One of the most popular home improvement lawn and garden projects is the process of building a garden trellis. There are a wide variety of trellis types available to choose from, so before you begin you’ll have to obtain plans or blueprints for your project.
Many do it yourself projects require you to have a high skill level, but being equipped with the the right plans will allow even the inexperienced do it yourself-er to get the job done.
It’s a good idea to do a little research and become educated on what each style of trellis offers when it comes to both design and function. Popular garden trellis styles include the panel trellis, arch trellis, wall trellis, fence trellis, and planter trellis.
Each style can significantly accent your garden in a variety of ways, and the one you choose will ultimately depend on your own specific tastes. The best part of the design process is discovering how easy it is to customize each style of trellis.
Weather you are looking to build a trellis for a vine, for plants, or even for roses, each design can offer an extremely unique appearance. Following detailed step by step plans for each style will greatly improve your overall results and will make this DIY project much easier to complete.
The lack of high quality trellis plans can really slow things down and leave you with an unfinished incomplete project. The good news is you don’t have to be an expert gardener, you just need to have a little bit of creativity and a good set of plans.
The styles and materials used will always vary on the climate and environment in which the trellis is being built. It is quite common to see the metal trellis, iron trellis, or the wood trellis while researching styles and designs. Since you are building your own you will most likely be using wood materials while following woodworking plans and details.
My very first project was a grape trellis, a very common type of trellis. I have a passion for growing grapes, so I felt this type of trellis was an essential addition to my garden. I didn’t realize how much it changed the overall atmosphere of my yard, and once it was fully complete I had a true sense of accomplishment, a very positive and rewarding experience.
Always remember to begin your project with an open and creative mind. Browsing through a variety of plans will help greatly.
