In today’s 2 minute tip, I show how we make heavy duty trellises that support indeterminate tomatoes, squash, pumpkins, and even watermelon. Links to materials: 1) 1/2″ EMT Conduit: 2) 1/2″ Conduit Pull Elbow: 3) Concrete Remesh: 4) Rebar: 5) Zip Ties: Metric Measurements: 1) Cut Vertical Conduit: 2.44 meters 2) Cut Horizontal Conduit: 105 cm 3) Remesh: 213 x 108 cm 4) Cut Rebar: 107 cm We already had all of the materials on hand except for remesh. Here’s what it would cost to build one trellis if you have to buy all of the materials: Remesh – .25 Conduit – 3 x .99 = .97 (with some left over) pull elbows: 2 x .26 = .52 Rebar – .20 (with some left over) Zip ties – .97 (with lots left over) Total – .91 One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.

    I'm wondering if I can use bamboo sticks instead of the conduit fittings for the frame. I'm trying to use what I already have instead of buying new things all the time.

    this was perfect. Easy set up, and very durable. Only issue was finding a vehicle with enough space to accommodate the utility fence ! thanks for the tip !

    Hey Patrick, I know Im a little late to the party on commenting. I was just curious if you've had ussues with the metal heating up in the summer to the point it damages the plant? If so, how do you remedy this. Thanks, the trellises look great.

    Hey Patrick, do you ever pinch off the tips of tomato seedlings to encourage a bushier plant? Everyone swears by it for growing peppers but I've not heard anyone say they do it for tomatoes.

    I am a big fan of your channel and next year I will be adding some raised beds to the back garden. I would love to make some of these . The only problem is finding these products in the UK because a lot of times we have different names for things but I am determined these are definitely the easiest and best that I have seen (believe me I've seen plenty). So wish me luck and keep on inspiring people. Thanks for all your tips . They are much appreciated.

    Great tip and I will be building these this week. It would however be nice if they were 4" wide instead of 3.5" since all my beds are 8", but this still sure beats any other alternative/solution I've seen. Using rebar makes them easy to remove and store when not needed.

    Here is a helpful tip you can share… Cut the metal trellis piece into a 10 x 10 or 15 x 15 inch's and bend into into a C shape. Maybe  around a large pipe to get that " C " shape. When a squash grows large enough place it under it and tie rap it to your metal trellis. Now you have a strong shelf for you squash…enjoy.

    Great tip! I'm trying to make a trellis for my Trombochino squash and pole beans. What did you do to cut the rebar? I don't have many construction tools and was wondering if you can get rebar that is already cut. I've been having a lot of fun this season incorporating many of your tips and my garden is thanking me by growing and growing. I planted a fall garden last season hoping that I would get around to putting up a hoop house–there just wasn't time. I just let everything stay in the ground and this spring everything came back! Kale ,Spinach, miner's lettuce–I got to eat the greens even while they flowered. Have insects, happy me! I have such a small area that it is a challenge trying to use every bit of an old planting while waiting for the new one to produce. I'm starting my cuc's and squash so I'd better get that trellis finished!
    Thanks again!  Julie

    Thanks for making these videos!  Question, in an organic garden, should we be worried about the remesh or EMT piping eroding and sprinkling harmful toxins into the soil?  You seem like you know about things like that…I do not.

    what about rust?

  • The Abled Gardener 1 year ago

    Great idea, I've been making trellises for different veggies and didn't know the remesh existed, lol. I would have picked them up a long time ago. Thanks Patrick, great video.
