How to Attach Mesh to a Wall

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop and today we will show you how to attach mesh to a wall using simple rods. First of all, let's briefly analyze the technical characteristics of these rods. I have two types in hand: a galvanized one with a diameter of 9 mm and a galvanized and plastic-coated green one, available in diameters of 8 or 9 mm depending on the height. These rods are commercially available in five standard heights: approximately 1, 1.20, 1.50, 1.82 meters.

The Problem: Attaching Mesh to a Wall

It often happens that fences end up on a wall, such as in the case of a small garden in a terraced house where mesh separates two gardens. The most immediate solution that comes to mind is to place a post near the wall with a diagonal brace arm to attach the mesh and stretch it. However, this implies a high cost, complex work, and an aesthetically unpleasing result.

The Solution: Using Rods

A more elegant, economical, and faster alternative is to use an iron rod. How is it done? It's simple: we can use a hook anchor (or a wood or iron screw, depending on the wall material) to fix the rod to the wall. We position 1, 2, 3 or 4 anchors based on the height of the fence and then insert the rod into these anchors, creating a spacer of 2-3 cm. At this point, we can cut the mesh to the right length and tie it to the rod. The tension of the mesh will be distributed along the entire rod, achieving a more pleasing result compared to using a post with a brace arm.

Use in Sports Posts

Another interesting use for rods is in sports or round posts. Instead of bringing the mesh directly to the post, we can use a shackle to create a loop in the post. We insert the shackle into the post's eyelet, screw it in, and create a point to insert the rod. This method can be used for the first post of the fence or for a corner post, allowing us to tie all the mesh to the rod instead of the post. Again, the result will be more elegant.


In conclusion, we have seen how simple iron rods can be used to attach mesh to a wall in an elegant and functional way. At Fenceshop, we are always looking for practical and innovative solutions, developed over our years of experience as installers.
