We have a lot of old electric poles and supports. I decided to use some last year to build a screened structure, the purpose of which is to keep bugs and birds off a few items like corn, cabbage and barley.
Structure is up but the screen mostly blew off during the winter. I had stapled it on. So need a new way to attach the screen. I'm currently testing these nails on a part. Been 2 weeks and still holding.
The buttresses are structurally necessary and create an exterior planting zone. I want to plant useful items that will help deter predators. I m thinking garlic and onions. Opinions?
I also had to weed cover it all over because the loose dirt and mulch became cat bathroom and and its SMELLED. Awful blegh. So trying to protect it from cats now too.
