Indoor Basketball Nets, Court Divider Netting

Gourock.com supplies divider and barrier nets for many gymnasiums and basketball courts.  Popular uses for netting installations in a court or gym environment are as divider panels between different game or practice areas, as barrier nets to contain basketballs within specific court areas, and protective nets to block lights, scoreboard, and spectator spaces from errant shots or rolling balls.  Many of our customers that require basketball court divider nets are scholastic or municipal applications, and there are also many colleges, professional, and commercial facilities that need barrier nets and protective netting as well.

Because the netting available from Gourock.com is custom prepared per-order, you can get very specifically made nets that will fit your particular area - according to your own particular sizes.  We use the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, which has many great benefits for indoor basketball court divider net installations.  The custom nylon nets from Gourock.com are:

  • prepared to your own specific sizes
  • very strong and dependable for longterm usage
  • lightweight and very user-friendly
  • available in a variety of mesh size and twine thickness combinations to best suit your preferences and barrier requirements
  • manufactured and shipped promptly with short lead-times and delivery right to your preferred location
  • perfect for all commercial, professional, scholastic, municipal, and residential installations
There are a couple of most typical and popular mesh sizes for basketball barrier nets from Gourock, which are the 1-3/4" mesh size, and the larger 4" mesh size.  We supply these netting productions built per-order to whatever dimensions you need for the job, and they are readily available to view, price, and order right through Gourock's Online Netting Calculator:

Gourock also has the ability to incorporate very customized features into the netting productions as well, aside from the sizing availability.  For instance, many times for commercial installations there are considerations for entrance or door areas, and also for particular edging or bordering characteristics that would benefit the installation approach.  Here is a helpful example from one of our professional commercial training facility customers, Shoot360.  Shoot360 is a high-end basketball training business that offers a very modern basketball training program.  The nylon barrier and divider nets that we build and ship for Shoot360 locations feature:
  • professional-grade #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting
  • square mesh pattern nets, black in coloring
  • webbing and grommet edges, along with selective edges incorporating 5/16" braided polyester rope borders
  • specifically sized netting panels to line-up with the necessary training and court areas within the overall gymnasium
  • specifically located door/entrance areas in order to pass-through the divider nets from one training area to another
Most barrier nets and divider nets are installed using a cable-suspension method of hanging the netting.  This generally entails installing a series of tensioned wires/cables between walls or supports, and then clipping the netting to the cables using carabiner-style snap-hooks.  You can essentially view this technique as an "industrial curtain" approach.

As you can see from the example photos below, the Shoot360 nets also use the cable-suspension approach of netting installation.  From the example photos, you can also see what the sizing needs are, the incorporated door/entrance features, and also where the different types of border edges were sewn-in and located.  Should you have some specific features or details that you're interested in, feel free to contact Gourock.com and we can take a look at what you are aiming for, and submit a quote for the production and netting that we can prepare and supply for you.

Commercial Professional Batting Cage Nets, Custom Sizes and Features

For many years Gourock has been the professional and commercial source for high-end custom batting cage netting enclosures, for both full-time outdoor and indoor training facilities and organizations.  Built from very high quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, 100% fabricated in the USA, Gourock.com can supply your professional and commercial establishment with customized batting cage nets and netting enclosures that are fabricated to your own preferred sizing and with additional custom features or additions that you may need.  The nylon batting cage nets that we produce are installed at baseball and softball training facilities, university and scholastic baseball and softball facilities, professional baseball stadiums, commercial sports training and batting cage installations, and many other high-abrasion and high-traffic sports facilities that require netting.

For commercial baseball and softball batting cage netting and impact netting installations, the recommended twine and mesh selections are the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, and the thicker #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon.  Both are the DuPont® material, black in coloring, and have high tensile strength ratings and abrasion resistance.  The #36 nylon is a 2.5mm twine thickness with a 381 lb. tensile rating (breaking strength per twine).  The heavier option is the #72 with the 3.5mm twine thickness and 740 lb. tensile rating.  At Gourock.com you have the option to have batting cage netting enclosures produced to any dimensions that you need - and the Online Netting Calculator allows you to enter the height, width, and length preferred:

Many sports training facilities also have more customized requirements as well, in addition to needing specific dimensions and sizes.  For instance, many batting cage nets that are being installed for team training or commercial uses need to incorporate entrance doors located at particular areas of the netting.  Other times, the netting design is built with angles, tapers, or notches in-order to correctly fit specific spaces, rooflines, walls, or framing design details.  Other popular custom design features include additional ceiling line ropes and additions of separate divider panel nets.

