I have a couple of trellises in my garden that I bought years ago. I think they add so much charm and beauty, especially when my vines grow up their sides. Of course, I have a trellis or two for my vegetable garden as well, you know, for when the tomatoes and beans begin to grow. I was looking at those trellises just the other day and thought to myself that I’ll bet there’s a great way to make your own trellis, instead of spending so much money at Lowe’s or Home Depot.
Well, guess what I found? I found so many wonderful ways that you can make your own garden trellis, and these are perfect whether you’re looking to add structure to your flower garden or you need something to keep those tomato vines from falling over. Many of these are made with upcycled items, which make them great.
I have to say, my garden is my favorite place in the world. There is just so much beauty in flowers and it’s so relaxing to just sit and watch the world pass by. That’s why I originally bought a trellis – just to add a bit of beauty to the area. And that’s why I love these DIY trellis ideas. You can literally make these in less than a day and they offer such beauty and charm to any garden area.
Whether you want a beautiful trellis made out of cedar or you would like to try your hand making one from an old bicycle wheel – yes, there’s one of those in here – I’m sure that you are going to love this collection of easy DIY trellises to add to your garden. As always, let me know which one you’ve tried and which is your favorite. Happy gardening!
1. DIY Bamboo Pole Pea Trellis
You can easily build a bamboo pole trellis that is strong enough to help those heavier plants as they grow. You’ll need bamboo of course, and if you’re in the south, wild bamboo grows just about everywhere so this one may not cost you anything. Just tie it all together with some twine. This is not only great for veggie gardens, but is a beautiful trellis to build in your flower garden as well.
