We bought this fence from Lowe's and put it together. The fence and poles were $40 (I have rounded up). My husband and brother dug holes for the poles (3 each) and then attached the fence. This fence doesn't surround our home. The fence is in front of our vegetable garden beds. My husband and I painted it white . The paint and tools were $20. I would say this project took us approximately 6+ hours. My husband then added three pink climbing roses (from Home Depot) and some mulch to finish.
