How can I turn a vinyl picket fence into a vinyl privacy fence?

by Pamela
We have a vinyl picket fence, 4 ft x 8 ft sections. We want to make this a "privacy fence" so our small dogs can't get through it. Any thoughts on how to do this? Thanks for your time.

    I think if you could get some extra pickets and put them behind or in front of the other ones, but offset so they fill in the holes, you'd have an attractive fence that the dogs couldn't get through... Just a thought...

    I pinned this idea about using pallets to cover a chain link fence I thought was pretty cool. I pinned it to one of my boards about fences

    I went to a resale store bought old broken latices and finished cutting them up in strips for the fence
  • Here is another idea (and it is not privacy) but you could use inexpensive wire fence, chicken wire, hardware wire, or even netting and neatly tack it on the inside of the fence to keep the dogs in. I use wire fencing that is about 2 1/2' tall to keep animals out (and my furbabies in) which is hidden amongst the plants and shrubs. This is just a thought and one that would be easy and inexpensive to do. good luck

    I purchased short (12" tall) vinyl garden edging that looked like a decorative picket fencing. I just place it into the ground nest to the original fence and wired it. Once they figured out they could squeeze thru they were ok with it.

    I don't really know how to put the link in. The only choices I get for an invite is Yahoo, Google, Facebook its Deborah Yeary on Pinterest Board Fencing Ideas

    The home and garden stores sell rolls ( 4'x 50') of what looks like snow fence in green mesh we used it to keep our dog in the yard.
