Make Your Own Trellis

There are countless ways to train climbing plants up a wall, over a garden gate, or even into a decorative shape. If you have plenty to spend, you can have decorative year-round trellises built that will look pretty on your property (particularly if you live in a warm-weather area where your vines will be green in the winter). Or build inexpensive and portable trellises that can support your climbing plants.


Make an invisible trellis

If you love the look of a vine-covered wall, eyehooks screwed into siding or walls can hold delicate wire and let vines climb up and around. Design a grid by placing eyehooks 12 to 16 inches apart and run wire through them. Or devise your own design. You can even install eyehooks to cover up brick or masonry, using a masonry drill.
