Add to existing fence height without removing fence

Postby stevie0398 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 11:45 am


I currently have a 5 ft fence and I am looking to add to it to increase the height without removing the current fence. Can any suggest the best way of doing this?

Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

A trellis is the usual solution. Fix 6’x4”x1” treated planks to your existing posts and then fix a 1’ trellis to suit.
