I have netting & frame for 4ft x 12ft raised beds any tips if attaching the bottom of the netting which will give me easy access to get at the plants?

Was thinking lengths of wood screwed to beds for ends that are permanent but need ideas for easy removal for access.

I just use bricks, but my raised bed sides are railway sleeper size, so plenty of room.

Battens wrapped into the bottom of the net and resting on the top of te raised bed.
Just lift the batten for access.

I made frames out of 2 x 1 inch timber I stapled the netting onto the frame then lifted on and off as required only problem was it was a 2 person job to lift off mainly the two four feet high ones ,it was ok at first but as my wife got weaker with illness it was impossible to do ,my mate copied my idea but he made his in two halves one slightly bigger than the other and laps them by about six inches these seem to work ok
