I need to build some exterior metal lattices (for vines) for our house. Four panels approx. 9' wide by 14' tall with a 1' x 2' grid. The Planning Commission wants to see square or rectangular tubes & I don't want to spend a fortune on structural tubing. Suggestions? (Support/loading is not an issue here-- I'm just looking for a least cost solution.)
I wonder if you could use bird netting.
