A trellis is a garden structure that is often made of wood or metal. Its main purpose is to provide support for climbing vines and other plants. A trellis covered with roses in bloom or other flowering vines can be an eye-catching focal point that adds vertical interest to a garden or lawn. There are many ways to incorporate trellis ideas into gardening landscapes.
Traditional Trellises
A purchased trellis can be used to create a flower- or vine-covered arch at the end of a path or over a gateway opening into a yard. Another traditional way to use a trellis is to train morning glories or clematis to climb up a fan-shaped trellis.
Ladder Trellis
An old wooden rung ladder can create vertical interest when it is sunk into the ground to the second rung and used as a trellis for honeysuckle or another flowering vine.
Arbor Trellis
Sturdy posts can turn a wooden trellis into an overhead grape arbor and provide a rustic sitting area in a backyard.
Teepee Trellis
Four poles and some twine can be used as a DIY teepee trellis to give climbing vegetables support and maximize space in the garden.
Trellis Tips
Trellis structures must be sturdy enough to support the weight of climbing plants.
Tall trellises should be placed to avoid overshadowing shorter plants.
Found items like ladders, PVC pipes and window frames can make interesting trellises.
