    If you have a sewing machine, get some cheap tarpaulins from the dollar store, Cut large circles, based on the diameter of your rolls plus a bit over for seams and a bit of 'give. Attach them to one end only of another tarp, sewing round the top a couple of times for extra strength. Only sew about 5-6 inches down the side, from the top only -use cord or twine to join sides when you've covered the rolls. If you prefer to stand them upright, one (top) circle will do. If you lie them down you'l need one at each end. Make a mini-pyramid of them and fasten with cord/twine. When they're concealed neatly, if you won't be using them for some time you can grow a creeper over them, or make a seat, or whatever you choose.

    roll them up as tight as you can and secure with rope. Hang them on the outside and back of shed or garage to hide them from view. Or from the ceiling in the garage.

    if you hang them from the ceiling inside the garage/shed. use rope either side (so they are horizontal) and then you can store long pieces of wood or pipes etc. from one to the other.

    Hi Douglas: What I've done, after rolling the fencing up as tight as I could and rolling it over a couple lengths of rope at each end, and riding it like a horse, was to pull the rope up over the fencing and tying it very tight. And yes, I jumped off like I just roped a calf :) It's way better if you have help, but if you don't, ride 'em cowboy! :) Well, it works :)
