Structural fish net

I’ve been looking at fish net . . . I think the answer may be to tie my own.  I can do that.  I’ve added a spool of my favorite woven cord to the shopping list.  I think I’m going to have to tie the netting as I go down the wall installing plants.  That’s the only way I can conceive of getting the net installed exactly where/how it needs done.  I’ve got a shuttle/needle, I think.  I’ll have to dig out mom’s binder of needles and shuttles to see if I have what I need.  She did tatting (whole different thing) so I know there’s a tatting shuttle in there.

I have to laugh at myself.  I am SO anal.  I can see it’s going to take me hours to put together a fairly simple 5’x5′ wall.  I know if I don’t do it in my totally anal fashion I will be tearing it apart to rebuilt it later.  Because I have built a wall already I know what I want to do to have a long lasting wall that looks good . . . and incorporates a lot of my existing house plants so I don’t have to do quite so much watering!

If you have a minute, watch this video.  It’s a very cool self-contained plant wall.
