Vinyl coated chain link fence are often used for privacy, but can be expensive to build. One of the cheaper options for a durable fence that should have too little to no maintenance is a chain link fence, but these do not provide much privacy because of the large gaps in the chain link. But there are certain things that can be done to link the link fence to giving it privacy.
Vinyl covers can be attached to the side sections of the chain link fence of metal wire attachments, keeping anyone from being able to look through it at all. These vinyl cover pieces are often used along the fence lines of sporting events and live concerts, keeping anyone who has not paid on the outside from staring in. Pieces of vinyl like this are cheap to buy in bulk and can be attached with pieces of wire along the edges of the chain link.
These pieces of vinyl are not vulnerable to the weather, although some slices have to be cut into vinyl so that the wind can blow freely through it and not tear the cover in case of a wind storm. Growing vines along your chain link fence is an attractive, natural solution to creating foliage familiarity. Vines will grow thick and full over time and keep people from looking through parts of the chain link, making a natural barrier of greenery around what you fence and blending into surrounding yard, trees or forest.
