Fruits and Berries
Simply drape over plants. Edges should be lightly covered with soil or weighted down or secured using Fabric Staples to protect against predators and to prevent wind mishaps.
Keep netting high enough off the pond to prevent it from sagging into the water. Pull moderately tight and peg around perimeter of pond using Anchor Stakes. For large ponds, wire, cord or Poly Line may be suspended over pond for added support for the netting. Netting may be joined by lacing together.
Install posts around garden area at spacing not exceeding 12 feet. Run a taut wire or our Poly Line along the tops of the posts for netting support. Fasten fencing to one post and pull moderately taut while securing to adjacent posts. Fasten netting to top wire of cord using Netting Clips or lacing. If you wish a top netting cover, run wire or cord across the tops of the posts to its opposite on the other side of the garden area. Fasten one edge of netting to one perimeter wire or cord and drape over garden area to the other side. Secure with clips or lacing and cut to fit. Netting may be joined by lacing together with clips or poly line.
