I use the cheaper 5 foot concrete mesh. Instead of placing the cage on the ground, I wire it about a foot up off the ground, using a single T post as support for each cage. This serves to keep the bottom wire from rusting thru over time as well as extending the cage up to 6 foot. Cages are zip tied one-to-the-next in the row, giving a plant spacing of about 2.5 feet. One T post and two zip ties provides three very sturdy anchor points for each cage.
