You can use furring nails or more modern equipment as we have been doing for forty years, ‘Staples’ using an air-powered staple lath gun, remember, 7/8 of the leg has got to be embedded into the stud, which usually means with plywood sheathing your best bet is to buy inch and a quarter crown staples with a width or crown of one inch to keep up with current inspections or codes.

For stucco nettings, it’s been proven by the smartest engineers that for the absolute best results to use either a 17 or 18 gauge stucco netting.
Chicken wire, for example, 20 gauge wire/stucco netting, is much thinner. It’s great for chicken coops to have a chicken coop that holds about 10 chickens.
This same 20 gauge wire/stucco netting can be used for setting tile grout for countertops.
I have seen many types of metal netting used for stucco, including chain link fencing.
Stucco netting comes in rolls, where the metal lath your referring to comes in sheets; these sheets are primarily used for ceilings as the holes are tiny.
Thus sticky and rich stucco will defy gravity and hang when mixed and applied correctly.
