Sometimes it is best to rent a temporary shaded 6' fence to keep thieves out and add privacy to your rehab. Never use Sunbelt in Riverside for your heavy equipment rental...they are weak and will not refund you for wasted time caused by their equipment breaking down all the time...all the freaking time.
