Trellis USE AND CARE

How to Install

In the Ground or in a Pot

For lightweight plants, simply sink the legs into the soil about 12 inches.

For heavier plants that need more support, sink the legs at least two feet into the soil.

If you need to extend the trellis legs, use one of the following options:

  • Attach rebar to the legs with wire or twine

  • Attach wood stakes to the legs using nails or screws

  • Attach metal stakes to the legs using nails or screws

If your soil is too hard to push or hammer the trellis into the ground, dig holes about 1-2 ft deep for each leg. (The depth is determined by the amount of support your plant will need.) Place the trellis legs in the holes and fill in soil around them.

On a Wall or Fence

You can mount a trellis onto a wall or fence using a trellis bracket or PVC pipe spacers. This will offset the trellis from the mounting surface. This improves air circulation and provides plants with a space to climb.

Care and Maintenance

Seasonal Care

At the end of the growing season, remove any dead or crowded vines and rake away leaves near the base of the trellis to minimize rot during the winter.

Prior to planting in the spring, repair, sand, and paint your trellis.

Painting

If you choose to paint your trellis, we recommend using a waterborne exterior urethane enamel on your wood trellis. If you are using a lighter color, it will require at least two coats to cover the underlying color.
