For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted my own garden. I wanted to own those collapsible and extendable trellises.
In my dreams of a perfect garden there are always trellises. They bring to mind quaint little fairy tale cottages. Of course, you need trellises in a garden for purely decorative purposes. There are many plants that are best grown on a trellis. And there are as many reasons to grow them that way.
Gardens are beautiful places to find peace, shelter, and food if you’re a small creature. It’s become one of those best escapades or perfect location that’s hard to find in life. But if you’re a garden owner, these small victories can be a battleground. These creatures can ruin or be the death of your yard. Don’t let these freeloading critters ruin your hard work without the need to harm them. With this nifty garden trellis device, it’s a stylish barrier that still allows your plants to breathe through while keeping intruders out.
However, just the thought of buying and spending cash for trellises makes me flinch.
I am a really thrifty person. My husband secretly hates it. He knows it’ll all boil down to one thing: me taking advantage of his carpentry and painting skills.
I looked for DIY trellises and found these collapsible ones. It’s a DIY project which I immediately showed him. He did them over the weekend and they were exactly what I wanted – collapsible and inexpensive! I’m so excited to start planting again!
