The fence has three parts--the posts, cross beams and the rolls of screening. They put the posts in concrete and are going to fill in the seams where the cross pieces go into the posts with caulk. Steve screwed the cross beams into the posts and the fencing to the cross beams every foot or so top and bottom.
I would be inclined to use pea gravel instead of concrete, or at least to try it. My ex-neighbor Ralph taught me that. He felt the extra drainage actually prolonged the life of the post. He probably didn't care that it's also more eco-friendly.
