MMM 281 – Vertical gardening done elegantly with a trellis that you can walk right under! This arched tunnel will add a dramatic flair to any garden, and seem magical once it’s brimming with vegetation. In this video I show you how I made this 18′ long, 4′ wide, 7′ tall arched trellis using PVC, plastic tubing, 2×3 wire, and zip ties. It’s a minimal tools project that only requires a hammer, a measuring tape, a marker, and a saw.

    Ahhhh the hat makes a cameo lol. Really good vid. What was the blue tubing? Like a irrigation type stuff?

    Did you angle cut the bottom of the pvc to assist in getting the pvc into the ground?

    I’m putting this vid my garden ideas for next gardening season!!!

    What is the diameter of your arch at the top of your trellis? If needed in the future, both Fleet Farm and Tractor Supply carry several different versions of cattle panels.

    I think you did yourself a favor by not using cattle panels. they are available in several heights and grid sizes, but only one length – 16' long is normal. Also, the wire is approximately 1/4" welded wire. I have used them for many things, mostly for cattle, and they are tough to work with and awkword to work with.

    Looks great! I would love to do something like this. For anyone planning to do something similar, I recommend driving rebar down into the soil, since you can really pound it in there solid, then you can fit the PVC pipe over the part of the rebar that sticks up above soil level. Lots of people use this method to build PVC hoop houses. PVC doesn't really have the strength or rigidity to drive deep into the ground by itself. Are you planning to disassemble it for the winter? I'm curious to see how the blue PEX pipe holds up in the sun over time, but luckily since it's all modular you can replace any pieces that don't work out.

    That will be phase 2 trellis for me next year, thanks for showing how you did it. I built a 5 ft tall trellis made of wire and wood stakes and then some bamboo angled and connected to it so there are essentially two climbing paths but I can still get to the plants for harvesting.

    That looks great! Is this something that will come down for storage at the end of the season or does it live there now. Personally i think the plants themselves will provide strength as they weave their way up. However, if too much weight hangs from the blue plex pipe, it may pop out of the pvc fittings as i see they are smaller tubing than the fitting size is. Can't wait to see the canopy of beans and peas. Excellent my friend!

    I built one out of 3/4" a couple years back, and a trellis out of 1/2" i had laying around. The 3/4 one works fine, but the 1/2" one keeps bending with the weight of honeysuckle, and it its difficult to keep upright where I have it. I would definitely recommend NOT using 1/2".

    Great video! I don't have any experience building anything like that, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching your progress.

    Props on the new intro, logo, and potential channel name ☺

    Once you get weight on the top you may need to add some cross ties to keep the sides from spreading . . . then duck on your way thru.

    I’ve build about 100 square feet worth of cedar trellis two years ago, to make corner walls around my pergola. Grape vines, beans and squashes enjoy it!
