Modern DIY Trellis Designs

By Kate Riley April 17, 2020

My DIY project for the weekend is to build a planter box with trellis to support a climbing vine, and I think I’ll stain it black. Last year I built some vegetable trellises and before that a criss cross wall trellis. I still have them both and they still function and look amazing!

April is the perfect time of year to tackle yet another DIY trellis! I was thinking something simple with a modern geometric design, so I went in search of inspiration. Y’all know me though, I had to share my research with you. Most of these are DIY projects, but a few are for purchase. These include simple designs and more intricate geometrics, but all so good!

  1. This post is so timely! I saved your tomato trellis/cage idea from last year and was thinking of tackling that today. I love the look but I did want to ask you how they held up or would you make any modifications? I was wondering if they were large enough provide proper support through the entire growing season.

    • Hello! thank you! They held up great, in fact I left them up through winter! One side needs restapled where one of the Xs detached, but that’s a simple fix and I plan to use those trellises again this summer!

  2. Draga Kate,
    Ma incanta prezentarile tale, mai ales cand e vorba de petrecerea timpului afara.
    Natura si naturalul joaca un rol decisiv in viata de calitate. Decorul in aer liber, pe langa verdeata si flori, este favoritul meu.
    O duminica frumoasa ca o zi de primavara iti doresc.
    Imbratisari, Mia
