Hopefully @royq will be able to get back to you shortly about what wire he used, but I do know that in a similar Bunnings project the team used this - https://www.bunnings.com.au/pinnacle-3-2mm-316-marine-grade-stainless-steel-wire-rope-per-metre_p431... It's also available in 4mm and 5mm versions.
What are you planning?
Hi Roy - love your work!
i was wondering how you affixed the wire to the colourbond (can’t quite make out the technique and fixings from the photos).
Could you elaborate a little more on this?
many thanks - Aidan
Many thanks for joining in the discussion. I'm sure @royq appreciates the feedback and will be happy to assist you and answer your question about the fixings as soon as possible.

What climber did you use?
I am in Bathurst NSW with heavy clay soil and of course frosts.
Welcome to Workshop. We're really pleased to have you join in the discussion.
In a previous post on this discussion, Roy shared that it was Chinese Star Jasmine that he planted - https://www.bunnings.com.au/140mm-chinese-star-jasmine-trachelospermum-jasminoides_p3640650
Let us know if you need a hand with anything.
The work and photos on this thread are a great inspiration! My fence is the identical colourbond color and the green really seems to make this pop.
Does anyone have any alternative ideas to the Chinese Star Jasmine? I have allergies to its flowers
I have passionfruit on the shortlist... maybe a ficus pumila - although it might struggle on the wire, any other ideas?
