  • Dec 24, 2019

In this article I would like to describe some practical props options for currants, which can be made from scrap materials. Such designs are suitable for the majority of fruit bushes, but I decided to describe them as an example of this particular culture.

1. From scraps of PVC pipes

Of the remaining scraps after repair PVC pipes and triple corners can make a solid structure to support currant branches. The main advantage of such backups is safety. Smooth thick pipe will not damage the bark of the branches under the weight of even a very rich harvest. Damage during high winds, too, will be minimal.

To create these backups need a saw for metal measuring tape and sealant for gluing. To strengthen the construction, with the corners of the pipe can be fastened via screws, rack and put on metal rods driven into the ground.

2. Of metal poles and rope

From scraps of metal pipes and cables can be durable holder currant branches. From tools only need a drill, wire cutters and a sledgehammer. At the top of the columns is done small holes are driven further into the ground around the bearing bush, after which the cable is pulled therethrough. A stable design that can withstand quite a lot of weight.

To a metal cable is not damaged bark of the branches, it is possible to wrap a thick cloth. For example, an old suit or a linen bag trim curtains.

3. Of the metal rod

Long metal bars may also serve as a support for the fruit bushes. To create a backup bar must be folded in half around a large tree in such a way as to obtain a suitable diameter arc. The ends of the arc to bend at right angles as shown in the photos. You can do this leaning on a table, workbench or the bench. Backup ready. Now we have to stick structure in the ground so that the arc is maintained branches bush.

The resulting space, which may fall branches can be dragged with a rope wrapped in a thick cloth.

4. Of metal parts

Backups made from metal parts are durable and long-lasting. In the presence of grinders, it takes about 30 minutes to create a design. For convenience and speed up the process it is better to take a perforated corners. This will not spend time drilling holes. Between themselves the corners fastened with bolts and nuts. If desired, the structure can be dismantled and re-raise always.

To avoid damaging the bark of the branches, on the surface of the holding should be wound tight fabric. It will save the line from freezing during cold winter weather.

5. From the wooden bars

If the hand is no scraps of PVC pipe, metal parts and twigs, a backup can be made of the usual wooden bars. This design does not serve as long as the above-described counterparts, but over the entire lifetime will completely fulfill its function. The main advantages of the supports of the bars is the ease of creating, low cost starting material and need only the simplest tool.

The bars are fastened to each other using small screws or nails. The angles are not scratching the bark of branches, they can grind off a file or podtesat ax.
