    Default Netting material

    Looking for some ideas for inexpensive netting material to make large net lights to attach to house. Something like baseball backstop net but considerably less expensive. Square not diamond pattern. All Ideas are welcome.

    Well if you don't want to use something designed for pixels, like any of these: https://www.boscoyostudio.com/index....dex&cPath=2_30

    then you might try something like:

    There is some overhead and waste involved, but you can take diamond netting, rotate it 45degrees, cut off the corners, and you have a square pattern.

    Search "trellis netting" or "horticulture netting" or "vegetable support net"

    It is heavy and not flexible, but have you considered hardware cloth? I do not know the price. It comes in large rolls and I think it securely holds bullet or square pixels that have been pushed into it.
    At Agricultural supply houses like Tractor Supply Company, they have rolls of various sizes of live stock fencing. Even chicken wire might work for you.

    Boscoyo has a few varieties but they may not qualify as inexpensive.

    This is just for regular led strings so the requirement for pixels is not needed. Ive already ruled out the boscoyo product and hardware cloth. I've got two stories to hang. I may just have to do some pvc frames as I've done in the past. Really wanted to do some netting so i could just roll it up for storage.

    I had good luck this: https://www.menards.com/main/buildin...600-c-5768.htm
    Held up in a vertical position with lights attached to it from the beginning of October through the end of December.

    We use this and other sizes of this material and it works great! We ziptie the light strings to it and then bungee it to our trees, 30 of them in the yard! Also 7 columns on the patio. Its easy to cut with scissors.

    After the season it rolls up and stores nicely as well.

    There’s hardware cloth and then there’s plastic hardware cloth. I was at Lowe’s this morning looking at the Tenax 3x15x1/2” mesh. They also carry Blue Hawk 4x50’ plastic mesh (I think it’s 2-inch mesh) that might fit your needs.
