This grill-work screen can add interest to your home, increase privacy, and give climbing plants room to grow — all in one attractive structure.
Create a shady corner anywhere in your yard by building what we are calling a trellis house. Basically it consists of wide walls and a pergola roof structure, this triangular trellis house nestles comfortably in the yard.
This twiggy tepee, known in garden circles as a tuteur, guides and supports plants into a decorative pattern.
A trellis can function as a unique sunscreen or can be the framework for an outdoor hanging garden. Scroll down the page at the link to find the free downloadable plan.
Place the trellises close together for maximum mass and privacy. Angle them like half-open shutters to soften a corner of your yard. Or, put them in parallel rows to make an open-roofed arbor.
We love sweet peas and clematis and this trellis will show them off in grand style. We made our trellis really tall. You can adjust all the dimensions down if you want a shorter trellis.
