Not exactly eye candy, but it did it's job well and only cost a few quarters in nylon string and screws.

I loved this trellis !! I thought it was so slick and nifty looking last year Smile I like things like this a lot.

I may just have to go on a 'search & rescue' mission to find me some good lookin' sticks! I think I could DO this! Thanks for the REALLY COOL idea! :idea:

Thanks all for your kind words about the trellis. You can definitely do this goosegirl!

My daughter liked the snap peas so much last year that I’m planting 3 squares this season so I just built my one trellis a companion. Takes maybe two hours once you have the materials together.



If you try it and have any questions just let me know!

Best,

Marc

One of our trees has a lot of suckers that I have to cut back. I think I just found my sticks!

That is really nice Marc. I'm going to file that away for when I need a smaller trellis. I really like the rustic and organic feel of it.

Hey acara. After weighing my options, I think yours is the winner. So what materials have you used here? And would it be strong enough to hold watermelon, 3 maters, cukes and peas? (Do zucchinis need to be trellised?) I'm ready to get started.

Thanks a million!
