to that wood fence, ide use staples.
if you were using it over chain link fence, you'd use tie wire.
really, if it's outside, that shit's gonna fall apart pretty quick, whichever way you attach it, don't you think?
Those nails that bend over and have a point on each end - like staples but nails, they'll last longer than the bamboo.
staples. but i fear you'll have to hammer each one in one by one. an automatic staple gun will most likely crack each piece of bamboo.
i'd use staples, and a shit tone of them. first windstorm and you might be having some big problems with your fence. you've got quite a vertical gap between cross beams and those brittle bamboo sticks will act as a sail and shatter right out.
good luck! the finished product (done right) should look pretty cool.
U NAILS. They are used for the green mesh on split rail. they would work.
I thought there was a punctuation question.
I have nothing to contribute.
Staples etc will not work long term.Just like you might with normal fence boards, sandwich it between two rails rails. Install a bottom rail to to rest the roll on, then fasten cross rails to match the existing, but onto the side nearest us (by picture). Fasten the cross rails to the post, not the panels. The bamboo will be snuggly fixed and you don't have to worry about cracking or breaking them with staples. Its will just cost a little more for the extra 1x4 or 2x4 rails.
at my house in SF it fell apart in 3 months due to wind and moisture, but at my moms in AZ, dry and hot, going on 2 years and still standing
Mine has been up for about a year in Wisconsin. I used wire to attach it to an old nasty chainlink fence.
double it up for durability. put 2 layers of the stuff.
