Privacy fencing.

I am currently putting up privacy fencing around my back yard. My lot that I am fencing in is 250 feet deep on each side and 150 feet wide. Since I could not afford to buy that entire fence at once. I have been budgeting out two or three sections at a time, install them, and then save up for the next section. My neighbors KNOW I am crazy, but this is the only way I can afford to do it. Someone said they won't age the same, but I feel they can catch up within a season or two. I am putting the pretty side towards me. I will be attaching solar powered lights every 20 feet sections. Does this sound like a crack pot plan or a plan to stay out of debt and still get a major item completed? Let me know.

  • i think its a good plan,, some popel can only save up like that, it seems like a bigger goal when you gotta save up for a lot longer,, do it what ever way will get it done right!

  • I would probably get a credit card from home depot with no interest for 12 months and buy the whole thing or save up all of the money and do it all at once.

  • I don't know what all the options are... maybe what kaylan said would work! All I know is, you do what you gotta do, and if piece by piece is all you can do, than go for it!

  • I wouldn't worry about the fading, after the winter it will probably all look the same.
