You are right! That's what I get for trying to post and work on an Excel program at the same time or maybe it is just age Rolling Eyes

for the close up photo that helped me a lot. I am a visual person.

So did you weave the top first and then the side poles? I see how the weaving works, but I need the process, step by step I'm afraid. Embarassed

While all 3 pieces of conduit were disconnected I weaved the top first. I then weaved one of the sides and connected it to the top piece. Last, I pulled the netting tight and weaved the other side of conduit and connected that one to the top. I cut off all the extra little strings hanging around. Hope that helps. Smile

ashort and glasshen

Between the two of you you gave me what I needed to weave my trellis netting onto the galvanized conduit on Friday, and I love it.

Being a bit of an uncoordinated goof, I already had my frames connected, so I just took the net, wove it up the two legs at the same time and stretched the net to the top, (so silly, I was running back and forth between the two sides ) Then I attached the top row with zip ties. To keep the whole thing taut, I also went back later and added zip ties to the sides.
Probably not the easiest way, but it worked. Maybe a bit of overkill, but certainly easier for me than trying to just zip-tie the netting to the frame when it was flopping around and the netting was always uneven and not as taut as I wanted.

Thanks for your great idea, photos and instructions.

I weaved mine last year which worked easily. However, it only lasted the one year. By the end of the season the netting was breaking from the top rail. I am not sure if I want to try it again this year or go with some other design.