Gourock supplies custom nylon netting productions that are built per-order, from 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship.  Feel free to contact Gourock.com with requests on netting production availability and we can take a look at your request and quote some custom netting options for you.

Here are a couple of examples of commercial batting cage nets that were produced and shipped out in the last few weeks that incorporate many customized netting designs and requested custom features.  

EXAMPLE 1:
This custom batting cage net was built for a commercial baseball batting and training facility in South Plainfield, New Jersey.  It is an indoor installation that has a high-traffic consideration, so the material used for the job was the #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  This netting production has many customized design features, including:

  • tapered shape and sizing needs
  • notched end-panel construction to line-up with a fence/wall
  • extra ceiling line ropes
  • secondary double-layers of reinforcement netting built-in to both side wall
  • secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the ceiling

EXAMPLE 2:
This custom batting cage net was built for an baseball organization in Chicago, Illinois.  This enclosure netting is being used as a batting cage hitting and training area for team and league practice purposes, and features the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  This net also incorporates some more highly-customized characteristics, including:
  • extra wide width requirements
  • secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the ceiling
This production was designed, quoted, fabricated, and shipped in 2.5 business weeks.  Here is the production drawing of this custom batting cage netting production that will help show the different construction and design features incorporated in this net:

Custom Golf Netting Enclosure for Training Facility

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting that is used for a wide variety of applications and customers, and over the years there have been hundreds of customized golf nets produced and shipped out.  Whether your project calls for a private use net at your home, a large commercial-style net for your business or organization, or most any type of usage in-between, Gourock.com has supplied it.  The ability to have customized netting productions built to your own preferred sizing and dimensions is a huge benefit when it comes down to planning around unique spaces, rooms and buildings, and for intended areas both very large and very small.

3/4" mesh size DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting is the high-quality netting material that we specialize in, and it is a netting selection that is 100% Made in the USA and prepared per-invoice for your particular order and size/design requirements.  Nylon is a very strong and durable material that features a high abrasion resistance and high tensile rating, while remaining relatively light in actual physical weight.  These characteristics make it a premium choice for golf impact netting applications, including golf hitting nets, golf cage enclosure nets, and customized golf ball containment nets.  Generally speaking, Gourock.com has two different twine thicknesses available to select for your golf netting project, which are a thicker #21 (2.0mm) twine and a lighter/thinner #15 (1.8mm) twine.  The #21 is most recommended for primary golf ball impact areas and areas of high abrasion and usage/friction, whereas the #15 does block and contain directly driven shots but is more typical for general containment nets to keep errant shots from leaving a particular area.

At the Gourock site we offer an Online Custom Netting Calculator that allows you to have golf cage nets built to your own preferred custom dimensions.  Simply determine what height, width, and depth that you prefer to work with and install - and we can produce that finished netting product for you and ship it to your location.  Both the #15 and #21 twine thickness knotted nylon netting options are available to select from, and then you can also choose to have a secondary layer of impact netting included as well (separately) that is used to "double-layer" the entire back end panel of the netting enclosure.  The secondary impact netting layers are always built from the thicker #21 twine thickness nylon netting, and the golf cage enclosure nets are built with the sides, the top/ceiling, and the back end nets all seamed together with rope bordering (the front end is "open" to be hitting/driving from).

Custom golf cage nets are a very popular netting construction supplied by Gourock for all types of unique clients.  Many people have particular areas of their homes or properties that require more customized netting builds, and also there are many pro-shops and country clubs that have the same needs for their businesses and players.  Major universities, industrial and commercial clients, and schools/municipalities/organizations also have their custom golf cage nets produced and supplied by Gourock.  The materials that we use are very well prepared for both outdoor and indoor installations - so there are lots of instances where the netting spends part of the year outdoors and then part of the year indoors (for the winter).

