4 Unique Applications of Chicken Wire
4 Unique Applications of Chicken Wire
May 10, 2022

An inexpensive and reliable solution for fencing off chicken and other poultry, chicken wire is an integral part of most farms. Made of light, flexible, yet strong galvanized steel, it is made by welding or weaving this wire into hexagonal patterns. Available in various gauges, chicken wire gained its name primarily due to its use in poultry farming. However, there are several other uses for the product, especially in landscaping which was discussed in a blog before. Now, here are 4 more unique uses of chicken wire that further showcase its versatility.

 

Uses of chicken wire

 

Creating Mini Cloches

 

Growing plants, especially in harsh weather conditions can be a challenge. For this purpose, cloches are used. However, conventional cloches require a lot of skill and might not be a good fit for a small garden. Instead, using chicken wire in tandem with frost cloth can create excellent mini cloches that can protect tender plants during winter. 

 

Vertical Gardening

 

Certain plants like peas, tomatoes, ivy and beans require a support structure for them to climb. To offer support and simultaneously improve the aesthetic value of the garden, one can use chicken wire for vertical gardening. Simply make a trellis by first acquiring a rectangular frame and stringing the chicken wire over it. 

 

Lighting

 

Industrial-style architecture and lighting are quite popular across many commercial establishments these days. When it comes to lighting, chicken wire is a great option to create a fashionable lamp shade. When combined with an old-fashioned bulb, it can create the desired ambient effect at the fraction of the cost of purchasing a conventional lampshade.

 

Paper Mache Support

 

Paper mache is used for a plethora of reasons and these projects require a base frame so that they can get the desired shape. Chicken wire is also an excellent choice for this purpose due to its superior flexibility. Thus, it can be fashioned into a frame for a paper mache, or it can be used as an artistic sculpture itself.

 

Apart from chicken wire, Ferrier Wire and Design Metals also manufacture brass mesh, copper mesh, stainless steel mesh, and more. Contact us to place your order today.
