Wall Attachments to Support Vines - Part 3

This is the continuation of Part 2 in a three-part series.

With the brackets in place, it's time to string the anchors together. Here's the wire used: a gauge 14 G.I. wire. You'd also need a pair of pliers for forming and bending wire as well as a pair of vise-grips to secure your work in place as needed.

To string the wire, you'd actually just need to tie it onto the bracket so it rests there. Within a four inch space on top of the bracket, the wire needs to pass through it twice.

You'd need some twist ties or some thin wires to do this. Here's one wire resting on the bracket.

Notice the twist ties securing the gauge 14 wire in place at the hole.

As mentioned the wire needs to pass through the bracket twice.

Here's the detail of a completed bracket as seen from below.

And here's the whole completed setup as seen from above.

Here's the detail of a completed end bracket. Notice the space between the bracket and the post.

There's a box for the telephone line and we don't want vines covering up and climbing on to the telephone cable.

Here's the detail of how the wire may be too short and needs to be extended. Use a loose Western Union splice to join wires together as shown below. A rattail joint would also suffice.

Finally, to add stability to the whole structure, you need to anchor the two end brackets. Anchoring the end brackets reduces the lateral forces brought by strong winds.

This is especially if you have robust vines growing. See the procedures here.

Here's the vine now attached to the wires.

Use twist ties as shown below to secure the vine especially if the vine's tendrils have not clung to the G.I. wire.
