A garden trellis is an outdoor design made of wood or cast iron. The garden trellis is for appeal only, giving a very unique and tranquil look to your landscaping. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from. Some garden trellises are tall and skinny while others are short and tall that you walk under. Most trellises have a square shaped pattern in them that varies in size. However, some are known to be more unique with a diamond shape or simple “V” structure.
Garden trellises can be purchased as one piece or as a kit with several pieces to put together. It will depend on the size of the trellis you purchase. Most are very simple to put together. A garden trellis can serve as a grand entryway to walk into the garden area. This design works well as you feel like you are going from simply being outdoors to entering your garden.
Another very popular use for a garden trellis is to place it against a wall. Allow a variety of climbing plants to grow on it. Morning glories, clematis, and honeysuckle are excellent choices. A garden trellis made of wood with a relaxing bench in the middle is ideal for relaxing in your garden. Many people choose to install a garden trellis to help separate parts of their garden.
