Pole beans on fence
I'm planning to grow some pole green and lima beans this year against my 6' fence. Would appreciate your advice on the following:
Is this 6' fence (see picture) a sufficient trellis for the beans?
Do I need to run some twine from top of fence to where the beans are planted to provide further support?
Will planting beans on the fence corrode the fence?
I've OKed the pole bean planting with neighbor already, but out of courtesy, would rather keep as much of the beans as possible on my side so I don't have to go into their yard to pick. How do I achieve this?
Will the pole beans growing on my fence look unruly (I'm going for a green screen look)? Do I need to prune the vine tops when they reach the height of the fence so the vines don't start flopping in air? Will topping off decrease the harvest?
Also, I've read about nylon netting for trellising. I'm more interested in twine b/c at the end of the season, supposedly I can compost the dried up vines and twine together, so less hassle. But what are the pros/cons of nylon v. twine?
