Starter kit for a king diamond espalier installation
With this kit you will get all the components you require to install a diamond patterned espalier set-up as shown in the diagram below. (Wire not included) This creates a stylish pattern when growing with vines such as star jasmine, clematis or bougainvillea. Ideal to turn a wall or fence into a growing work of art. This system can be used for fixing onto timber fences, concrete block or brick substrates using screw plugs. Use either AWG 12 (2 mm) stainless steel wire rope or AWG 12 (2 mm) soft wire.
CAUTION : DO NOT FORCE WIRE THROUGH ANCHOR
Gently insert wire using back and forth motion until wire slides comfortably between the locking jaws.
How to extend the Diamond Pattern King Kit
The only tools you will require to complete this job are a power drill with a hex driver bit, 1/8 in (3 mm) drill bit, pop rivet gun and quality wire cutters.
Plan your job carefully – this set up uses 2 runs of wire. Measure and markout your mounting points – note that the distance between these points should be equal for both vertical and horizontal.
Fix the anchor platforms in place at each corner ensuring that they are set at a 45° angle.
Fix the radial wire guides at the intermediate positions – the guide should be vertical and horizontal as shown in corresponding position on the diagram. Also ensure the guide is the correct way around – one end has a groove for the wire to follow.
For the first wire run – insert wire through anchor platform and into Espalar anchor to hold in place. Note caution above.
Uncoil wire an feed through radial wire guides to the end point following the numbers on the above diagram.
Fit Espalar anchor at end point then tension wire with pop rivet gun. Trim wire and fit caps at both ends.
Follow the process for the other run to complete your diamond pattern installation.
