Vege- net inspiration with Charmaine

Varinia Sowden - Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Charmaine has put together information on just how easy Vege net is to use in the garden

Vege netting is reusable organic and environmentally friendly. It is an ideal alternative to sprays  for the
exclusion of pests such as  snails and insects—including moths, grasshoppers, fruit-fly and birds are also deterred.
Whether it is draped over a garden or placed over a frame, vege net provides some protection from sun and wind, and because it breathes it creates a nurturing microclimate, retaining moisture and warmth.

   

 Netting can be wrapped and tied over individual pot-plants -

 use a wire hoop to give the plant some space to grow.

 Cap stakes with smooth items such as empty water bottles.

 

  

 

 

 
           

 

 

           

 Net will exclude snails from seedling boxes,

while providing a protected moist and shady microclimate

 for optimal seedling germination and growth.                                                

           

 A simple support of mesh-fence  2 to 3m long can prove an effective garden protector.
Twist the net and catch it under a tent-peg to hold it down.  Other methods of anchoring include laying down a star-picket or other type of stake along the edge; plastic bottles filled with water gentler on the net than bricks and rocks.   

 Vege net is versatile and light weight, I am inspired after her tips for greater success in the garden , I hope you are inspired as well.

Success Stories

As major investors in the Australian horticulture industry, Rewards Group Ltd needs to ensure maximized returns on all funds invested, particularly in orchard infrastructure. Accordingly, our choice of contractors is critical to the final success of any project.

Bill Hatton - Rewards Group Ltd.

We currently have 250 acres of net – about 80% of our orchard area. Without the protective canopy, we wouldn’t be able to supply our market requirements. Quality is important to us and we wouldn’t be able to meet the specifications of our customers without net.

Dino Rizzato - I&L Rizzato & Sons t/a Moonlight Orchards

We particularly liked the product offered by NetPro – high quality was our main criteria. The option of wooden posts was also an important feature because of the highly-corrosive conditions in the feedlot environment. We were able to work through the construction plan and the materials options during the quoting process.

Kevin Roberts - Sandalwood Feedlot Pty Ltd

We chose NetPro to construct our protective canopies, as we know NetPro have been around for some time, we know their work and there are plenty of examples of their work around – we like the consistency of standard. In addition, NetPro are recognized by the Finance bodies, and it is much easier to get finance for a structure.

I think it has made all the difference to the quality of our product – it has saved us from bird attack and from hail damage." Since 2001, Robert Channon Wines have won 23 trophies, 17 gold medals, 26 silver and 55 bronze medals.

We live in North Queensland and have a nine metre pool. We needed to replace the pool cover but most local businesses we contacted wanted to replace it with a shade sail and the one quote we received to fabricate a new cover to our design seemed exceedingly high.

Owen & Diane Cheetham - Townsville

In 2003, Golden Valley Orchards were offered the opportunity to work with the NCEA (National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture) and NetPro Pty Ltd on a research project evaluating the effectiveness of (amongst others) NetPro's dam-covers.

Initially the idea of the net canopy over the landfill was discussed with Netpro as they are a local company and at the time Netpro was considering advancing into this area (protection of landfills). Netpro assisted Council with a very reasonable price which allowed the project to proceed.
