I am thinking a free alternative would be 8’ long, straight Redwood/cedar/locust poles about 4” thick, which can be found for free around here. Cut stave points on them for driving them in, and basically follow the first couple steps of a junk pole fence/English dead hedge, but instead of filling it in, finish with a wire run through the posts like in the video. Thanks for the idea!

The first is holding an espaliered Japanese pear tree. The second holds up 4" square fencing that supports thorn-less blackberry and goji berry plants. Hope this helps.
