fence. I made sure that each tie was going through at least 2 sections of "wire" on the fence (i have chain link--and I mean that I would have the cable tie go into a hole, loop over the part that meets another loop together in the fence, then come back through the reed fence), and about 4 reeds when coming back through. I secured each tie as tight as possible without breaking anything. You want to make sure there's not a whole lot of room for the reed fence to shift around, mainly because it's not really built for a lot of pressure. I also made sure that the bottom of the reed fence was flush against the ground at each point. I recommend securing one side, then unrolling the entire roll against the fence and securing the other side with just ONE TIE on the top (in case you need to make adjustments after getting the rest done). This will keep it from falling over while you work. I put two ties every two feet, one on the top, one close to the bottom. This part is the only part you'll want a second person for, because weaving the tie back toward you is a little tricky without someone to direct and feed it back. I did two of these myself and kept having to shove my fingers through the reeds to grab the tie and pull it back through-- annoyance level probably equal to tying water balloons; it's fine until you're about ten in. haha. Anyway, so you wanna make sure that as you go, you're checking to see that the reed in that section is flush with the ground. The reeds will shift up and down pretty easily, so if you've secured it already and the tie isn't right on the wires that hold the reeds together, you can adjust them with some hand tapping. Having the fence flush to the ground assists it from tipping or shifting much. Also it'll help it to be flush against the fence, so it's a win-win. You pull it taught each time you go to adjust before tying-- it's sturdy--you can pull on it pretty well without hurting it. Pull it tight enough that it's sitting flush and not wavy (if you want it to look nice, that is). If your reeds are leaning to the direction you're pulling, you need to pick it up off of the ground and pull from the bottom wired section until it's straight, and tie it there first once it's on the ground again. I do recommend pulling via the wired areas and not just the reeds themselves. I only ever did it that way just out of common sense and caution. Once you get to the end, you'll know if you'll need to adjust at all. If so, cut your one tie and pull the reed fencing to where you want it and re-secure. I did a couple of sections at a time and it didn't take more than maybe 45 minutes. Less once I had the hang of it and it probably took 10 minutes with a helping hand for the weaving. I've had these four up for at least a month now (I have no concept of time lately). They're holding up to the weather. We've had severe winds, severe thunderstorms and flooding, etc. Granted the flooding isn't happening in my yard or anything, but the amount of rain is the point. I don't see any sign of rotting or molding from the temperature or humidity. I have chickens, ducks, cats and dogs, and they all scratch and peck, etc, at the fence at times. There is no structural damage I can see. It's still standing as strong as day one. An aggressive or determined dog would probably figure out how to chew his way through this fence but still have no luck escaping since there is chain link behind it... But my dog was simply jumping the 4ft fence I had. This added the height that stopped her. My cucumbers have decided to take over one section of this reed-- they absolutely adore it. They look really nice on it, actually. So even if you just need something around your garden area, this is a great deal and a nice look. The slight separation in the reeds allows the wind to get through instead of pushing the fence over--so it makes up for its lack of thick, sturdy material in that aspect. The PRIVACY level is that of a shower curtain. You can still see movement, silhouettes on the other side. This wasn't my reason for getting the fence though, but I know there were some people who had concerns about it not really "hiding" them. Unless you plan on some skinny dipping or topless tanning in your yard, I really would consider this to be adequate for simply separating your daily activities from the outside world's un-obscured view. I honestly don't care who sees what I do outside. Nothing to hide, but also not very interesting, so they'd have to be pretty darn bored to want to watch me-tv haha. All in all, I highly recommend this fencing, even if you're really not on a budget and just need a little something to complete the feel of your fenced in areas. If you can afford a bit more, I recommend getting enough to do both sides of the fence. Why? Well because you can still see the chain link fence on the OTHER side, and though it's not totally horribly unsightly, if you're a at all OCD (and I am extremely) the fact that it doesn't match might drive you nuts eventually. ALSO it would more than likely add to the overall strength of the reed fencing itself, and therefore the lifetime of it. This photo is through my bedroom window at the garden area. You can see my ducks in the corner! lol. The area itself is a work in progress (which is why it looks a mess), but as you can see, the fencing looks really nice. I still have to purchase more of this to complete the area you see there without it. Which reminds me, when you're going over an entrance gate, you do the same as you did with everything else, except when you're done, you'll want to make certain to secure the reed to the posts on either side of the swinging gate, secure the reeds to the part of the gate that will be opening, then cut the wire holding the reeds together from bottom to top in a straight line-- it'll be between your post securing and the securing on the swinging gate piece-- and you'll be cutting in between just two reeds all the way up. Once you have completed that, you'll see that the door will swing open just fine, and not bunch up since you secured it in the right areas. Note: when placing the reed fencing over your opening gate area, be sure NOT to put the reed flush against the ground. If you do, either tap the reeds upward, or cut the reeds about an inch off the bottom. This will allow for your gate to open and close without resistance and without damaging the fence over time. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to install on our backyard chain-link fence. We used thin wires to start, fixing the reed fencing in place, and then switched to a a few strategically placed thicker wires for permanency. From a distance, we can see through fence, but people standing close to it from the outside will not be able to easily see through it into our backyard. October 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect touch for my palapa I made a gazebo with a sattilite dish years ago. I covered it with a palm frond umbrella cover to make a palapa, but needed something to finish the lower part. I cut this product in half lengthwise and stapled it up. Work perfectly. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quick and easy with Instant Results I now have three of these reed screens covering a length of very old, unsightly fence that we can't afford to replace. One of the screens has survived three summers and two Canadian winters, and is still holding up well. Using a little water sealer is a good protective measure, and keeps the reeds looking quite nice. I recommend using this product as a quick, easy way to brighten a dull spot in your yard, and give it a nice exotic feel. September 6, 2016
