      If lightning is going to hit the fence is going to hit it anyway the wood posts are grounded couple feet in the ground lightning would strike it just the same even without the corrugated wall

    I think it's awesome, but how did you anchor it to the ground?

      It would have a stringer running just above the ground, just like any other backyard fence. You just screw the tin panels to the stringer. There are also uprights running probably every 3 feet or so, to screw the edges of the panel to.

    Will this rust overtime??

      Great question. No it has not rusted. Here is the info from the manufacturer of the product we used.

      The galvanized finish will stand up to all kinds of weather and can be painted or aged for a variety of interesting visual effects. Corrugated panels are easily cut with shears and being light weight makes them easy to use and transport.

      • Galvanized steel is a low-maintenance product that is known for durability.
