A: That would probably work using zip ties, easy to put them on and snip when your done. I just don’t know how well the reed fencing would hold up over a season of sun. You would probably be lucky to get one season out of them.
A: It comes rolled up, so it would be easy to manipulate. Don't plan on cutting it because it is wired together. Would be perfect for a sun screen, tho.
A: Not hard at all however this item is not very strong in a horizontal placement. You may need a support structure to keep it from sagging.
A: We stapled it! Easy ! It fades pretty quickly.
A: I used it for privacy with a 6 ft chain link fence, I used zip tie's and cut off the ends to hold it in place. It will work for you just need a way to adhere it.
A: No, it is made from a tree. It's not going to be fire resistant in the same way a house made from wood could burn down.
A: No, it is not fire-resistant.
A: They are 6’ high reeds attached to each other to make a 16’ Long mat. There are 4 points on each that connect them to the next so you could cut them in half and get your 3’ high fence.
A: As in the title this is reed fencing. As you describe I cut it in half and use a 3 foot fence. Every 3-4 years I add a new layer on top of the old. The more layers the longer they seem to last. I used conduit for posts and horizontal wire to act as a foundation to attach the fence to.
A: It says Reed Fencing and it is Reed Fencing. As far as I remember they are held together with wire at the top, bottom and in the middle. So when you cut them in half one part will fall apart. It's better to just double it. The material is thin so you can easily fold it in half. And it's a bit sturdier this way. We exchanged the reed with bamboo after approx a year of use outside.
A: We've moved but as I recall it is reed, not bamboi.
A: It’s reed and it does last long, at least here in New Jersey. I had mine for 1 1/2 years and had to take down because it started to fall apart in a bunch of places.
A: The fence is made entirely out of Reed

A: No. needs to be stapled or tied on
A: Needs to be secured in some manner.
A: Reed panels will need to be applied to supports and will not stand alone.
A: Yes, each piece in the 4 pack measures 6 ft. H x 16 ft.
A: There are 4 16’ sections for a total of 64’.
A: Hi Brooke, thank you for your interest in Backyard X-Scapes products, I will be glad to assist you with this question. This package comes with 4 pieces of 6 ft. tall x 16 ft. wide Bamboo Coffee Reed fencing. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
A: I live in Maine so termites are not an issue. Otherwise, I am not aware of it attracting insects. Although, I am using it inside.
A: I did not see or notice any one of those pests. I used this reed as privacy screening for chain-linked fencing, which it provided.
A: I have not had a problem with any bugs
A: Hi, thank you for your interest in Backyard X-Scapes products, I will be glad to assist you with this matter. Reed fencing is a natural product and shouldn't attract termites, carpenter ants or bugs but if it is a concern at the location you will install the fence, I suggest spraying the fence. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
A: Termites cannot eat it. I don't think there is any reason to believe it will attract other ants or bugs. I don't think the reed is edible to anything except panda bears. So you might want to make sure your property is properly secured to keep out pandas.
A: I have not seen any bugs around it on my third year of having it up.
A: It's not fire treated
A: Not anymore than any thing else
A: Hi, Thank you for your interest in Backyard X-Scapes products. The Bamboo Coffee Reed Fencing is not fire rated. Please let me know if I can assist you with any other question.
A: We’ve had the fence for 3 years (rolled up for winter) and never put anything down. Never had any issues besides a little mold but the power washer got rid if it. If you’re able to put it up off the floor I would.
A: Having it elevated would help,i have mine on the pool deck which is concrete.a little water does settle on the bottom due to rain an run off from splashing pool water but no rotting in over a year.Hope this helps!
A: Hi, thank you for your question, I will be glad to assist you with this matter. We suggest to install the Reed Fence few inches above the ground so it prevents the bottom of the fencing to rotten. You can use zip-ties or staples to install the Reed fencing. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
A: Mine sits on a low block wall. Gets wet but not in any standing water. Have had it up 2-3 years, still in great shape. An inch should be fine.
A: Mike, Depending on where you place the fencing and exposure to the elements will determine how much protection is needed. I sprayed my reed fencing with linseed oil, but I also have it up off the ground surrounding my porch. It does get wet from rain, but it has held up for the seven plus years it's been there. I see reed fencing used extensively here in our mobile home park in gardens, as privacy barriers and to cover unsightly machinery, such as cooler and air conditioners. Some of the people even dig it down into the ground for stability and place staking at desired intervals. From what I've seen, the fencing has held up well. I would say that placing pavers, brick or stone underneath would be a great idea to prolong it's life. Be aware that winds can cause the reed fencing to move and may splinter the bottom sections. Hope these ideas help you in your project.
A: I attached it to an existing chain link fence for privacy and decoration. I did place it a little off the ground, because I live in Portland and it rains often. The fence did last longer then I anticipated!
A: I did not put anything at the bottom of the fencing and it is attached close to the ground. It has been up for a couple of years with no problems
A: We put it one inch from the ground.
A: Yes, I space my fencing about 1/2-1" above the ground. Yet even with snow higher than that I did not experience rotting of the bottom.
A: zip ties
A: I used Cable ties
A: Fine wire
A: It depends on the look you're going for. You could use a matching color twine if you want to make it seamless and keep it cheap. If you're looking for something more fun, you could use leather ties from a craft store and even get them in a color to match some other feature of your space. For pure strength and longevity, you could always just use wire too.

A: Hi JP, thank you for your question, I will be happy to assist you with this matter. This item comes with 4 pieces of 6 ft. high x 16 ft. long Reed fencing panel. Please let me know if you have any other question.
A: Yes 4 individual fences.
A: Yes, this pack comes with 4 panels, each 6ft x 16ft.
A: Yes. It consists of four pieces, each 16’ long.
A: Yes there are 4 rolls great product
A: Each piece is 16 feet long. The "4-pack" covers 64 feet in total. Just a note: the 16 feet is an approximation - the 4-pack I received had one piece which was slightly under 16 feet, one which was slightly over 16 feet and two which were right on.
A: Yes at least it was that way for me.
A: Yes but some rolls are not quite 16 ft!
A: Yes, 4 sections at 16 feet each.
