You bet Pete! Netting isn't the place to go cheapo. I have one large one 
with 1/4 inch rather than 1/2 mesh. There is a world of difference in the two 
when pulling over a tree or bush. Branch ends and fruit such as cherries 
don't get caught and tear the netting nearly as quickly as with 1/2 mesh. Don't 
remember where I got mine but will never again buy 1/2 inch mesh netting. 

My advise is spend the extra money. Makes covering much easier and will 
last longer.
