How to Install a Reed Fence

Posted by on Apr 23, 2013 in backyard, garden, garden art, Popular Posts | 12 comments

There are a few things that I don’t like to admit about myself. . .

 #1 –  I don’t have enough discipline to exercise on my own.

(That is why I have to pay a personal trainer.)

#2  – I swing by Sonic most mornings for a large sweet tea.

(Another reason I have a personal trainer.)

#3  – I am stubborn.

Stubborn with a capital S-T-U-B-B-O-R-N.

On occasion that trait comes in handy.

Like when I decide I would like a new little garden area in my backyard.

And, create just the little area that I had in my mind.

Whew. . .

I am exhausted.

I think I could use a large sweet tea.

(Please don’t tell my trainer.)

Life to the full!

  1. I LOVE your old fence—did you put that one in yourself too? I want something like that (split rail with wiring) around our orchard/garden area to keep the horses out. Let me know how you got that one to look so great.

  2. You have inspired me once again. I’d love to find some of that reed fence to put across our back fence between our neighbor, and on the north side of our back yard. Your yard is so pretty. Was it hard to put the reed fence up by yourself? I forgot how green everything is there. Was a little hard when we moved here as it was kinda blah after KY.
    Altho the climate was hard on me in KY I often wish we’d stayed in kY. It was much less expensive to live there and still miss our place. I hope the gal that bought it is happy there. Happy days gal

  3. cute! We’ve looked at that reed fencing before but decided to go with massive amounts of bamboo shoots! I hopefully, in a couple of years, will have a forest! – Karen

  6. I resemble those statements about 1.2. and especially #3. Love your blog.

  7. I am so glad that I was your post. My husband and I just bought this fence for a space in our pond area. I had no idea how we were going to put it up. Thanks so much for sharing your idea.

  8. I love reed fencing! We actually used it on the top of our pergola to all a little more shade! This year we are planning to add metal to the top not really for shade but to protect the outdoor fans and furniture. The reed fencing is going to stay in place though! I love the way it looks through the rafters! Your fence looks great!

  9. Such a great privacy screen. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
