Old chain link fence, concrete reinforcement mesh, wire, bolt and nut.
What was your inspiration?
We had to tear out some old chain link fencing from our property when we installed a new fence a few years ago. We decided to keep the old fence posts are re-use them for vertical garden supports.
What are you most proud of?
This support is pretty sturdy and can withstand a lot of wind. I also love that it's so easy to see the beans on this support.
So far, we've managed to grow peas, pole beans and cucumbers on this support.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Think outside the box! Many different kinds of meshing can be used including concrete mesh, rabbit fencing, chain-link fencing, or even fishing line.
