7 simple tricks – so you can quickly spice up your garden
Instructions – How to create a trellis
- Determine the size and shape: Determine the size and shape of the trellis. Do you want a rectangular, square, or perhaps arched trellis?
- fee: Draw an outline on a piece of paper with exact measurements for all sides and slats. Note where and how the slats are placed, and whether they should be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. It can be helpful to use grid paper to help you keep everything straight and in proportion.
- select material: Determine the type of wood and fasteners you want to use. Consider weather resistance and the aesthetic you want to achieve.
2. Cut the wood
- Measure and label: Using your drawing as a guide, measure and mark the wood where it needs to be cut. Remember to take into account any overlaps where the wood will be held together.
- Saw used: Use a hand saw or a power saw, depending on what you have available and feel comfortable with. Make sure you cut straight and follow the marks you made.
- Edge grinding: If the edges of the wood are raw or sharp after sawing, use sandpaper or a sandpaper to smooth them out.
3. Build the frame
- Setting and adjusting: Lay the pieces of wood on a flat surface in the shape you want the frame to be. Use a slant hook or an angle hook to check that the corners are at right angles.
- Glue and bond: Apply wood glue where the pieces of wood meet at the corners, then secure them together with screws or nails. Use a drill or hammer depending on your choice of fasteners.
- Check out the framework: Make sure the frame is straight and stable before proceeding. Allow the glue to dry if necessary.
4. Add the slides
- slice cutting: If you haven’t already, cut the slats to the lengths required by your plan.
- Place the slides: Place the slats on the frame in your chosen pattern, be it a grid, diagonal, or any other pattern.
- Attach slides: Use wood glue at each point of contact between the slats and the frame, and reinforce them with screws or nails. Make sure the slats are straight and evenly spaced.
5. Surface treatment
- Surface grinding: If necessary, sand the surface of the trellis to remove any roughness or sharp edges.
- Paint or varnish: Choose a paint or varnish suitable for outdoor use if the trellis will be placed outside. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application and drying. Not only does this step help make the trellis more aesthetically pleasing, but it also helps protect the wood from the elements.
6. Set up the overlap
- drilling holes: If the trellis will stand freely in the ground, dig holes for the legs and place them in the holes.
- Install the trellis: You may need to fill the holes with gravel or concrete to install the trellis, or attach it to a wall or post using screws and brackets.
- Check level: Use a level to make sure the trellis is straight and level.
- Choose climbing plants: Choose climbing plants that suit you and your garden.
- plant plants Dig holes near the base of the trellis and plant the climbing plants according to their specific instructions.
- Plant control: Carefully guide the climbing plants toward the trellis and tie them if necessary to help them climb.
- Watering and care: Be sure to follow the proper watering and care of your climbing plants so that they thrive and grow well on your trellis.
