Easy to Work With more Expensive

I had an above ground garden that my wife and I used to grow a lot of different vegetables in. The rabbits, opossums, and skunks would raid the plants so I built a short fence enclosure (2.5 feet high) around it. Over time we have slowed to only tomato plants now. Every year the birds would take a few pecks or bites from the vine ripened tomatoes and ruin them. We had to pick the tomatoes while they were green and let them ripen on the kitchen counter top. This year I decided to enclose it with netting. I have used the "extruded" netting before and it is very frustrating because it clings or hangs up on just about every thing that it come in contact with. So I wasn't looking forward to working with it. I shopped around and found this 16' x 20' net on Google search. For some reason it did not come up on a general net search on Amazon, so I ended up finding it afterwards and bought from Garden and Pond Depot with the Google search; same price.
It is "woven" and not "extruded". It is a lot easier to work with than the extruded as it does not catch and hang on every little snag. I believe it will last longer than the extruded net. As you can see in the photos with my hand one edge is sewn off while the other is cut and raw. One cut edge had a "V" defect in it and I was able to sew it back together with needle and thread. I cut 3/8" wooden slats to weave in and out of the holes then pneumatically stapled the slats to the existing frame. I used para-cord stretched between 2' x 2' board uprights to support the roof of the net. I am concerned about the shade factor. I hope the shade made by the netting does not affect the growth of the tomato plants.
Another problem I had with the extruded net in the past is that the small lizards that abound in our yard get twisted up in the netting and die a slow starvation death.
As to expense the size I got was 16' x 20' for $49, and the Dalen (extruded net) 28' x 28' is $25. Even though Green Vista is listed as 16' x 20' is stretches (unlike extruded) approximately 20% more in each direction. So I believe the relaxed (just laying on the floor) measurement is 16' x 20'. It does not unravel.
I copied and pasted this review in Amazon,but with photos
Exactly as described

I was completely satisfied with this netting. It is very strong and easy to work with. It was delivered quickly in good packing.
