How to Build Garden Trellis


A Redwood Garden Trellis

What better way to create a natural privacy screen than a classy wood trellis covered by a flowering vine?

Trellises come in many shapes and sizes but few have withstood the test of time like the traditional fan trellis design.

This unique fan trellis features two legs that provide much more stability and strength during strong winds than single leg designs. The simple lines of this project will always be in style and it's simplicity makes building trellises an easy beginner's project.

Many vegetable plants as well as many flowering vines need a sturdy trellis for support. You can save a lot of space when you grow your cucumbers, peas, and beans with a trellis. Not only do trellises save space, they help keep the plants and vegetables off the ground. Not just vegetables, but many flowering plants grow best on a trellis. Some of the most beautiful flowering vines like Mandevilla, Clematis, Cardnial vines, and Morning Glories are much more attractive and manageable when grown on a trellis.
