It depends on what you will mount it to; but I dread asking a question myself in return getting more questions and not getting any answers. So, I will try to break down each application with a particular answer. MOUNTING on a WOODDEN FENCE/WALL: (A) You can easily use a staple gun (Home Depot sells an inexpensive Ryobi Staple Gun for $49) and it will save you a lot of time and grief, especially trying to mount yourself. (B) You can basically use a Hammer and what I call U-Nails (HD identifies as: Grip-Rite 3/4" Hot-Dip Galvanized Staples, 1 LB @ $5), or (C) if you have some Roofing Nails, this can work as well and easier to hammer in compared to the U-Nails. Just hammer the roofing nails into the wood at an angle to hold up the reed fence. Also, a little trick; use a hair comb (that's right) to hold your nails in place while you hammer in, especially if you are installing yourself. MOUNTING on a CHAINLINK/WIRE FENCE: (D) You can easily tie with (HD brand: ToolPro 18-gauge Hanger Wire, 300 FT @ $10) OR (E) Use Plastic Electrical Zip-Ties (can purchase various colors at Home Depot in their Electrical Dept), or purchase some Zip Ties at the Dollar Store, but their zip ties seem to not have much of a range of selections of color or quality in compared to HD, but will work), OR (F) what "I PREFER" buying a Viagrow Spool Cut-to-Size Coated Vine Ties (3-Pack, 164 FT Spools @ $12 - located in the HD-Nursery); OR (G) do what our grandparents did, Re-Use old Bread Ties, or re-use old 14-gauge copper plastic coated wiring (typically used for installing irrigation valves), will work as well. I hope that these answers get you in the right direction and save you time and money. Good Luck!!
I just rolled it out and put it up.
You can stain, paint, or spray paint; but the application should be "sprayed on" instead of "brushed" on.
I have mine tied to a chain link fence, it gas held up so far.
This is a intended to be used outdoors. It works fine as a yard barrier (fence) . Can water get through it if you use it as a ceiling on a structure? Absolutely!
Yes. On the chain link fence I attached with wire.
Approximately 10 inches. It's also quite flexible and probably can be manipulated a bit more for a snug fit.
Yes it can be cut. A pair of hedge clippers worked best.
I used twistie ties as it is very lightweight and the ties are thin enough to fit through screen holes without much damage.
