Info that will be good to know before or after you buys this stuff.... 1) it WILL turn grey in one year, even if you soak it in Thompson's waterseal like I did the day it installed
2) 1 layer of this makes it about 50% see through, 2 layers 7% see through and 3 layers makes it 1% see through.
3) start with 2 layers and after a year add a 3rd layer to freshen up the look and make it even less see through
4) it can be painted with deck paint. I did a test spot area and 6 mo. later its not fading or chipping so I'll paint it when the 3rd layer I just put on turns grey
5) buy a roll of 18g. galvanized wire and cut it into a lot of 6" pieces. Hook through fence and twist shut to attach to a chain link fence. then bend the ends and tuck them back in. I used zipties at first but many of them broke with the wind so when I added the 3rd layer I went with the wire.
6) if you dont want to go on your neighbors property or ask them if you can, you can still put this up. Just hook wire through fence and back to you every 3' and put one wire at the top of the fence and another mid way down. Just unroll it as you attach on your side
7) i put mine on a 3' fence and its 6' reed fencing but if you want a little extra height ( a few extra inches ) just put a folded up chair or chaise lounge under it as you make your way down the fence and attach it. There will be a little 3' space at the bottom but as the grass grows that will fill in with grass and you can't really see anything through the fence that low anyway.
8) no point in buying a single roll of this since you need 2-3 layers anyway. 4 pack is a better deal.
im attaching a pic of the fence after a year and the new layer of fence I just put on, on the right...
Pros: Multi Use, Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Stylish, Light Weight
Cons: turns grey after a year

Before ( 2 layers, 1 yr old ) After 3 layers ( 1/2 day old on 3rd layer )
A single ply of this will NOT suffice. I bought the box to layer a 4' chainlink fence on both sides to cover an open spot that used to be covered with a butterfly bush that was removed. I am a little leery as to how long it will last, and it is feels relatively brittle with how thin the reeds are. The day after installation it stood up to 60 mph wind and storms without a problem. Double ply is the only way to go. I anchored every 2' directly to the tension bar. It took me about 5 minutes to hook it up to the fence using chain link hooks. I used 2 panels for the section, I have a lot left. I will run a single ply along the remainder of the fence where I already have tree coverage to complete the look.
Pros: Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Great Value, Light Weight
This fencing is exactly what I needed to inexpensively cover our basement ceiling. I gave it 4 stars only because one of the rolls was only 15' long, which makes a big difference when you're going from rafter to rafter. Now the basement looks like a tiki hut (or Bikini Bottom, depending on your kids' perspective). All four rolls came individually wrapped but together in one big box. I'm wondering what other fun projects I can use it for!
Took me 60 min to install on my own. Would have been easier with help and access to the other side of the fence but no help and didnt want to bug the neighbors to go on their property. I kept the product role folded in half for a double layer. I unrolled it from the way it came and rolled it in the other direction. I kept unrolling it as I went so I could reach around the role to the other side of the fence for the zipties. I installed it on a 3' chin link fence but started it about 2" off the ground by placing two folded up lawn chairs under it as I went down the fence. The grass will cover the gap and this will give me 2" more of privacy on top. I used about 150 6" clear zip ties at the top of the chainlink fence and again half way down it, about 1' apart all the way down. I finished off with spraying it all with thompson's water seal. i got it for privacy since from my one side yard you can see a pedestrian bridge that goes over the water behind my house and lots of people go over it all day. You def want two layers of this! If you have help and access to both sides of the fence, even 3 layers would be amazing. i used two.
Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, Light Weight, Seals Well
Used to screen off an area of my pool deck. Looks real good but time will tell if it will stand up to the Texas heat (sun) and wind. 4 x 16ft lengths in the box were actually 2 x 14'-7", 1 x 15'-6" and 1 x 16'. The second box of 4 I bought were closer to the 16ft. So, be aware if you need them to be exactly 16ft - aim for 15ft and you'll be good.
The height is perfect for my yard, and gives a really nice natural atmosphere. I just used wire to lash this to the standard aluminum fencing that was already there, and it changed the whole feel. You just really want to affix it tightly, and at 3 points (top, middle, bottom) at each stage (I did it about every 1 yard down the whole fence ). Hopefully that'll keep it standing straight / not sagging for a long time.
I knew when I purchased the reed it wasn't going to be for fencing. Our yurt ceiling was plain and I wanted to add some pizzazz and warmth, so I put the reed under the rafters and attached it with faux sinew to the end rafters . It is light and easy to work with and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about their ceilings in a new way.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Stylish, Light Weight