The 3/4" mesh twisted-knotted nylon netting that we supply for customized golf cage installations is really functional and user-friendly, so that it hangs very well within framing structures or tensioned cabling setups.  
Here is an example of a custom golf cage net that was custom-built and shipped out to a commercial training facility customer of ours.  The material is completely #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, and there was a bit of 'extra' customization requested for the manufacturing design which is an additional rope ceiling line located on the top of the enclosure net.  This net is hanging from a series of hooks and clips that extend down from their ceiling (their own design).  Overall netting sizing on this one was 12'-8" high X 15'-11" wide X 25' long.  The secondary impact panel net was also ordered and supplied.

Driveway Basketball Barrier Netting - Customer Photos

Many people have basketball hoops and shooting areas on their residential driveways, and for many different reasons they need to barricade and contain the balls within the surrounding space.  Not only does chasing missed shots and rolling balls waste a lot of time and energy, it also become pretty tedious as well!  Especially considering a lot of the driveway basketball practice areas are close to hills, woods, ravines, other buildings and structures, streams and ponds, and of course roads and traffic.

A great solution to alleviate the inconveniences of chasing arrant basketballs is to use a barrier netting setup around the playing area.  Gourock.com supplies netting that works perfectly for this use, and there are numerous different options to consider hanging up.  Most typical for larger object containment (basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc.) is the 4" mesh knotted nylon netting.  For people that want to block larger objects as well some smaller balls as well (tennis, baseball, street hockey, softball, etc.) there is the 1-3/4" mesh knotted nylon netting that is fantastic to go with.  The nylon netting available from Gourock.com is 100% made in the USA, prepared per-order according to your own preferred custom dimensions, and is a very high-quality durable netting option for longterm installations.  You can take a look at these nets at this page of the Gourock website - and free netting samples are also available to mail out if requested.

Below are 4 photos that were forwarded to us from a recent customer that hung the nylon barrier netting around 3 sides of his backyard court area using the In-Ground Steel Poles that we also have available.  The netting he selected was the multipurpose #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting, square mesh pattern with a rope bordering, in the dimensions of 10' X 70'.  He then used a series of the In-Ground Steel Poles and Sleeves spaced around the perimeter area to hang the netting from, and used Gourock Bungee Ball Straps to adjust the fit and tension of the netting to match his preferences.

As you can see, the black nylon netting and the black poles do a fantastic job of blending-into the background environment, which keeps the overall installation as minimally visible as possible.  And of course, the nylon netting and poles are designed to be durable and dependable for many years of consistent use and exposure.

This is a great-looking installation and court Bryan!  Thank you again very much - we appreciate it!

Basketball Barrier Net with Poles - Customer Photos

Gourock.com supplies many different nets for customers that seek solutions to barricade and block basketballs within their practice area.  Using a basketball barrier netting setup at your location has many advantages over time, since you won't waste much time or energy chasing missed shots and errant balls.  In addition, there are a lot of general safety enhancements as well, considering that rolling basketballs may potentially enter a high traffic area, or wooded areas that may have situations with poison ivy, ticks, or other similar avoidances.

We have many options available to consider for the barrier netting used for basketball applications, both for private residential properties as well as for commercial, municipal, and organizational purposes.  One recent customer of ours sent over a couple photos of his basketball netting setup that he installed at his house.  His hoop and court area had a corner and a back-end that he needed to block errant balls from passing through, since there was a neighbor's fence on one side to avoid damaging, and then a small hill that caused the balls to roll an unnecessary distance from the court.  His preference was a netting solution that would be dependably durable over time, but also be as minimally visible as possible.  The best product match for his use was the #15 X 4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, black color, square mesh with a rope bordering around the perimeter edges.

The #15 X 4" nylon netting is the best selection because it has a larger mesh size of 4" square, making it great for large objects like basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs.  Also, it has a thin twine thickness of 1.8mm.  So combining those 2 characteristics means that you have the largest mesh size option possible, made from the thinnest twine thickness available, which very much minimizes the overall amount of netting material within the entire area.  That makes it as "invisible" as can expected, but at the same time it retains a high durability due to the high tensile strength characteristic of nylon material.  The #15 is only 1.8mm thick, but has a tensile rating (breaking strength) of 144 lb./twine.  Very strong, very lightweight, and very dependable for basketball barrier nets.  100% Made in USA.

