Pin It


Wood trellis, my first try

I had fast-growing hyacinth bean vines and not much time left to dither. So I grabbed some cheap 2x1s and 3x1s from Home Depot (I think they were around $1 each) and some left over screws and set to work.

I painted it and set it in place, and only just in time. 3 weeks later it was engulfed, and I didn't see it again until October frosts.

It doesn't look bad from a distance, but next time I'll either use thinner wood or apply a little more ingenuity to fitting them together so that the pieces don't have to stack. I think the central squares would look better if they were all on a single plane.
