Project Overview

Create some privacy or hide an ugly fence – whatever your reason, bamboo screening is an environmentally friendly choice. Available in a variety of styles, you can choose the strength and look to suit your requirements. When installing, make sure the bamboo is not touching the ground as it may cause the bamboo to rot.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Install screw eyes to hang fence
2 Run wire through the screw eyes and tie off
3 Attach the bamboo screen to the fence
4 Attach multiple bamboo sheets
  • Step 1. Install screw eyes to hang fence

    To hang bamboo fencing off a wall, you’ll need to install screw eyes that the wire will run through. Fix three screw eyes in each row at the same height as the rails of your fence for support. Drill a pilot hole to help you screw in the screw eyes. Make sure the screw eyes are facing vertically when they’re screwed in so the wire feeds through easily. You’ll also have to decide how many rows of screw eyes you’ll need for your fence – the minimum being a row at the start, middle and end of fence.
  • Step 2. Run wire through the screw eyes and tie off

    With someone to give you a hand, run a length of wire through the screw eyes. Cut the wire to length with an extra 100mm extra so you can easily tie the wire off. Feed the wire through the screw eyes. Stretch out the wire to remove kinks before you firmly tie off the ends. 
  • Step 3. Attach the bamboo screen to the fence

    Roll out the bamboo screen along the wall. Using a crimping tool and netting clips, clamp the clips along the wire on the fence at 300-400mm gaps. 

  • Step 4. Attach multiple bamboo sheets

    If using multiple bamboo sheets, push them up close and crimp them together. Then continue to attach the clips along the line. Use tin snips to cut off any overhang at the end, leaving an extra inch.
