Eye screws and twine for brick column--need advice
I'd like to install eye screws on a brick column so I can weave sisal twine between the screws for my new Jackmanii clematis to climb. At the end of the season, I plan to cut the twine off along with the Jackmanii vines and compost the whole lot.
Question for those of you who know more about home improvement than I do:
Do I need to use a special type of eye screw on brick?
Do I insert the eye screw into the brick itself or into the mortar in between the bricks?
Do I need to use an anchor to prevent the screws from being pulled out of the column in strong wind, etc.?
Does the screw hole need to be sealed with silicone or anything to prevent moisture from seeping in?
Any other hardware stuff I need to consider?