Review 10 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
After a year it has turned greyish. I live in MIami. I used thompson's water seal on it when I first put it up. I have 2 choices. I can paint it with outdoor deck type paint/stain or, I can put another layer of this fence up. I tried putting a little of this kind of paint on some hidden test spots that get full sun and rain and 3 mo. later it has adhered and not chipped even though I heard this type of fence can't be painted. Rather than paint it though I'm going to put a 3rd layer of this fence on and instead of zip ties ( several have snapped ) I'm using galvanized ( rust resistant ) wire. I can just hook it through and back, then twist and tuck the end so I wont have to go on the neighbors property. A 3rd layer will look good for awhile and make the fence not at all see through. Right now 2 layers is about 85% " non-see through " which is good enough. You would really have to try hard to see through it. When it turns grey again down the road I'll paint it. Still very happy with the stuff!

Review 11 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
The 4-pack of 6 x 16' rolls was a great purchase for me. It provided the most screening for my money, as compared to other screening options. It does not provide opaque screening, but establishes enough separation for my needs. It provides light shade, which should be appropriate for my gardening plans in that area of the yard. I attached it to stakes about 4' apart and will probably add more stakes in between, because the wind has caused the product to lean a bit in places. With the proper structural support, I think the product will be sufficiently reliable. The rolls were lightweight and easy for me to carry and install by myself, which was great.
Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Economical, Light Weight
Cons: needs plenty of support to stay upright.

Review 15 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
We bought this fencing to cover our neighbor's old wood fence that they wouldn't replace. Using a staple gun and galvanized staples, this went up easily and you don't really see the staples. It covered all the mismatched sections and filled in areas perfectly. I read the other reviews where some complained about the thinness of the material, but that was not an issue because the backing is more or less solid. You cannot see through the reed to the unsightly boarding below it. Now we have a finished look to our yard that didn't require cooperation from the neighbors, or the cost of replacing a fence that is not on our property. Plus, this was the best cost for this product that I could find anywhere either in stores or on line.

Review 16 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
This is listed as 6' x 16'. I needed to cover a 15' area. The actual length was 13-14', so was completely inadequate. The reeds were very thin, and many were broken. The mats were folded, not rolled, so laying them out was difficult, and led to more damage. I will be returning these to a local store.
Cons: wrong size, poor quality, poorly packed

Review 19 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
We bought this to cover the unsightly chain link fence that is between our house and the neighbor's. Since they have moved out a jungle is growing back there. That, and it is just ugly and affords no privacy. At least this fence gives us some personal privacy - sorta like window sheers. We talked about if we want more privacy then we would go back with a 2nd layer on top of what we have. We are still in the middle of our project - life & time does rule! But it is easy to do for 1 or 2 people. Before we put up the panels, we stringed one panel up between empty fence poles so that I could "paint" the panel with weather sealant. A little goes a long way. Today we had our first hard rain so we will inspect the panels, but I assume they will be just fine. Before we began our fence, we bought some 1x2's and cut them a smidgen shorter than the panel, and we attached them to the chain link fence to give stability to the top of the panels so they would not flap around. We placed the 1x2''s about every 3 ft, starting at the end, and working one panel at a time. We used the longer ties to attach the panel to the chain link fence. We learned the short ones don't do it. The panels are light weight and easy to unroll and work with -no problems. What I liked about this fence idea was that my husband was easy to convince, and he actually did one day mostly all by himself without any incidence or complaining! THAT'S A GOOD DAY! So that proves it must be easy to work with! :-)
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Stylish, Good Shape, Great Value, Economical, Light Weight

Review 20 for 6 ft. x 16 ft. Reed Fencing (4-Pack)
The reed fencing looks a lot better than my old fence. I put it up with a stable gun and some nails. I don't think I will get many years out of it since it is thin but overall for the price, it is fine. My neighbor used it on her fence a couple of years ago and when it started looking a little rough she flipped it over to the other side, so I will probably do the same thing. I was able to get 16 feet out of each panel, so one case just about covered the entire length of the back yard.
