Any ideas for 'unobtrusive' wire supports on cedar posts?
Greetings fellow clem lovers!
Ok, gotta problem...small one...but would like to hear your ideas. We've got a new pergola going up that has several 6"x6" rough-sawn cedar posts which are destined to be the new climbing homes for clems. I'm trying to come up with a system for adding wire to these posts for the tendrils to easily grab BUT I want the system to be as unobtrusive as possible. Meaning, I don't want to surround the posts with wire fencing material or anything like that. The cedar is really beautiful and we want to be able to see it (until its covered with vines, of course :>) One thought is to install eye bolts intermittently up the posts and then thread 16-18 gauge wire through it. This will take a lot more time to install but I'm thinking the overall look will be one of minimal hardware.
If I go with this system, could someone give me a suggestion for spacing?
Any other suggestions/opinions are more than welcome! And thank you.
