flower trellises

Recommended Posts

A number of years ago, I was looking for a trellis and couldn't find one at Lakeside.  I found a picture of one in a magazine and took the photo to an herrero, who built it for me.   It was more or less like this:

I, personally, wouldn't do wood here unless you like throwing dinner parties for the termites. Iron, pvc or copper... google.

I use a section of fence mounted a bit away from the surface of the wall so the vines can easily wrap around.  Once it's covered by the vines you can't see it anyways.

looking more for the flat fan type to go up against my back wall, thank you for your help.I'll try have hammers.

 

Wood will last a year.  Iron work is relatively inexpensive--that's what I'd do.  In fact, that's what I did.  It's been nearly 20 years since the iron worker built my trellis, and it's still standing and supporting a large flowering vine where I used to live, as an arch inside over the door to the street.  A metal fan trellis would last as well.
