Hi @Cas,

 

Welcome to Workshop. I trust our community members will provide loads of helpful advice and inspiration for your home improvement projects. Feel free to post anytime you need a hand. 

 

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?

Re: Climbers to dress up Colorbond fence

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

Hi Roy,

What climber did you use?

I am in Bathurst NSW with heavy clay soil and of course frosts.

Hi @mel2795,

 

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.

Re: Climbers to dress up Colorbond fence

Hello everyone, 

 

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 :unhappy: 

I have passionfruit on the shortlist... maybe a ficus pumila - although it might struggle on the wire, any other ideas?

Cheers,
