Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AlbertaUrbanGarden This is great for peas, melons, squash, pumpkin, beans and much much more. Growing in raised beds is a fantastic way to grow fruits and vegetables in the comfort of your back yard. That said you are restricted to grow along the ground unless you take advantage of the third dimension and grow vertically. There are many plants like grapes, melons, cucumbers, beans and pees that can take over large areas if left on the ground chocking out their neighbours. But if given a trellis to climb or be supported by they can take over the area they need to prosper while allowing their neighbours to thrive as well. In my case I chose to grow vertically with a structure called a trellis. the term trellis is a very board term for a architectural structure that is mean to support climbing plants. They can be made of a wide variety of materials including metal wood and even plants such as the three sisters planting method where by climbing beans use the stalk of corn to climb.  In my garden I have used two types of trellis. The first I built off of my fence. I built it to permanently support my heirloom grape vines that I got from my grandfathers. This is a more permanent structure and cost a little more to make. Today I am going to show to how to build a very cost effective one that I use for my annuals that can be moved quite quickly and simply.  Before we get started you will need some materials you can find at any large box store. Today Ill be building a 1.2 meter or 4 foot tall by 3.0 meter or 10 foot wide. For this trellis you will need the following: 2x 3 meter […]

    I've noticed Patrick has a similar trellis. what are your thoughts in building a trellis like this with PVC?

    i'd like to know if you're netting holds up… I built something similar in early 2014 and I lost a whole bunch of tomato plants when the netting just collapsed and tore… the longer it was up the more apt it was to tear and break… this was during a single growing season.  I no longer use netting but use vertical string with plastic tomato clips… cheers

    The only thing I see missing is the east west direction of the trellis.  As the sun rises and sets, you do not want the trellised veggies to shade out your lower terrestrial veggies.  Also, for my garden I would need to have purchased 16 angled connectors.  It was cheaper to learn how to use a pipe bender which I subsequently returned to the big box store.  Good video!!!

    Hi Steven,

    I worked hard to like you. Now I am not bothered by you and that is a good thing. 

    Where did this presentable brother come from? Why was I not informed before? I am not ready for this. 

    I am a nerd. I like people like me. like you. Not good looking siblings. 

    He looks like a winner. I hate that. 

    Hey! Steven's brother whom name I didn't even bother to learn, go away where cool kids hang. We are talking about nitrogen and Worm Poop and other boring stuff here.

    Best Regards.

    Great video Stephen and Alexander! The trellis looks great and easy enough to do. I like growing vertically. This year I will do more  of  it in my garden.

    In the UK the  structure at 0.36 is known as a wigwam and is one of the easiest to built.    Another common structure that is used in the  UK  and is even easier to build is called a Bamboo A frame support (see http://www.gardenworldimages.com/Details.aspx?ID=165230&TypeID=1&searchtype=&contributor=0&licenses=1,2&sort=REL&cdonly=False&mronly=False)..   this is great as all you need are bamboo canes, string and netting.  The advantage of this is that you can grow on both sides, peas, beans, climbers in a bed.   It is also needs no  DIY skills and no tools (apart from scissors) and is easy to set up and take dowN at the end of a growing season (and also easy to move).  It is also cheap.

    3-D veggies growing Rocks! It is amazing how mush more can be grown using this method. Thanks for the trellis tips guys!

  • Ben Jamin 1 year ago

    Haha – I just noticed Alexander's shoes! That's a pretty fancy trellis and much more attractive than my 2.1 m star pickets with dog fencing wired to it. Thanks for the how to guys!

  • Pople BackyardFarm 1 year ago

    good information here we love growing vertically.

  • High Desert Garden (Phillip) 1 year ago

    That's basically how I made the trellis for my pumpkins. Great work on the video.

    Use UV rated zip ties. The while zip tie is not and will become brittle over time.

  • OneYardRevolution | Frugal & Sustainable Organic Gardening 1 year ago

    Great job guys! We've been using similar trellises for years. They definitely get the job done.
