Next time you have nice long flexible branches laying around, make a nice heart
trellis like my husband did for me. If I recall right, it was branches from a mulberry


bush we cut down. He twisted baling wire around to attach smaller branches, kind of woven. It is still good as the day he did it, Spring 2013

One of the most inexpensive trellises to make!

Supplies:

  • 2 bamboo poles
  • 1 bamboo (accordion-style lattice fence panel
  • zip ties (I used white)
  • jute twine (or yarn if you want color)
  • sharp scissors
  • tape measure
  • paint or sealant (optional)

Steps:

  1. Decide how wide you want the trellis to be. Stretch the fencing until it is the desired width, then measure the height of the expandable fencing. Put the poles into the ground at the desired width, putting them at a distance that allows for the fencing to extend past the poles so that you can attach it to the poles. NOTE: We placed the poles on top of the ground and stretched out the expandable fencing to figure out how far apart the poles should be.
  2. Once the poles are in the ground, zip tie the two top corners, then the two bottom ones to keep the trellis in place. Zip tie the trellis to the poles every five to ten inches. Go down both sides securing the expandable fencing all the way down to the ground, with the excess parts of the ties in the back so that they don't show. Once it is secure, cut the excess off of each zip tie.

  4. Cover the zip ties with the jute twine. Then plant your climbing plants in front of the trellis. If the trellis is going to hold a lot of weight you may want to place the zip ties closer together.

Our kids planted pole beans this year and we needed a simple trellis for the beans to grow on. My husband found some pieces of 2x2 wood, leftover from another project, and cut 3 pieces to the same length. He sunk them into the soil in a triangle formation around where the plants were growing. Then he wrapped thin rope around the wood for the vines to climb on. It has worked really well.

This is much more attractive than any of my husband's bean trellis solutions. I'll suggest he do it this way next year for sure.

homemade garden trellis

I'm attempting once again to grow birdhouse gourds. They work well in hills with a lot of area to spread, but I don't have a large area to spare. They also will climb, so I'm trying it this way this year.

Use hard wood branches you have pruned to at least five feet long in your garden as a trellis for climbing vines. It's perfect for sweet peas or peas. Looks absolutely pretty too.
