advantage of nylon netting over wire

Post  toddvol on 4/17/2012, 4:56 pm

What is the advantage of using nylon netting for trellis over 4" x 4" goat wire panel or even concrete reinforcement wire.

I have my conduit frame built and have access to goat wire for free.

Personal preference, and the wire will be stringer and last longer. You cannot beat the price of 'free'! Wink

The one advantage of nylon netting is it will not burn the plants by getting too hot as metal can do sometimes.

I used the recommended nylon netting on my trellises last year, but this year I converted the trellises over to cattle panels. Despite the statements that the nylon netting would last a few seasons, mine was falling to pieces by the end of the summer. Additionally, I found it difficult to work with, and it was too expensive to replace year after year, so this year I spent a bit more $ on a one-time purchase of cattle panels that will last forever. It was much easier to attach to my trellis. Free panels are even better! Not sure what "goat panels" are, but as long as you can easily reach through the openings from one side to the other, it should be fine.

With a metal trellis you can burn the dead bean vines off with a propane weed burning torch Smile
