I'm looking for some small (foot or two high) fencing to put on a patio to
cosmetically "fence off" an area where building is in progress, no more than
10-15 feet in length. It has to be "portable" because it needs to stand on a
paved area (no drilling, etc), I was wondering if the knowledgeable folks
here knew where I could find some? It's quite sheltered, so I don't need
anything too heavy base-wise but something that looks half-decent would be
preferable (ie not that red netting stuff!) as it's going to be there for
quite a while.
Any suggestions most welcome.
Here in NZ I've seen plastic hexagonal netting, fairly heavy grade. It
comes in rolls but doesn't bend in half too easily. Available by the
metre. Similar to wire netting if the wire were about the thickness of
(looks around for example) the cord of an electric lamp, + and - only
no earth. Larger garden stores have it.
Then there is brush fencing, again sold rolled up, the idea being you
fix it to a frame.
Or paint the red (orange?) netting :-)

Tiling laths are quite cheap and would make a good light fence. Uprights
at, say, 4 foot intervals could have a shelf bracket either side to sit on.
An alternative would be to get lengths of Weldmesh and screw that to
How about some of that logroll edging stuff you get for putting round raised
beds etc? Comes in different heights around the dimensions you state, in
relatively short rolls, and could either have a batten of some sort nailed
to the bottom to act as a stand, or just laid out in a wiggly line it would
stand up on its own? Most of the sheds and garden centres stock it. You
can also get white plastic 'picket fence' in some of them.
