Updated: Feb 12

It's a lovely Saturday evening and you are enjoying the warmth in the premise of your outdoor garden – one that you most probably put much thought into when it comes to plant selection. However, there are other elements you can add to make your garden the perfect hangout spot on a beautiful sunny day.

In addition to fences, ceramic vases and a stone pathway, a trellis is a striking structure that is guaranteed to elevate your garden. With the use of trellis and climbing plants, you can have a whimsical garden that is straight out of a fairytale! Add a few sitting areas and you and your guests will never want to leave the garden.


WHAT IS A TRELLIS?

A trellis is commonly defined as an open framework of interwoven or intersecting solid wood that forms a standing structure. It provides shade and shelter that can be constructed at patios, rooftops and even your garden.


TRELLIS & CLIMBING PLANTS

It is common for homeowners to fill the trellis with bushy plants as part of the aesthetics. They can also conceal a boring yard fence, a plain side of the house, or an unsightly view of the road.

BEST PLANTS FOR TRELLIS

Climbing plants and vegetable plants with vines work well on trellises. These can include the following:​

  • Sweet pea

  • Lavender

  • Clematis

  • Climbing roses like Gertrude Jekyll

  • Bean

  • Tomatoes

  • Cucumbers

​Make sure your trellis is sturdy enough the hold your vegetation, especially when it is at full bloom. Plants like climbing roses and wisteria will become quite heavy when mature so the structure must be able to support them.
