TECNI trellis system?


I want to cover a bare fence with evergreen jasmine. The fence on our side has not got posts so is completely flat (if that makes sense)

I was thinking to use the TENCI cable trellis instead of having to dig and concrete in new posts. 

I was hoping to drill holes from my side through fence panel to the post on other side of fence to fix the hookeyes. 

Has anyone used this system and have an opinion on it or know if what I want to do makes sense or will work? 

Thank you :))

    If you mean the fence posts are on the other side, it usually means the fence belongs to the neighbour on the other side. If so, that means you can't attach anything without their permission. It's better to check first.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • I'm sure they won't have a problem - weirdly the fence on all 4 sides is the same in our garden!

  • But yes I will ask, thank you :)

    If the "nice" side is facing in to you, that's often the choice of the owner (ie you), but, as @Fairygirl says, it's best to check first for good neighbourly relations!
