    Hi everyone

    Could anyone advise on the best way to secure a 6ft tall run of bamboo/willow screening to an existing 6ft tall concrete post and wooden panel fence?


    Regards

    Jamie

    we normally run roofing battens alont top middle and bottom horizontally. we then staple the screening to that and then screw another batten to top and bottom over the top of it. this sanwiches it in place and makes it very secure. also frames it quite nicely, amking it look rather more permanent and sturdy

    I also put batttens on mine, but not both sides


    if you look where the arrow is, its pointing at a vertical batten (to keep top and bottom battens same distance, i have no middle batten)

    Sorry picture is not up to scratch
