So how to save money?
Here are some tips:
1, Do not buy this from a retailer. The retailer price is obviously high. Why?

A few years ago, it’s not easy, but now, you can find the distributor even the manufacturer online! You can search “wholesale boxwood panels” in google or bing.
2, Calculate right. Most retailers sell the boxwood panels in box. One box usually contains 3 square meters, so if you calculate wrong, you will waste a lot of money!

Because it is flexible. If we want to cover a 50*80 inches fence, How many we need? Don’t worry, there is a calculator can help us. This tool is very accurate, we have no waste if we use this tool.
3, Prepare some zip-ties, we can piece the pieces together with zip-ties, this can help us save some boxwood panels. Some stores sell boxwood panels coming with zip-ties for free, we should consider this because buying zip-ties still spend us money and time.
