Have you ever had pigeons in your garden eating your home grown vegetables? And have you ever tried to scare them away? Then you have probably noticed that they aren't scared of anything.
CUBE is the solution to that problem. It is a modular netting system adaptable to every plant and usable for several years. The modularity enables the nets to grow with your plant and it makes it possible to construct any shape you want.

Step 1: Materials and tools

If you fill a tube with sand, it helps prevent kinking when bending. So, you could use a heat gun (well ventilated!!!!) to soften the pvc and bend the pipe. Or if you are using galvanized metal pipe (no heat gun required).

I made mine out of steel tubing and used chicken wire on them too. I used mine as mulch cubes.
