I painted my hardware cloth yesterday. I used a 4" roller and black Rustoleum paint, and laid each section (pre-installation) out in the driveway, on an old white sheet (to protect the driveway) and started roll, roll, rolling away. I kept missing spots. Then the lightbulb went off over my head! I got out my BLACK tarp and tried again. Against the black, I could see every spot I missed. DUH! Just thought I'd share!
