DIY Garden Trellis for Climbing Plants.

It is officially gardening season. The long awaited Winter has passed and if you are anything like me then you are deep into the those garden plans. I had a jump on the season with these trellis’s. I am the proud builder of four total in my gardens so far. With them I have planted several climbing roses, Sweet Peas and a deep ruby red Clemantis that is a bit of a slow grower but her blooms are worth the wait. As they say in gardening that we work for next year. That this is a marathon and not a sprint. And although it can be hard to wait, the payoff is great.

I managed to put these up on my own, however I don’t recommend you do. I am just an impatient person and overly determined at times. If you can get an extra person and you will have these up with minimal effort. And even better, the possibility of injury will be greatly reduced.

What You’ll Need To Make a DIY Garden Trellis for Climbing Plants:

Post Driver (or mallet hammer works too)

1 cattle or hog 16 ft panel

4- 4 ft tposts.

zip ties

Getting Started:

Pick the location for the trellis making sure that it is free of tree roots or uneven soil. Taking the post driver, drive in a tpost on the edge of where the trellis edge will be.

Drive another about 3 ft from it on the same side to ensure the panel will stay in place. Take the other two tposts and drive them in directly acorss from these two tposts ( as pictured)

The width should be about 5 1/2 ft from the opposite tposts. This will be your trellis walk way.

Once all four tposts are in securely. Take the hog the panel and walk it in to a curve so that the ends of the panels are between the tposts. This will help shape it into place. Stand it up,making sure the bottoms stay wedged between all the posts. Once stood up, make sure its evenly on the ground on each side and that the curve is even before zip tying the posts to the trellis. Zip tie atleast 3 zip ties to each tpost to make sure its securely in place.

These versatille trellises work great for climbing roses or vines that can be planted directly near them to train them up. They also are strong enough for melons, cucumbers, sweet peas and grape vines.

Happy Garden Season!
