Grapevine Garden Trellis

Christine Weber

A rustic looking ladder for sweet peas or other climbers to scramble up in your garden or in a planter on your patio.

Materials and Equipment:


  • three or four bamboo poles, available in any garden store, three or more feet high
  • several meters of grape, kiwi or other vine, from a garden or craft store, or your garden
  • wire
  • wire cutters


  1. Place your bamboo poles in the ground equidistant from each other in a pyramid formation. Bring the tips together and bind with wire.
  2. Weave the vine into a braid of three or more strands. (If it is not pliable, soak it for a few hours first.)
  3. Wrap the vine braid around the pole pyramid from bottom to top. If you run out of braid, start again and wrap the braid more loosely this time.
  4. Secure the top and bottom of the braid with wire.
  5. Plant sweet peas, beans or other vines at the base of the trellis and watch them scramble up.

Leave the trellis outside for the winter if you like. It makes an elegant addition to a winter garden!
