Chicken wire attachment

chicken wire attachment notes and tips


When I first started working with chicken wire my main method of attachment was using a staple gun, which works fine, but sometimes those staples will work loose over a few seasons if there's any pressure on it.

Now I use small drywall screws like in the picture above. It's pretty easy to wrap a few turns of wire around the screw before you completely tighten it down, and if you ever need to change anything it will be a lot easier to take back out compared to staples.
