We built a stunning 6ft-tall privacy fence in our backyard in one day – but we made a key item ourselves to save money

A handyman filmed himself putting up a privacy fence without costing an arm and a leg.

Andrew (@andrewslawnfence) decided to take up the challenge and build a privacy fence.

The video shows him installing a six-foot high privacy fence in his backyard in less than a day.

The TikToker is known for building beautiful fences in North Carolina, so it only makes sense that they would give themselves the same privilege.

From the moment the video starts, Andrew has all the materials needed for the work.

He told one commenter that when he builds a fence, he buys in bulk, which translates to cheaper prices for both him and his customers.

With the help of his friend, he set to work repairing the massif, sanding down the fences and planning where to go to create a beautiful fence at the end of the day.

One commenter was very impressed with the template they used to help build the fence and was dying to have one for themselves.

“So we made this contraption ourselves,” Andrew replied.
“But it’s very simple! If you don’t have metal, you can use wood too!”

Even those who are not that handy can get themselves a nice privacy fence in no time.

Walmart currently sells privacy screens for $21.99. Any beginner can attach it to the railing with cable ties.

Walmart states that the privacy screen “offers instant privacy for patios, balconies or decks” and that “the stylish, striped patio fence privacy screen blocks unobstructed views so you can relax outdoors.”

Unlike traditional privacy fencing, this one is made with waterproof fabric, metal grommets and reinforced decks.

It “easily attaches to fences or decks, or weaves between deck posts or railings, and can be strategically placed to create individual privacy without impeding light or airflow,” Walmart said.

People left rave reviews and were amazed at how the simple product enhanced their homes.

“Please try it if you are looking for a cheap and effective way to protect your privacy!!!”

“Love the green and white stripes…I jazzed it up with some pink stuff, looks very bra 90210,” said one commenter.

One person even found several uses for the simple fence outside to keep nosy neighbors out.

“Yes this is a good private fence for a pet or child to have an area to play outside! This is my third fence, I just love it!”

Whether you are a professional or an ordinary person, everyone can have a privacy fence.
