I have used this netting for several years now, in a number of different applications. It holds up well against UV damage and as long as it is properly secured, will keep a number of pests out. It is lightweight and much less expensive than similar products available at big box stores. The one drawback to using this netting was that large snakes attempt to crawl through it and get caught. They are not hard to release, but you have to clip a few squares in order for them to have enough space to finish crawling through. The snakes are there to feast on small rodents, though, so it's in your best interest to pay attention to your fences and help the snakes when they need it. I honestly find it very difficult to garden without this netting.
