This is a clever trellis idea for a small space. Two planters, minimum tools, and a weekend. Done!
“It’s summertime and the livin’ is easy”. Grab your favorite beverage and head out to the patio/deck to enjoy some fresh air. What a great way to while away the time and relax after a long day. Then you notice how open and exposed your space feels. What could you do to create a little seclusion? It needs to be something simple and easy. Aha! – privacy trellis.
This is a clever trellis idea for a small space. Minimum tools required and can easily be completed over a weekend.
1: Build the trellis, space the two legs to fit into the pots.
2: Cut the pvc legs and drain pipe half the height of the pots.
3. Place the trellis into the pvc sleeves and position in pots, place drain, fill pots with concrete mix just below top of drain.
4: Allow concrete to cure per manufacturer instructions.
5: Fill pot with soil, plant fast growing vine. Preferably a flowering vine.
Materials list: 2×2 for trellis, two large terra-cotta pots, concrete mix, four pvc sleeves for legs, two pvc drains, screws or nails for trellis, sealer. The size of the trellis is up to you, make it fit your space.
Quick tip: Cut the pieces for the trellis and seal,stain, or paint before assembling.
