    Our run is ~600' of fence line and is irregular in shape. Any ideas for covering it?

    It is also not aesthetically pleasing. We have irregular sections in our yard that we have successfully covered with fishing line. You cannot even see the line unless you are really really close, or a branch falls and is hanging from the line. It is high enough that you can walk underneath. We did this by using 8ft fence panels wherever we needed a support. The middle is centered and anchored in the high branch of a pine tree, but I imagine a flagpole could do the same thing.