Our customer also utilized the In-Ground Steel Poles that we have available at gourock.com to purchase.  He used a series of our poles, in conjunction with some of our Bungee Ball Straps, to get a very even and taught netting appearance throughout the entire area.  These are also great to moderate the amount of netting displacement, movement, and reaction to wind.

Here are a couple of photos submitted to us demonstrating the finished product and installation.

It looks really great John!!  Thanks again very much, we appreciate your business and feedback!!

Indoor Baseball & Sports Facility Netting Installation

Gourock.com supplies custom netting for many different types of indoor installations and uses.  There are many types of clients and customers that source custom netting solutions for indoor sports training needs, including:
  • commercial sports training organizations
  • collegiate and university installations
  • professional teams and stadiums
  • sports and physical therapy establishments
  • personal and private residential training applications
  • municipal and scholastic team/club uses
Indoor baseball facilities generally require a variety of different netting solutions to fulfill the needs of the establishment - and in many instances the best approach is to install a 3-dimensional netting enclosure.  Netting enclosures incorporate a design that has both ends, both sides, and the entire top/ceiling mesh seamed together - meant to keep all balls and objects that are within the enclosed area properly contained in the space.  A very commonplace type of baseball product that is a netting enclosure is a batting cage net.  Gourock.com supplies enclosures and batting cage nets that are custom-built according to most any particular dimensions that you require for your space.  Custom combinations of height, width, and length can be easily prices and ordered directly through Gourock's Custom Batting Cage Calculator.

Most larger commercial and collegiate/professional baseball and softball indoor netting installations have the goal of enclosing relatively large areas and volumes within netting.  This allows facility organizers, manager, and owners to have a large space available to train in, while containing baseballs and softballs in a designated area - away from walls, lights, and visitor/general-public zones.  And in addition, many facility organizers also use a series of separate divider nets to slide back-and-forth within the larger netting enclosure - which breaks the larger space into smaller individual tunnel areas and hitting/pitching/training areas.  Gourock.com includes the option to add separate divider panel nets to custom batting cage nets as you continue through the Online Custom Batting Cage Calculator.

Using the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, 100% Made in the USA, the custom batting cage nets available through Gourock.com are hand-built per-order by professional craftsman with dozens of years of net construction experience.  Very well prepared for outdoor installations (all materials are black UV Stabilized and Latex/Urethane Bonded) as well as for all indoor usage as well - generally any sizing at all can be produced for your particular needs.  Fast turnaround times on custom netting productions, and shipment/delivery options to anywhere.

Indoor netting installations almost always use a hanging approach that uses a series of tensioned cables/wires that stretch across the facility area - and then the netting clips underneath the cabling to suspend it off the ground.  This approach for hanging the netting also allows for the netting to be slid back-and-forth on the wires/cables "curtain-style", which is a very helpful feature to efficiently move the netting out of the way as needed (for maintenance, alternative building spaces uses, storage, etc.). We have provided much information over the years on how this installation approach can be undertaken, and here are some previous blog article and site links that will provide great context about cable suspension techniques:

A recent commercial sports and baseball facility in Ontario, Canada installed an indoor netting enclosure and divider net at their location.  This was a customized netting build that was manufactured to their own personal preferences on sizing and netting twine/mesh, along with the inclusion of top-rope ceiling lines (to line up with hanging cables) and separate divider panel nets.  This facility also utilized 3/16" Aircraft Cabling hardware items and snap-hooks to suspend the enclosure netting at their preferred height - as well as running separate cables for the individual divider panel nets.  Every facility and installation is a unique project, and here is a series of photos of this establishments' installation job, which provides some great general context into how you can go about something very similar at your own indoor sports facility.

