Vertical Garden Supports

I’m in the middle of constructing a garden trellis for my courtyard, one to support climbing vines up a wall. I plan to incorporate a geometric design so it’s decorative as well as practical. I went online in search of inspiration and how-tos to guide me on my quest to build my own. I then sat in my courtyard and sketched a design that will complement the style of my home.

‘Tis that time of year when we can sit outside and appreciate a flowering vine or dabble in home grown vegetables with a little help from vertical supports. I’ve built a wire trellis to support vines but this time I’m looking at constructing a trellis of wood since I can create the exact design I want. In my research I came across several great ideas for vertical garden supports for growing vines or veggies.
