Garden Nettings

Garden Netting is used in your garden and greenhouses for a wide range of purposes - this is why we stock a variety of netting to suit all your garden requirements. All our garden netting is strong, long lasting and UV protected and is available in a selection of mesh sizes and widths.
We stock crop and plant protection netting - our range of plastic nets can be used to cover frames or used directly over crops to protect from a wide range of pests, for example our Enviromesh is a very fine insect protection netting that will stop carrot fly damage, whilst our Butterfly Netting is fine enough to stop cabbage whites. Use our larger Bird Netting to protect your pond from herons as well as preventing debris from falling in.
Netting can also be used as a plant support - any of our bird netting, butterfly or pigeon netting can be used to provide support for a range of climbing plants.
As part of our garden netting range, wcan also provide shade and wind protection by using our Green Shade Net or Windbreak Netting. Reusable year after year our shade netting with efficiently shade your greenhouse with it's 50% shade value. Whilst our Windbreak Netting can be used to create temporary screens or permanent fences, reducing wind speeds by up to 50%.

Crop Protection Netting
Crop protection netting is designed to keep your plants -soft fruit, vegetables, seedlings or newly sown lawn - safe from a wide range of pests. Simply select the correct net to deter the pests damaging your crops - these could be small animals, such as cats, through to birds, butterflies and as small as carrot fly.

Protect your fruit and vegetable crops from birds using either our pigeon netting or bird netting - this net has a small enough mesh to protect your crops, whilst being large enough that birds don't become entangled in it. For protection from butterflies - such as cabbage whites - use our butterfly netting - remembering that butterfly netting will stop bees so it will need to be removed when your crops are in flower so they can be pollinated.

To keep insects away from your crops cover them with enviromesh. This is such a fine mesh that it will protect your plants from carrot fly, cabbage root fly, aphids, caterpillars etc whilst still allowing water to reach your plants.

You can use our nets and meshes to cover frames, cages or cloches or drape the net over fruit trees or bushes. It's also light enough to be placed over crops without any other support, simply hold in place using ground pegs.

Bird Netting
Bird Netting - also known as anti-bird netting - is designed to protect fruit and vegetables from birds. This netting can be used to cover cages or fit over garden hoops or it can be draped directly over fruit, fruit trees or vegetables. Our Bird Netting can also be used for covering ponds, protecting fish from herons or simply to keep leaves out of the pond. It can even be used for protecting newly sown lawns. Whilst deterring birds, the netting is small enough that birds won't become entangled in it, but is large enough to allow smaller essential pollinating insects through.

A black plastic square mesh, the netting is easier to install than knitted nets. Strong, yet lightweight, the netting is robust enough for covering cages, yet is flexible enough to be draped directly over crops. Available in three different widths, simply order the number of metres you require.

Although normally thought of for protecting crops, our bird netting is strong enough to support plants as they grow. It is ideal for lightweight climbers like sweet peas or runner beans. It can also be attached to fences or arches to provide long-lasting plant support.

Butterfly Netting
Our butterfly netting - or anti-butterfly netting - will reduce caterpillar damage to your crops. The net is fine enough to stop virtually all moths and butterflies - particularly cabbage whites - as well as deterring most insects. Light enough to lay directly over crops, it's great for covering seedlings, young plants and newly sown lawns. Butterfly netting can also be used to cover low frames, cages and cloches.

When you are growing crops that need pollinating, you'll need to remove the butterfly netting during flowering to allow bees and other pollinating insects to do their work, or, alternatively, use our bird netting.

Strong and durable our butterfly netting is an extruded black polyethylene net that is both rot proof and UV stabilised. Available in two different widths, simply order the number of metres which you require - and don't forget to order ground pegs to hold the butterfly netting in place.

Pigeon Netting
Pigeons will attack a wide range of plants, but particularly brassicas (such as broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers), peas, cherries and lilac. They will peck at the leaves and rip off portions, often leaving just the stalks and larger leaf veins. They will also attack and strip buds, leaves and fruits from blackcurrants and other fruit bushes, as well as stripping berries from shrubs such as cotoneaster, berberis, ilex, pyracantha and sorbus . You can protect low growing crops by covering them with pidgeon netting - but you need to be quick. Large birds such as pigeons can do serious damage to your plants extremely quickly - so if you haven't protected your plants with netting at the start, you will need to cover them as soon as you see the first lot of damage. Strong and durable our pigeon netting is an extruded polyethylene net that is rot proof, doesn't absorb water (so doesn't stretch) and UV light stabilised for use in direct sunlight.

