Installation Guide

Easy Gardener Multi-Use Netting can be easily installed using wood or metal posts readily available on the market. For general safety, we recommend that you wear gloves and protective eyewear when installing this product.

1. Determine type of post to be used.

If you are installing your fence/netting for purely ornamental purposes, (i.e. as a border around your flower garden) you can use wooden stakes. For more durable or permanent installations, metal “U”, “T” shaped posts or rods can also be used. Wooden stakes or metal posts should be driven at least 12 inches into the ground with a hammer.

2. Set corner post and space other posts every 4 feet.

If your installation requires more strength, you may need to brace your corner post so that you can pull your fencing tight. A properly tensioned installation will maintain an attractive appearance over a longer period of time.

3. Attach fencing to posts.

Fencing can be attached to wooden stakes or posts with staples or “U” shaped nails. The staples or nails should be positioned diagonally over the thicker grid joints. For more permanent installations, use a wooden batten or lath no less than ½ inch wide to fasten the fence to the post by nailing through the batten into the post. Make sure to nail through openings and not directly into the fencing material. Plastic ties may be used to attach fencing to metal posts. Place wood battens on either side of the fencing and then use the ties to attach to the posts.

4. Trim excess fencing material.

Excess fencing material can be trimmed with scissors or shears. Polls can be spliced together by laying the ends of the rolls over each other and interweaving a 1/8 inch metal or fiberglass rod in between alternate apertures.
