Where do you buy wire for low tunnel hoops?
I wanted to get something ASAP to make some 7ft hoops to cover my strawberry bed (figured since it's just for a couple of months to keep critters out I'd just use sheer curtains from Goodwill sewn together to cover). Either UV-rated ENT (comes 10ft length for $1.60 but HD should cut) or just wire - whichever was cheaper. Wire would be easier to get into our rocky ground.
AWG 8 bare copper wire is $227 (plus 6.35% tax) for 500ft at HD, I don't need copper, aluminum should be fine at that gauge.
Even though I'd be "wasting" 3 ft by cutting the PVC to 7ft length (unless I had a single row of something else to cover with the 3ft piece), I'd still rather pay 23 cents per ft than 48 cents but if anybody knows of cheaper wire I'd rather have wire than PVC.
