Front of House Trellis

I badly needed a trellis by my entrance. It’s not that I don't like my neighbors, I really do, they’re the nicest possible, but it was all a bit too open.

So I jumped on my bike, trailer in tow and went to the local lumber yard and got some materials for this type of trellis that i spotted and pinned on Pinterest.

It was all pretty straightforward. I measured and hammered the galvanized plinth thingy into the ground and placed and painted the upright.

Then I proceeded to cut all the horizontal pieces and painted them.

After that it was just a matter of getting the top first one straight with a level, screwing that in and then adding the rest using a cut off as a template.

Here you can see one of the things that will be hidden away, the neighbor trash can. Also being hidden, their recycling bin.

After finishing I noticed that the upright which I used wasn't 100% straight so I got some steel wire and pulled the top of it towards the house. I don’t mind it at all although it wasn’t in the plan to begin with.

And look, now straight as can be.

As you can see you hardly notice the wire.

I’m really pleased. My entrance feels so much more private now.

Bonus has also given it his seal of approval.

Now I’m just waiting for my rose to climb and hopefully cover it. Climb, Rosy, climb!
