Earlier this year I asked for suggestion for creating a separating wall between neighbors.
My neighbor ran a cable from my garage to the house. I started by adding butcher's twine working strings. I was trying be consistent with spacing and the knots I used.
I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to keep my knots even. Normally, I work on a board on smaller projects, but working against the wind and the height was a real eye opener.
I cannot tell you how many times I changed the patterns. Even then I was still not impressed with the outcome.
When I thought I was "finished", I wrapped a 1/4" piece of conduit with the ending knots. After looking at the wall for a couple of months, I decided that next summer I would add 2 more panels and work on the ones I already knotted. The ultimate goal is to have Ivy, Honeysuckle, and cardinal climbers grow up the wall and create a little more privacy.
Suggested materials for this project:
- 3 Cones of Butcher's Twine (Ace Hadware)
- Cable (had on hand)
- 1/4" conduit (had on hand)
