Vertical gardening has become the rage. There are so many ways to achieve this type of gardening but we found this one where they used a garden trellis to get the effect that is desired.
They are showing you how to build your own trellis and create a focal point in your yard or planter pots in one afternoon.
A trellis is a great solution to hid an eyesore or divide a space. Hardware stores carry the pre-made latticework and post uprights you will need to construct a simple garden trellis. Cedar, redwood, and pressure treated lumber are the best choices of wood for outside use. Remember to only use galvanized steel screws and nails to secure the trellis frame. Plan before you make cuts, and follow all safety precautions when using tools.
Use a post hole digger to dig deep enough to safely support the trellis through all weather conditions. Pour a few inches of gravel at the bottom of the trellis or the garden pot that you may be planting in. Set the trellis posts in the hole. Make sure the posts stay level as you tightly pack the holes with a mix of dirt and gravel. Once the trellis is secure, place your climbing plants in the ground and use biodegradable string to tie up and train your plants growth.
Instead of planting directly into the ground you can use a garden planter as the base and place the lattice inside. Place the pot and lattice along a bare garden wall or anyplace that you need to add color and decoration.
