paint my hoops?

paint my hoops? Empty paint my hoops?

Post  jazzymaddy 3/31/2011, 8:20 pm

I'm getting ready to build my hoop cover, and had the thought to spray paint the PVC black so as to be less noticable from the street (HOA concerns). Should I be concerned with the paint leeching into the soil? I suppose I could paint just the part that would NOT be in the ground.

And what about paint on a trellis?

Thanks,
Tracy

I don't know that I would be concerned about it leeching into the soil as long as you allow it to dry completely. But, I'm not a chemist, either. If spray paint can stand the rain when it's on your chair, I imagine it can stand the rain on your hoops, too.

Oh, the paint would just be for the pipes. I also intend to use my hoops as support for deer netting for the critters, so they will be a fairly permant fixture in my garden.

Oh, I didn't read the end of your response. Sorry. Smile

I spray painted the conduit for my trellis for the same reason. I have a black metal fence and I thought it would just look nicer and more "finished" to have the trellis match. I was also thinking about doing the hoops but I haven't done so yet.

I wouldn't worry about the soil as long as you let the paint dry and cure, but that's just me.

Jazzy,

Regarding HOA concerns....

Share a piece of the harvest with the HOA board members at your next local meeting. Supply them with a yummy homegrown salad and perhaps those concerns will melt away as quickly as the food.

No....of course not dear board members, I'm not trying to bribe you...... Wink
