Looking for ideas for venting a leaf box, that is easy to install and works well. Thanks
What is your current leaf box constructed of? If it is metal you can easily weld in a piece of expanded metal with a 1/4 inch grating. That is what I'm using and it seems to work fine so far. If it is wood you could use the tarps that everyone else uses.
My box is 13.5' in length. I am thinking of tacking down a mesh tarp with 2" slats of wood completely around the top border of the box and round the edges.
The box is mounted on a dump trailer and is made out of plywood. I was thinking of using a apinters tarp for a section of the top.
Try a mesh wire. Just tack it down with a staple gun, or put wood around it.
I had a roll of it, not sure what it's called. Like 1/4'' holes.
thats what I used, believe its for doing cement work, like to put texured paint on a basement wall. You can get it at HD.
Last spring I used a mesh tarp used for covering trees while transporting them. It worked well other than being too short and leaking around the top where there was not a good seal.
:blob3: i use soffit vents cut in every 2 feet along the top edge of the roof on both sides works very well. my leaves fall out in a 12" tightly packed block. tony
Buy this mesh tarp and you will be fine. Lets plenty of air out and the holes aren't too big. You don't want to use anything where leaf particles will be flying out. Just air.
