    You might have to check city ordinances of hoa rules about fence heights of structure codes. If you're using panels, you'll need to overlap a section of your chain link to keep the added sections stable.

    I hung it with zip ties.

    First you would have to install taller poles to attach the lattice to. Perhaps planting something tall along the fence would work better.

    Take the caps off some of the upright posts, then make your lattice extensive with posts extending down that will fit into those post holes. I would have one at least every 4'.

    Hello Heidi, hope this helps you out

    Step 1

    Place a lattice panel against the outside of the fence so that it is 8 feet tall. Lift the panel 3 inches from the ground while holding your tape measure against the ground for accuracy.

    Step 2

    Fasten the panel to the chain link by wrapping tie wire through the lattice and around the chain link. Tighten and snip the excess wire with your pliers.

    Step 3

    Hold the second panel next to the first. Maintain the 3 inch gap from the ground. Fasten the lattice to the chain link with tie wire.

    Step 4

    Continue placing lattice panels around the perimeter of the chain link fence. Cut the last piece as needed with your saw. Place the cut edge against the house when mounting the final panel.

    Step 5

    Strengthen the lattice work privacy trellis by adding tie wire. Connect the lattice to the fence with a loop of tie wire every 12 to 18 inches. Connect the lattice panels to each other with tie wire. Plants can be placed next to the new structure so that they will climb the trellis and add to the privacy fence.

    A wooden frame ould look much better and a frame would add stability.
