    I know that, looking at the photos I didn't pick up on the bracing in the same direction.

    Thanks no_akira for answering my questions - I have a better understanding of the construction now. It wouldn't work for me as I don't have any high fences and I'd have to buy Heras panels. If I did summat similar it would be with wire mesh, arched at the top and panels at the side.

    For those of you who have implied that this has been like the Spanish Inquisition, don't you have an enquiring mind of your own? Surely its better to ask questions and show interest in a design than give a Like and move on.
    A forum is a place to discuss, ask questions and receive answers from the wealth of knowledge that our members possess and happily share. So don't knock it when people need to know more.

    As you were...............

    VC am I sensing a sense of humour failure?, as a Python fan I loved the link to the video on the thread...

    [JARRING CHORD]
    [The door flies open and Cardinal Ximinez of Spain [Palin] enters, flanked by two junior cardinals. Cardinal Biggles [Jones] has goggles pushed over his forehead. Cardinal Fang [Gilliam] is just Cardinal Fang]

    Ximinez: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our four...no... Amongst our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again

    And yes normally I would have asked a load more questions but my "little nest of vipers" has been keeping me busy with decorating.

    Sorry, but I think perhaps we all need a break from this thread for now.
    I'm going to close it, but... no_akira....let us know if/when you'd like it opening again please.

    Well done so far, and I hope other Grapes' advice has been of some help?
