Trellis wire

heavyoilguy(Z2 ALBERTA)January 5, 2010

Does anybody know if clothesline wire would work for the wire that would go between the 2 uprights ? I live in a small town and the only 9 gauge wire i can buy comes in a 1000' roll , Way to big and expensive for me ,

I need to do about 60'

i am using 1/2 inch metal conduit and it is working well i use a bender on one end of each joint and then slip an inexpensive connecting collar and use selftapping metal screw to hold them in place. as for using wire on trellis i buy #12.5 hitensile wire at .02 cents a foot from kencove and even at 1000 ft plus shipping its not that much

I partially agree with "johngreenhand". It's an informative and I hope it should be effective.
