Trellises & Garden Obelisks
Perhaps the most popular and traditional type of garden trellis. The shape of the structure gives more space for plants to climb on while offering better support for their vines. It can be placed in front of your door to create a beautiful entrance , welcoming your guests with the smell of blooming flowers. If you are lucky enough to have a big garden , you can arrange multiple arched trellises over a pathway to create a living tunnel.
Flat Trellises & Panels
A truly versatile type of garden décor. They can be installed on the wall of your house (they look particularly gorgeous against an exposed brick wall) or anywhere in your garden as a freestanding piece. Wall-mounted trellises come in a wider variety of intricate shapes and styles to help you create a garden that truly reflects ‘you’. Panel trellises are easier to install and move than arched structures , making them a great option for inexperienced gardeners. Make sure to choose the right size of mesh depending on the plant you’re planning to grow on it.
The most decorative kind of garden structure. Obelisks are usually made of wrought iron and can easily become the centrepiece of your garden. The installation process requires little to no effort and the obelisk can be easily moved around the garden , making it a great solution for plants that require different amounts of sun exposure throughout the year. They create beautiful ‘living’ 3D structures and will liven up any space.
Versatile and easy to install. You simply can’t go wrong with a classic white or unfinished wooden trellis. They are neutral enough to work well with any garden style , seemingly blending into the scenery. Choose an unfinished trellis if you want to paint it a specific colour to easily personalise it. If the wooden structure will be exposed to rain , make sure to coat it with a protective layer of varnish to preserve it for years to come.
Long-lasting and spectacular. If you are looking to introduce an eye-catching centrepiece to your garden , then an intricate wrought iron trellis or an obelisk is your best bet. Iron can be manipulated into beautiful twisting shapes and unusual structures , instantly elevating any garden.
Not Only For Flowers
No one can deny the timeless beauty of an arch covered in climbing roses. However , trellises and garden obelisks are not limited to flowers. Place them in your vegetable garden or a greenhouse to provide support for climbing vegetables. Tomatoes , peas and a variety of beans are the most common and easy-to-grow plants , making them a staple in any vegetable patch. Make sure you consider how tall and heavy the vegetable plant will grow when choosing the height of your trellis. You don’t want the structure to collapse , ruining months of work and care.
