Xeolyte,
Your yard is beautiful.. I'm envious. I live in the city and have a small backyard but make use of every inch. I just need a few more inches!

Thanks for re-awakening this thread Woo! I've been making myself crazy trying to find good, inexpensive trellis ideas over the last couple months and it looks like Xeolyte has found a great one. . Loved your plan too Xeolyte, I bet you've been in Morning Glory heaven this year.

[How To] Bestest Cheapest DIY Trellis


Hi Sherie0001

It was certainly a pleasure to bring such a wonderful idea back into the daylight so to speak.

This does make me wonder though what other great ideas there may be lurking in the background of this wonderful online collective that we would love to know about?

Thanks so much Xeolyte, love your website! Some of the other tips you've listed are definitely on my 'have to try' list too - your embossed plant tags and weeding with a butter knife especially.

Thank you so much cfiegal for sharing this link with me, and tyssm Xeolyte for the awesome idea. I have been wanting an idea on how I can have climbers/vines and this is perfect. Only problem is that today I visited 1 and then called 2 of my local Lowes and none in stock/discontinued. I plan to hit Home Depot in the morn. Thanks again, U2 Rock!

Bestest Cheapest Trellis


I went to HD today, my local store does not stock these any more , nor does Lowes. The good news is that I checked and Menards does.

Maybe try a lumber yard or building supplies place.

Bestest Cheapest DIY Trellis


I got four of them yesterday for 2:48 cents each from Menards. I am guessing the Scottish accent may have had something to do with it but the attendant took me to the ladder bay. Ummmm nope, not quite what I was looking for!

Anyway we finally found them after I went into more detail They had two different sizes, one was about 4" wide and the other (the size I got) 6" wide, I went with the wider ones (I'm thinking more bang for my buck).
