    I think I like the large planter/urn idea. Home Depot gets some really
    neat extremely large heavy ones, so I won't have to worry about them
    tipping over. I need to find out about what materials are safe for
    them though. My main concern is what they are coated in, so I will be
    doing research on that. I got some samples on the netting, and it is
    extremely heavy, and the type zoos use in aviaries for large birds of
    prey. It is very tough yet still has a little give to it, so if the
    birds should hit it, it has some give to it. This company will
    actually build the net, so it will just pull over the structure, in one
    piece, besides the doors and the divider, and they put on a binding
    around the edges for added stability. This is going to be a fun
    project!
