Industrial welded mesh is often used for fencing factory complexes as well as segregating areas within an industrial building but its uses are almost limitless. Here are 5 different ways to use it.
Much stronger than wood and far more resilient to the elements when coated, welded mesh makes an excellent trellis for growing vines and other climbing plants. With minimal maintenance it can last a lifetime in the garden.
Barrier to wildlife
If you live in an area where deer roam free it’s rare that you actually catch sight of them in your garden. The only evidence you are likely to find is that your plants have been trampled and the bark of your trees damaged by bucks rubbing their antlers against them. Deer cause millions of pounds worth of damage every year in the UK to farms and gardens.
Mesh fencing is a perfect solution to keep these beautiful yet destructive creatures out. The mesh size should be no more than 7.5 x 7.5 centimetres and the height a minimum of 1.5 metres. Part of the fence should be buried all around the perimeter to prevent them getting under it.
Quite often we see allotments and vegetable gardens with runner beans and peas growing up poles. A more efficient method of cultivating these vegetables is to erect welded mesh panels which are stronger than poles and will hold a larger quantity of plants.
Chicken wire is inexpensive but if you live in an area where foxes are prevalent, it won’t be enough to protect your poultry. Spend a little extra and build your chicken coop using mesh.
By creating a welded mesh square or rectangular space with four panels you can throw your leaves and garden waste into it to make a neat compost container.
In addition to the above such applications as aviaries, pet enclosures, petunia towers, pergolas and wall planters, among many other solutions, are all possible using welded mesh panels and fencing.
