What Size Piece of Netting Do I Need?

       Figuring out the size piece of netting that you need is simple but very important.  The biggest mistake that people make is to order a piece that is too short.  It is much better to have too much then to be short.
Accurately calculating the size of netting to buy can save your time, frustration and money. (by that I mean, your sanity and maybe even your marriage, just kidding)