Although pigeons are present all year round, they tend to be a particular problem during early summer when crops are developing and the winter months when brassicas may be the only vegetation available.

Insect Netting
Insect netting is a very fine net that has been developed to protect your plants from even the smallest insects - use it to protect against cabbage root fly, carrot fly, cabbage white butterfly, pea moth, cutworm, caterpillars, onion fly, cabbage whitefly, leaf miners, whitefly and many other types of aphids. Whilst providing effective insect protection, it will also protect your crops from birds, rabbits and hares. Although a very fine net it still allows excellent light transmission, good air-flow and allows water to filter through.

Ideally place the insect netting over where you have planted your - so before it emerges from the ground - crop leaving enough slack for the growth of the crop but anchoring the edges securely using ground pegs. The insect netting can then be left in place until the autumn when insects will be inactive. If you're protecting crops that continue to grow over the winter months then you could leave the netting in place, as it will provide protection from birds and small animals. If your plants need pollinating by bees then you will need to remove the net when the plants are in flower.

Insect netting is strong, rot resistant and UV protected so at the end of the season you can remove it, roll it up and store away until it's needed again the following year.

Shade Netting
Shade Netting can be used in your greenhouse to protect your plants from the harmful effects of the sun and to reduce the temperature in the greenhouse. Fit the shade netting to the outside of your greenhouse and it will prevent the rays of the sun from penetrating the glass, so reducing the temperature within the greenhouse. The shade netting can be fixed on the inside of the greenhouse - with this arrangement your plants will be protected from the sun but the netting won't reduce the greenhouse temperature.

Our shade netting is manufactured from a knitted high density polyethylene (HDPE) green monofilament which is rot resistant, chemical resistant and UV stabilised for long life, so it can be reused year after year. Lightweight, flexible and easy to cut, there are eyelets at regular intervals along the seams either side of the netting for easy fixing and for joining together. Although designed as a summer shade material, it will withstand the vagaries of the British weather - so isn't damaged by heavy wind, rain or hail.

Windbreak Netting
Windbreak netting is ideal for gardens in exposed locations that are often subjected to strong winds that can damage garden plants. By creating a windbreak you'll be reducing the wind speed, which will help to prevent damage to evergreen foliage, will reduce disturbance of shallow-rooted plants, broken fences, shattered greenhouse glass and the scattering of pot plants. If you live in a coastal area, a windbreak will also help to reduce damage caused by salt-laden winds.

Designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, our windbreak netting will protect plants and seed beds from wind, frost or strong sunlight. The windbreak netting is manufactured from high density, green polyethylene that is both UV stabilised and rot resistant. The netting offers good wind speed reduction, cutting wind speeds by up to 50%.

To create an effective windbreak batten the windbreak netting to wooden fence posts - battening ensures that the forces exerted onto the wind break is spread evenly ensuring the mesh doesn't tear. We recommend using straining wires - for example you could use the Gripple Wire - when installing windbreak netting as this will help to keep fences taut and will stop the net from sagging. Generally windbreak netting should be placed to face the prevailing winds (in the UK this is from the south-west), although you may position them to protect from the cold north and easterly winds.

Netting Fixings
Netting fixings are used to support netting against a structure - so around a fruit cage, on the inside of a greenhouse, against a fence etc. Anywhere where you need to fix netting, we had a fixing available to hold the net securely in place. Our comprehensive range of net fixings can be divided into groups depending on where the fixing is being used:

Fixing To A Greenhouse - you will use different fixings for a wooden greenhouse compared to a greenhouse with an aluminium frame. Fixings are also different if you are fixing to the outside of the greenhouse or to the inside frame. For wooden greenhouses we recommend Woodpins. For aluminium frames consider the Alliplugs for inside the greenhouse orFixalls or Fabric Fixalls are recommended.

Fixing To A Fruit Or Vegetable Cage - keeping your crops safe from birds, when building a fruit or veg cage you will need to be able to securely attach the net to the frame. We have Netting Clips designed to hold net to net - so use when overlapping nets to make a join or to hold against the framework. We also have Ground Pegs which are used around the base of the fame to hold netting securely to the ground.

Fixing To A Fence Or Wall - we recommend using the Gripple Wire and Gripple Tensioners to create a framework of wire against the fence to hold the net securely in place.

If you are not sure which netting fixing to use call us on 01246 451077 and we'll be happy to help.
