PVC will work but you may need schedule 80 for it to be stiff enough not to sag over a 10 foot span…or have middle bracing. I use a fairly heavy “bird” netting over the top my 12’ wide blueberry patch and it is held up with schedule 40 PVC with a center support. It goes us seasonally because if we get a winter snow or ice storm the weight would collapse it.

With netting you can “sew” it on to the pipe or poles. Just loop it around and stitch away. For wire there are aluminum wire cage “c” clips similar to upholstery clips only wider that work great. Most farm supply hardware stores have them. You will need the proper pliers to crimp them closed. I have used them to put chicken wire on hog and cattle fencing panels.
