Chicken Wire or Hardware Cloth?
Without a question in my mind, Hardware Cloth! It just looks more professional, not like it was just thrown together to get it done in a hurry.
The other thing we do from time to time is to spray paint the hardware cloth, it can almost blend in and almost becomes invisible. Hardware cloth is more durable and can be secured in place with washers and screws.
Hey it’s your house, you can do what you want right? Do it right, it looks way better…
