Grow tomatoes, peas, and cucumbers with ease on this A-frame trellis that is oh-so-easy to make. Vertical vegetable gardening is a great way to make the most of your garden space. Don't limit your trellis to just vegetables. Climbing vines, such as clematis, wisteria, and ivy, will look pretty climbing over the  trellis.

What You Need

Materials

  • (8) 4-foot-long 1x1 garden stakes
  • 2 cans spray paint in your color of choice
  • (8) 2-inch woods screws
  • 4x8 sheet of concrete remesh with 6-inch squares, cut into two 35-inch x 31-inch pieces
  • (2) 2-inch-wide stainless-steel hinges with screws 

Tools

  • Wire cutter
  • Staple gun with 5/8-inch staples
  • Hammer
  • Clamps
  • Drill

Step 1: Assemble the Frame

Cut two of the 4-foot-long 1x1 garden stakes so they are each 34 inches long. Attach one of the 4-foot garden stakes to each end of a 34-inch 1x1 with the 2-inch wood screws to form the top of the frame. Measure down 30 inches from the bottom of the 1x1 and place a mark. Line up the top of the edge of another 1x1 with the mark, and attach with 2-inch wood screws to form the bottom of the frame. Repeat to make a second frame.

In a well-ventilated area (or outside), spray the frames with your choice of spray paint, letting dry between coats.

Step 2: Attach the Grid

Center the edges of one of the 35-inch x 31-inch sheets of remesh on the 1x1s. Use staple gun to secure; hammer in staples to ensure a firm hold.

Step 3: Assemble the Trellis

Stand the two frames back to back (stapled sides together), and clamp at the upper corners. Measure in 12 inches from the top corners to locate where hinges will go. Set the hinges in place, and mark hole centers for screw placement. Drill pilot holes at marks. Attach hinges with screws.
