DIY Garden Trellis

An easy way to make a trellis to grow your vegetables vertically on. It only takes a few tools and about an hour to make this trellis.

Build a trellis.  Using sturdy materials like 2 x 4’s and hardware cloth, you can fashion trellises for all of your climbing and vining edibles, making more room in the ground for vegetables and herbs that tend to bush or clump. Small pumpkins, summer squash, cucumbers, peas, and green beans will love scrambling up the trellis, and they’ll be easier to maintain and harvest when their long vines are elevated.
