Using Cali Bamboo® fencing rolls to breathe new life into an old worn out block, wood or chain link fence.
Hi again! This is Laura for Cali Bamboo. Do you suffer from the block wall blues? Maybe you have a chain link or a wooden fence that needs a little help. Or perhaps you would just like a little privacy from your neighbors next door. Today we’re going to show you a quick and easy way to fix all those problems using Cali Bamboo’s rolled bamboo fencing. Cali Bamboo® rolled bamboo fencing comes in a variety of colors and diameters. What we have here today is natural, mahogany and black. For block walls, you’re going to need something for the bamboo fencing to attach to, so we’re going to be using masonry screws to attach this 2x4 to the block wall. So, now that we have our 2x4s attached on the top and the bottom, we are ready to roll out our bamboo fence. So when you’re attaching your bamboo fence you’re going to want to pre-drill a hole about every 12 inches. You can use regular exterior deck screws to attach your bamboo fence, or you can go to CaliBamboo.com and get our bamboo-colored screws. And just like that, you have been cured of the block wall blues. And with wood fences it’s even easier because you just have to unroll it, pre-drill and attach it right to the fence. And just like that the wood fence is no more. Now let’s move on to chain link. Attacking rolled bamboo fencing to a chain link fence is the easiest of all. You don’t even need any tools – just a few zip ties. And here’s a good trick for hiding the zip ties: Instead of attaching them to the bamboo poles, attach them to one of the four zinc wires that run the length of the panel. So that’s about it for today. We’ve gone over how to attach bamboo fencing to a cinder block wall, wood and chain link fence. For more information about bamboo fencing and other green products.