Nylon Netting Used For ATV Dog Containment - customer photos

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting materials, prepared per-order according to your own specified sizing and finishing preferences.  A great characteristic of the custom nylon and polyester netting options available through the Gourock site is the multipurpose flexibility they offer for a very wide variety of unique and personalized applications.  There are quite a few selections available to consider, with a variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses - all of which are readily ordered to your own custom dimensions directly through the Gourock.com site:
http://www.gourock.com/netting_types.html

One of the netting options that we have available that is very popular for multipurpose and more uniquely specialized projects is the 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting.  This is a netting construction that features:

  • braided-knotless mesh construction
  • 1" square mesh size
  • twine thickness of #26 (209 lb./tensile rating)
  • UV stabilization and urethane bonding
  • a variety of coloring options: black, white, blue, tan, grey, yellow, orange, magenta/red
  • available to order according to any dimensions you prefer
It's a very user-friendly netting to work with, and can be prepared for you with a rope bordering sewn-in around the edges, or with a 1-1/2" webbing/grommeted border, or as sections of bulk mesh.  The 1" mesh size is very applicable for a wide-range of uses (it's a very multipurpose mesh size), and the different coloring options make it attractive for different aesthetic characteristics that may be preferred for the overall project.  It features a moderately thick twine size that has a very high abrasion resistance along with high tensile strength rating, making it a very dependable and durable netting selection without being overly thick/heavy while at the same time not being a lightweight material either.  In addition to those intrinsic attributes, the braided-knotless nylon netting is a "fabric-like" material - so many people find it a very adaptable mesh that can mold/wrap/adjust around odd-shaped spaces and/or structures.

Gourock.com often supplies custom netting for pet and animal barrier uses, especially for dogs.  Many times the dog barrier netting is blocking off a loft area, doorways, railings, or decks/patios.  Gourock also supplies netting that is applied to various different types of transportation vehicles for different uses, including for boats, trucks, trailers, and passenger cars.  
A recent Gourock netting customer had a need for barrier netting that was to be used for both of these uses - he had a side-by-side ATV that he often operated with his Golden Retriever riding in back, and needed to dependably contain his dog within the ATV while driving.  The 1" knotless nylon netting was a great selection for his use, since the preference was for a strong pliable netting material with a mesh size that was small enough to avoid paws going "though" the netting, as well as having a bright color for both visibility and also aesthetic.

He opted for a bulk mesh section of orange-colored 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting, so that he could use that material to layer around his ATV where needed, and then cut/trim to shape on his own while working with it.  In this case it was a 4'-6" X 22' section of netting, in order to have enough material to work with, along with having some excess mesh to hold on the side for future uses or additions if needed.  Also ordered was a 100' length of the black braided-polyester rope that we supply, which is the same rope that is used on netting productions that have the rope already sewn-in around the perimeter of the mesh.  This bulk length of rope was used by him to weave/lace through the edges of his personally cut/trimmed netting in order to reinforce the edges and provide a nice strong/durable material to attach the netting to the framing of the ATV.  He used bungee cord materials (like the Bungee Balls available from Gourock) to actually connect the netting to his side-by-side, which are convenient because they add a bit of tension/tightness to the overall installation of the netting, and are efficiently removed if needed for instances where the netting may need to come off of the vehicle for storage or in periods of non-use.

Here are some photos that were provided to use from our customer, and they are quite helpful to get a good look at how the nylon netting available from Gourock.com can be used for very unique and personalized projects that not only function with the highest expectation of durability, but also look really good too!

Thank you again Tom - great job, and we appreciate it very much!

Drone Netting Installation at 2017 CES Tradeshow

Gourock.com supplies netting for many different types of drone and U.A.V. applications, and we have 4 particularly popular and recommended netting options available on the site for your consideration:
http://www.gourock.com/drone-netting-uav-nets.html

Drone netting that is supplied by Gourock is available to be ordered to most any specific widths and lengths that you require for your installation - and you can order it as "bulk mesh" material (netting-only, without any sort of finishing border), or as a finished netting panel that features a 5/16" braided polyester rope sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The 4 netting recommendations on the Gourock.com site for drone nets and U.A.V. nets feature 2 mesh sizes:  1-3/4" and a larger 4" mesh.  And then each mesh size also has a thinner and thicker twine option available to consider.  So what this means is that depending on your particular drone application you have the option to go with something that is lightweight and as 'invisible' as possible, or for material that has extra thickness for increase expectations of abrasion and exposure to the elements.  No matter which netting type is selected, you can expect very high durability and dependability with a great ease-of-use.

