Installing a trellis is an easy project that can make a big impact. Trellises come in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors. The most common use for a trellis is in gardening, but there are plenty of other ways to use them - you can get creative!
Here are five easy ways you can use a trellis.
Put it in a planter.
Stake your trellis in a barrel, planter or container garden to add height and support tall flowers. Choose a trellis that’s tall enough for your climbing flowers, yet small enough to look proportional to the planter.
Mount it to a wall.
Attach your trellis to a wall to create natural décor with climbing flowers. Use a trellis bracket to offset the trellis from the wall and give your climbing plants space to wrap.
Use it as a privacy screen.
Stake two or more tall trellises side-by-side and plant clematis or other flowers to climb them, creating a natural privacy screen. Place the trellises along the edge of a patio or courtyard for a secluded vibe. Or, use them to conceal an AC unit or other outdoor fixture.
Make it a piece of art.
A properly placed trellis can elevate your outdoor aesthetics. Place in front of a blank wall to create an eye-catching accent. Train your favorite color roses to climb it and add pops of color to your outdoor space.
Add it to your garden.
Stake a trellis in your garden as a plant support or accent piece to add height and dimension. To let your flowers be the focal point, choose a hog-wire or metal grid trellis that blends into the landscape.
