A garden trellis is an outdoor design made of wood, plastic, or cast iron. The garden trellis is not only for giving a very unique and tranquil look to your landscaping, but also necessary if you plan on having vine flowers in your garden.
There are many shapes and sizes to choose from. Some garden trellises are tall and skinny while others are short and tall that you walk under. Most trellises have a square-shaped pattern in them that varies in size. However, some are known to be more unique with a diamond shape or simple “V” structure. You can purchase garden trellises as one piece or as a kit with several pieces to put together. It will depend on the size of the trellis you purchase. Most are very simple to assemble.
A garden trellis can serve as a grand entryway into your garden. This design works well as you feel like you are going from simply being outdoors to entering a floral paradise. Many people choose to install a garden trellis to help separate parts of their garden. Another very popular use for a garden trellis is to place it against the side of your house. Allow a variety of climbing plants to grow on it. Morning glories, clematis, sweet peas, and honeysuckle are excellent choices. A garden trellis made of wood with a bench in the middle is ideal for relaxing.
Garden trellises are very beautiful, adding a classic look to your garden area. They are very easy to install and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. A garden trellis needs to be able to stand up to the elements in your area. They are to be made of quality wood and heavy metal braces or made of cast iron. For best results and safety, make sure all garden trellises are securely anchored to the ground. Trellises are quite inexpensive, yet they add tremendous value to the appeal of your landscaping. You can purchase them at any home improvement store or online. For those who enjoy being creative and working with tools, consider building your own garden trellis.
