  5. Their web site has more information and photos explaining how it works. Looks like a recycled political sign or “LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING ONLY BUTTER” signs you see at traffic lights could be used for the backing (those corrugated plastic ones).

    For those interested in how to do this especially with something like landscape fabric. I asked the guys at lowes and there is a landscape fabric that is good for something like this that’s breathable but also keeps water in. I can’t remember which one it was but it was 3’X50′ for $25. I just installed some trellises in a corner and plan on making similar pockets for them.
