A: Yes you can. Use sharp scissors and cut between the wires. I used my dremel with a cutting blade.
A: You can use wire to attach. However, they are very thin. I bought two and I can still see through to my neighbors.
A: You can use cable ties
A: It will make it thru one storm.....maybe 6 storms....but it's reed....not very sturdy....it will discolor very quickly...and become flimsy, reading will separate.....the bamboo would have been far better if looking for longevity.....I was very disappointed in the reed fencing!!!!
A: The reed will deteriorate over a short time. I live in south Florida and my reed fence showed much wear and fading after 3 or 4 months, totally grey and decaying at one year. The reed looks great for a temporary situation or event but should not be considered as a permanent fence.
A: That depends on how the screen is anchored to the ground or attached to a fence and wha kind of storm. I have had mine go thorough 2 winters of storms with up to 40 mph winds, snow and ice. After 2 years it is pretty weathered out.
A: Depends on the storm. Have had mine up for years with rain and wind. Color will fade after a while
A: I would say yes, it will weather the rain just fine. The only protection I used on my reed fencing was linseed oil; applied with a wide dragging style brush. It took about three to four days to completely dry, but I like to think it added a few years to it's life. Plus, it really looked so nice! We live in a mobile home community and reed fencing is used almost everywhere I look; for privacy mostly. Some of my neighbors have said they believe the material has it's own 'immunity' to most bugs and pests. I like to think the linseed oil added a little something extra. Good luck!

A: 6 feet tall
A: Yes, it's thin enough to cut. I have a dremel so I was able to do a straight cut all the way across quickly.
A: I used some clear wood sealer on it to see if it protects it.

A: I have up two layers, as one did not block the view enough. Although it is fairly dense, the reeds are thin and small fingers might push through but it would be hard to do.
A: This will not work for that, it has to many openings for fingers to fit though.
A: Good Choice use zip ties,.lots of them.
A: No. The material is weak and easy to break. Only for esthetic use, not using for safe barrier.
A: I actually stapled mine on wall inside my store. I had some extra that I put againt my chain link fence for privacy. I zip tied it. It is taller. Nice as a privacy screen. It is natural reeds and will only last a few years. As for safety, it isn't that thick, so no they will be able to break or poke fingers through. It has a wire across holding them together. Out of sight out of mind. If they don't see your dogs maybe they wont think to play with them. so it may distract them. but for safety, I would do what I did. I have chain link fence then a flower bed which my dogs were tearing up. So I bought the roll out metal fence & green stakes. So, I have 2 fences with flower bed in between. now I added the reed for privacy to the outside.
A: Electrical fences work great for stopping kids.
A: Hi Kay, thank you for your interest in Backyard X-Scapes products, I will be glad to assist you with this matter. I wouldn't suggest Reed fencing to be used as a safety barrier. Reed fence is best used to cover an existing old fence, use it as decoration or to aid privacy. Please let me know if I can assist you with any other questions.
A: No, it can crack very easy and if its small kids they could still put their fingers between it.
A: Not really. This fence is made from bamboo reeds that are about 0.25 inches wide spaced about 0.25 inches apart, but they bend or break rather easily. This fencing is best used as a visual, not structural, element in your landscaping.
A: not really... you can easily push a small finger through
A: Just installed today but I’ve had a similar one that lasted a couple years before it started to show signs of damage. Nice “temporary” screen.
A: Stapled to the fence,it holds up fine.
A: Hi Mosel, thank you for your interest on Backyard X-Scapes products, I will be happy to assist you with this matter. Backyard X-Scapes Reed fence is made in China. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
A: I do not remember..
A: This item is manufactured in China.
A: I purchased two rolls of this item many years ago; unfortunately I do not remember seeing the country of origin on the label wrap. Reed fencing is made here domestically and brought in from overseas as well. That being said, my only advice is to spray the fencing with an eco friendly bug repellent/spray before use. I also brushed on a light coat of linseed oil.
