How to build a trellis
Building a trellis for climbing roses is an easy job. The trellis will help the roses to climb around your home and create a beautiful wall of flowers. Some of the materials and tools that you will need are:
- 1 by 1 1/2 inch wooden boards – number will vary
- Galvanized steel wire
- Paint brushes
Building the trellis
First of all you will need at least a dozen wood boards for this structure.
Painting the trellis
It’s important to use exterior paint for the trellis, because it will be exposed to lots of sunlight, rain, wind, etc. After you paint the trellis, make sure it has dried up completely.
Fixing the trellis
Now it’s time to find a spot for the flowers and for the trellis. One nice and easy way to fix the trellis is against a fence. Use some wire to fix it properly. If you want to attach it near your home, then you will need to use some hooks and drill some holes in your home’s wall.
