15+ Ways To Make A Trellis
Posted By Tipnut On March 18, 2011 @ 8:01 am In DIY Projects,Green Thumb Projects,Outdoors | 6 Comments
Here’s a bunch of ways you can make trellises for both vegetable gardens and flower beds, many are simple in design (and to make) while others are more detailed and fancy (with a bit of woodworking skill required). Quite a selection of materials used such as bamboo, wooden poles and sticks, lumber, wire mesh, etc. A couple of the projects below have been featured previously on Tipnut and moved here for better organization. Enjoy!
Wood A-Frame : With some plywood, hardware cloth, fasteners, basic tools, and a little time, you can fashion a hinged A-frame trellis to support peas, beans, tomatoes, or other vining plants.
DIY Bamboo Project : Made with several canes of bamboo in different diameters and lashing cord.
Rustic Design : Simple project made from prunings or substitute 1-by-1 stakes from the nursery or lumberyard. The finished structure is 7 feet 4 1/2 inches tall and 3 feet wide.
For Roses : The instructions are for an eight-by-four-foot trellis with a three-quarter-inch thickness, the strips of wood are spaced three inches apart.
Rustic Ti-pi Tutorial : Made with three to six poles, 1 1/2″ to 2 1/2″ in diameter and 4′ to 7′ long, copper or galvanized steel wire and grapevines or flexible willow branches.
Bamboo & String Tee-Pee : Made to accommodate peas and cucumbers using scrap bamboo sticks tied together with cotton string.
Freestanding : Ideal for climbing flowers and plants, finished size measures 3′ wide x 18″ deep x 6’3″ tall. Skill level: Intermediate.
Decorative Wire : Wire fencing is cut to length, rolled then painted metal straps are attached with 18-gauge wire.
It is soft and doesn’t cut in. Can be taken up and used for a long time.
Clean and paint before storing away for fall.
