Making your own clear Polycarbonate Lattice

​ This is basically the finished product. It is guaranteed for five years, fits discretely on the fence and doesn't rot, need painting and isn't prone to termites. A 3mm thick, 2.4m x 1.2m sheet is $99 + GST.

I always wanted to get some lattice for the flower and grape vines I wanted to grow along the fence in the garden, but could never get around to buying them either for a lack of funds or transportation space in my car. Solving both problems I decided to use leftover polycarbonate sheets, cut to the height of my fence. I then drilled 6 cm diameter holes into them to create my own lattice panels.

Being transparent, I also figured that they would be ideal for letting me view any grapes that were growing behind the lattice in the future.

Finally I mounted the polycarbonate lattice onto the wooden fence beams with screws and trained the young vines to grow through the holes. The 6 cm diameter holes would also be large enough to allow me to pick any grape bundles that were behind the lattice.

In a couple years I will update you here on how this all worked out.

Sincerely,

Brett Plagens
