Posters name started with Xan and was long.
It contained info. on a cement ladder she found at HD and used it for making trellises.
If this is wrong forum maybe someone could tell me where it is. I had it this morning and can't get it back.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a quilter and I thought you meant sewing thread!!!!! LOL I'll be laughing about this all day......... (It doesn't take much to amuse me!)

At HD last spring they told it didn't exist. Well it sure does and is made by a company called Wire-Bond. They also make many other masonry supportive products.

Well, one thing led to another and now I'm trying to talk husb. into making a humpbacked bridge for over my latest pond and put a curved tressis over it possibly with some of these support pieces but in a heavier gauge wire.

Mork, Having a drapery workroom for 30 years I can understand your thoughts. Glad I made you laugh as a day without a laugh is a dull day.

Think I should call Wire-Bond and find a retail outlet for it. I think it would come in very handy for many kinds of vines and could always be doubled up if you plant heavy vines on it.

Thanks all.

Bonnie - maybe this will inspire more ideas:

Cattle panels look like a great idea for my vegies. Haven't had a vegie garden in 2 years thanks to fighting wild rabbits.
I know fencing is best solution cause we've tried electric fence and many other remedies but my getting my Kubota in and out of the garden and being able to work is the main problem. We would have to have one whole end of garden movable so that it would be workable. We are still brainstorming on this.

Thanks for the article very interesting and definitely worth trying.

I never responded to this post before as I had no info to share on the subject.

I'm glad you found that thread Arlene, it is a very cool. Gonna look for some...

I still haven't used the idea but would love to stretch it between a few trees to hide a view of the side of the neighbor's shed. Maybe I'll do it this year. I'd plant a few clematises along it and never have to see his mess again.

I got a FREE really long gate, it was meant to be opened for cars and trucks. I secured it to a 4 foot chain link fence and reenforced it, standing on end. Then planted clematis on it, I LOVED it! blocked the view of the neighbor from my kitchen window and the back side of his shed where his aluminum ladder etc was stored.

Excellent! I'm sure we would all love to see a photo. Now I'm jealous!

I love my cast iron ancient gate but it doesn't hide the view, at the opposite end of the property, that I hate.
