Vertical Garden Supports

By Kate Riley June 19, 2017

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.

This simple cedar wall trellis by Gina-Michelle cost only $20.



Find plans for this chevron lattice design at Remodelaholic.



Build these eye-catching french tuteurs with a tutorial at She Holds Dearly.



Construct this stained wood modern trellis and planter with instructions from Deuce Cities Henhouse.



Purchase this chippendale wall trellis on Etsy, the pattern is great inspiration for tackling a similar DIY version.


These slat wood trellises are a more contemporary look for your landscaping.



I love this mixture of gray painted wood and wire to form a trellis.



You can squeeze this simple rectangular wood and wire trellis anywhere.



This simple yet sophisticated white slat trellis also acts as a privacy wall.



This bamboo and twine trellis by Joe Loehle is a more organic design.


Have you ever built a trellis for your vines or veggies? Feel free to share yours in the comments. :)


  1. These are awesome! I’m currently looking for something like this for my Patio. I think I like the ones with the classic horizontal wooden beams the best. ;)

  2. This book is a great resource for trellis design: The Garden Trellis: Designs to Build and Vines to Cultivate by Ferris Cook.

  3. Hi, Kate. Amazing finds! The rectangular wood and wire trellis looks great. It would look like a picture frame in your garden if you could maintain the plant to be just inside the wood frame. You may also play in the colours of the frame to make it stand out.
