Climbing plants look so much better when they have a designated place to climb. A wooden, metal or vinyl garden trellis is easy to install on a wall or fence. You can choose a decorative metal trellis and push it into the ground. Place a trailing plant in front and wait for it to wind its way to the top. Clematis and trumpet vines are beautiful choices with their colourful blooms. While wire trellises come in pretty shapes, wood trellises tend to be more geometric. These look right at home on a brick or stone wall.
You can turn a plain garden gate into a spectacular entryway by adding an arbour. Climbing plants growing up the sides and over top make a stunning introduction to your home. You can find a ready-made wooden trellis or metal trellis in a size and shape to suit your garden. Basic skills are all you need to fix them in place. A trellis makes it easy to create a natural piece of art in your yard.