Gourock.com specializes in supplying drone nets that are fabricated with high-end DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon.  This netting material has exceedingly strong tensile ratings, is UV stabilized and latex/urethane bonded against the elements, and is available to be built to most any custom sizing that is required for your application and installation project.  Drone nets are used for a pretty diverse range of users, including:

  • university and laboratory research
  • commercial drone-racing
  • airports and bases
  • government and military
  • trade shows and conventions
This past December we had posted an article regarding some very customized drone netting panels that were used for a vendor installation at the 2017 CES trade show in Las Vegas.  For some information on the netting type and design, you can refer to that previous article here: http://netting-gourock.blogspot.com/2016/12/drone-uav-netting-for-trade-shows.html

Here are some photos from the actual installation at the show, which provide great context into how that overall netting supply ended up - and you can use the netting supplied by Gourock for your own drone and U.A.V. barrier netting requirements.  The online shopping cart allows for very efficient and simple ordering of any 2-dimensional (square/rectangular) netting sizes and shapes that you need, as you type-in your sizes right into the Custom Netting Calculator.  But in addition to that, we also supply very specialized tapered shapes and designs as well - which are built to your particular needs.  For example, the nets used for this CES installation for instance.  In that case, simply drop a line through Gourock's contact page and you can request a quotation from us (and you have the opportunity to upload files as well).

Deer and Chicken Barrier Netting - Customer Photo

The netting options supplied by Gourock.com are used for a huge variety of different applications and uses, throughout many industries and users.  A couple of very popular product purposes are deer barrier netting, and bird/poultry barrier nets.

For deer barrier netting, the lighter-weight nylon nets with the larger mesh sizes are the most popular, functional, and recommended.  So the two selections that fulfill most all deer barrier netting orders are the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and the #12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  We supply these options according to most any dimensions you need, and they are composed of the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 nylon.  100% Made in the USA, these nylon netting types maintain a very higher tensile strength rating while featuring the benefits of a relatively thin twine thickness.  This means you get a very strong and durable netting, while minimizing weight, visibility, effect of wind/elements, and cost.  The Gourock site does provide a deer netting specific page to reference, and it allows for the pricing/ordering of any sizing you need:
http://www.gourock.com/deer-net-calculator.html

Bird barrier netting is quite diverse across the board, and there are many different recommended netting types and configurations based on the particular installation/customer.  Bird barrier netting is used at 

  • industrial locations
  • warehouses and hangars
  • zoos and aviaries
  • private residences
  • farms
  • landfill and recycling centers
  • mining and petroleum operations
  • stadiums
  • shops and markets
  • municipal and scholastic locations, as well as
  • many more unique and diverse environments


Gourock.com does bird exclusion nets in nearly every sizing imaginable, ranging from hundreds of feet for commercial clients, to small lengths and areas for private home users.  Just like the deer netting noted above, the Gourock site also has a dedicated page specific to bird netting options as well:
http://www.gourock.com/bird-netting.html

Deer and bird barrier netting are equally popular in both rural and urban environments, as both types of living areas have their own individual concerns with deer and birds.  A recent local customer here in Bellingham has a chicken coop and garden, and also a big need for both types of animal exclusion. For the deer netting, the primary purpose is to block-off the entire surrounding area to keep them from entering the garden area entirely.  And for the chickens, the surrounding deer barrier nets keep them contained within the overall space as well.  But in addition to that, we have a lot of predatory birds here in Bellingham, primarily eagles and hawks.  This customer, like many others in the same situation, require a bird exclusion netting to cover the top of the chicken coop area to keep the predatory falcons out.

Here is a provided photo of the garden/coop and the netting he installed.  The surrounding deer barrier net is the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and it is suspended and hung between a series of general in-ground fence posts.  He used a spool of the #60 nylon twine to weave/lace through the top meshes of the netting, acting as a nice support and border for overall length of net.
The bird netting cover over the top is from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  At Gourock.com we can supply either of these particular netting types according to your preferred dimensions - no problem at all.

Looks really great Pat - thank you again!
