string will work, if you can keep it nice and tight,
have you made the screen frame with adjustable hight legs ?
keep the screen low to start with as it's easy to move them up but not so easy to move them down.

buy balers twine to, or some sort of heavy-ish string.
also buy 4 elbow joints, that fit the inner diameter of your pvc piping.
-drill along the pipe every 2" on all pieces of pipe.
-connect into square using elbows. (its ok if its slightly floppy at this point)
-weave the twine/string through. use an "over under" pattern when doing the second half of the weaving.(pull the string good and tight before you tie it off, if done right it will pull your screen into a rigid position.

Do you guys using PVC hang your screen, or build them with legs?
the way i built mine was for a 2x2 tent...I made my pieces 2x2 but did a dry run with out the screen weaved. this way i could cut it out how i wanted so that put in place it would have the armpit of the corners on the outside of the tent poles.

So my frame is made out of wood I've been waiting to put the legs on it but I was thinking it should be about 2 and a half feet .... My tallest plant is about 3 feet but all the other are about a foot .... How tall should I make the screen .?.?.?...... and I was thinking of using a galvanized wire fence if I can find one .... The ones in home depot are like 60 for like 70 feet which are the cheapest ......
Depends, is the 3 foot tall lanky an bendy? Could you mash the screen down that far? It depends on how much height you have in your grow space. You can also just raise the other plants.
