How to Lay Synthetic Reed Fencing

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, and today we will guide you step-by-step on how to lay synthetic reed fencing. Together, we will learn some tricks and tips to ensure a correct and long-lasting installation of our reed fencing on an existing fence.

Necessary Equipment

For this type of work, we will need some essential tools:

  • Pliers
  • Specific fix-ties for reeds from Tenax
  • Tying wire
  • Electrician fix-ties
  • A simple cutter
Preparation of the Reed Fencing

The first thing to do is to unroll the reed roll and decide the unrolling direction. Place the beginning of the reed fencing on our fence, leaving a bit of extra, maybe one or two more reeds. It is very important not to tie the reed fencing to the first reed, as it might be unstable. Always start with a double reed for extra security.

Tying the Reed Fencing

To fix the reed fencing, pass a tying wire between one reed and the next and make a first tie in the correct position. Do not pull the wire too tight to avoid damaging the reed. Repeat these ties along the entire height of the beginning of the fence.

Once the reed fencing is temporarily fixed, we can unroll it along the entire fence and cut it at the end. Use a cutter to cut it in the middle of the reeds, always leaving one or two extra reeds for security.

Pulling and Tying the Reed Fencing

It is advisable to have two people for pulling the reed fencing: while one pulls, the other ties. Fold a reed and always leave a double to prevent it from coming loose. Make a tie by passing it halfway between one reed and the next, trying to position it correctly.

Types of Ties

We have different options for tying the reed fencing: with iron wire, traditional electrician fix-ties, or specific fix-ties for reeds. The specific fix-ties for reeds distribute the force evenly and are aesthetically pleasing. The ties should be made every 15-20 centimeters, at the top, in the middle, and at the bottom, to avoid the sail effect.


Once the work is finished, we need to cut the excess wire and fix-ties to clean the fence. Make sure that the ties are not too tight to avoid damaging the reed fencing.


The final result will be a well-stretched, clean, and tidy reed fencing. Remember to tie it approximately every 20 centimeters and to make three rows of ties for a height of one meter. If the reed fencing is 1.50 or 2 meters high, increase the number of rows of ties. Always pay attention to the sail effect.
