Hello, I have a concrete post and (3) rail fence around the garden, I live by the coast so get a lot of wind (strong wind). I have previously attached the green wind breaker netting but it never lasts long and is in need of constant maintenance. Each bay is seven feet eight inches long by three feet high and I have 63 of them, so am in need of cost effective (cheap) wind proofing. I don't mind a bit of DIY so am thinking of making some type of timber panel that I can attach to each bay. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions or may have seen a solution to my problem? Thanks.

63 of them is gonna be expensive.

The cheapest way might be to get a lorryload of old wooden pallets, disassemble them and make a type of wicket fence. Trim the top of each plank into a spear shape (inverted V ) to make them look nicer.

You need to run a light guage wire through the netting also attach a wooden lath to the posts and place the post in front of the netting bobs your uncle If I can fina a picture ill post
