A Garden Tip and My Growing Love Affair with Construction Mesh

I love construction mesh, it is so cheap ($7 each panel) and it is so can look good in any application from a Zen to a French Country garden.  That fact makes me love it all the more! 

It is really easy to find...You can get it at Lowes or Home Depot.

Here is some pictures of how I use it in my garden....

Here I use it to keep the kids, chickens, dog and farm cat out of the newly seeded garden...

Here I use it to cover my peppers and tomatoes when we have a freeze advisory.
not the best picture but you get the idea...

Once again it is used to keep  my menagerie out! this picture you can see my coop in the distance.  I call this garden my Chicken Garden.

This is my favorite application...You wire it together and use it vertically for growing sweet peas or sugar snap pea...I am growing both on vertical construction mesh trellises and I LOVE it!!

I am also going to get some more to use as trellises against my painted block wall for my bougainvilleas.  I will show you pictures of that once I get it up.  I have it on my list of things to do before the Tour de Coops on Dec.4!
Hope you now love construction mesh too and want to find a spot in your garden too! 
Have a beautiful Monday!

  3. That pic of the rose is fabulous! I love the mesh too! :)

  4. My friend here in TX is now on her way to the Home Depot to get her some construction mesh. I'm also going out for some to use it to build an area for our rabbit in the yard on the cheap. I think I'll try growing some edible plants for him around it. They'll probably wonder why they're selling more and more of of the stuff lately!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
