I am shopping for netting to support all types of annual vines for my 2018 season. I will set up (2) 100' rows and set metal cattle fence posts about 8' apart all along both rows. I will string a medium gauge wire across the top of the fence-line to support the net.
Question: what is your opinion on (1) Nylon trellis netting; (2) cotton trellis netting; (3) Bird-X nylon netting: or, give other netting suggestions.
This is what I did in 2017.

I use cattle panels for things to climb on. They comes in 16' lengths by 50" - sturdy and suitable for re-use indefinitely.
