How to Redo/repair my privacy fence?

The fence is wood........A lot of it has fallen apart because it has rotted. I am on limited income so I bought a 6 foot roll of 12.5 gauge galvanized fence. I was going to try to use rebar......but everything requires a hole of some kind and I don't have the strength to do much of anything. Hurt myself and can't stand or get on knees....not much help is available. The City has ticketed me several times because the pickets are falling off. I have 100 feet of fence. I need to figure out how to make it stand up sturdy, and to keep my 2 companion dogs in and people out.....they came in and broke into my garage. Thank you.

    Wow! I'm so sorry to hear about the terrible time you are having! If you live in a city where they ticket you for things like this, there should be organizations also, that will assist persons in your situation. You might begin by calling your local Senior Citizens Center (I realize you may not be a senior citizen, but the same people might help you) your local DAV chapter and other groups, such as Rotary Clubs. If they don't help out, they can most likely steer you in the right direction to find assistance. Best wishes!

      Thank you!! I never think to ask for others for that kind of help. I actually thought maybe the City could give me some suggestions......but that didn't happen. I am a senior......not in my mind, unfortunately the rest of me doesn't agree. Thank you again.
