I love this fence but would like to know if the Corrugated metal is on top of a wooden fence or just on its own. I have a Wooden fence which must stay that I share with neighbors, but really want this look. So I want help in how to attach the Metal ( Or Fiberglass) to the fence. Am concerned about circulation between the 2 materials. Thoughts? Many Thanks, VL California

Would this fence hold up to high winds? Would it get very hot? - We live at the mouth of a canyon, which causes high winds. We also live in a desert area so it gets hot. Do you feel this would be a good privacy fence and would you plant grass nearby? What did you use to brace it against?

I have a similar fence in the northwest. The metal is turned sideways.
Yes, it will reflect heat in the summer.
If you use new metal, you could wipe it down with muratic acid to take away the shine. Commonly used metal is applied.
It is as wind resistant as any fence would be. No more, no less.

Steel, iron, and aluminum products may be galvanized; that is, coated with zinc to form a zinc oxide barrier to corrosion of the substrate metal. Zinc can be applied at different thicknesses for more or less protection. Thickness is reflected in the price. Care must be taken in handling to avoid scratching the galvanized finish. Field cuts and drill holes require treatment with zinc-containing paint to repair the anti-corrosive barrier. In highly corrosive environments (seashore, air pollution, in-ground, chemical contact, subject to physical abrasion) galvanization can eventually erode away, exposing the substrate metal to oxidation (rust).

About Thamnochrtus - Love this treatment. How does one keep the Thamnochortus insgnis looking slender and spare? I understand it grows to at least 5'x5' and gets very dense. Also, are these male and female plants? I understand there's a difference in their behavior, and I would like to know how to best use them in the garden. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Tips From Great Urban Gardens
I've always had a thing for corrugated metal, whether it's used on the outside of a building or the inside (such as on the back of an island), so I love this fence. The tall, wispy plants stand out against the color and texture of the corrugated metal.
Metal ribbed panels could read industrial and cold, but whimsical grasses make them come alive. The vertical line of the grasses echoes the line of the ribbing but moves with the wind. Also notice the bright green ground-hugging plants on the wall's top and bottom.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Landscape Detail: Do Fence Me In
A solid fence of wood posts and rails with a corrugated infill creates a striking presence. And the plantings certainly soften the fence, creating a nice combination of textures and colors. This is ideal for transitional or contemporary architecture, as it combines a clean, modern aesthetic with softer, older materials. And this fence is great at providing privacy as well as security.
Creating a contemporary feel comes easily when you substitute corrugated metal panels for wood. The rhythmically undulating surface complements delicately vertical plants, like thrashing reed (Thamnochortus insignis, zones 9 to 11), a South African native right at home in this simple, stylish corner of the yard. Tip: Building and zoning codes may include restrictions about how high walls and fences can be within the setback areas of your property. Check with local officials before setting the height and location of your walls.
Set BoundariesMinimalism in the garden should should start with boundaries. Because minimalist design is about restriction, especially in the use of color within the overall design, the choice of what is used — be it fencing, walls or hedges — is vital to creating a successful scheme. Neutral colors tend to be the most popular, as they are calming and understated. Unpainted, galvanized, corrugated metal panels have been used here; the natural furrows and ridges create texture and shadow.
