The summer is in full swing, and so are garden works. If you are a keen gardener and have flowers and veggies of all kinds, you may need a trellis for some of them. A trellis is an architectural structure, usually made from an open framework or lattice of interwoven or intersecting pieces of wood, bamboo or metal that is normally made to support and display climbing plants, especially shrubs.
Garden trellises can do wonders for any outdoor space: their height makes them ideal focal points, lending an architectural feel that looks beautiful as well as serving a practical purpose. Most people simply think of them either as decorative accents or utilitarian plant supports, but in fact they have myriad uses in the garden that you may not have previously considered. These graceful, charming garden accents come in handy as solutions for many problems gardeners face when trying to make their garden the best it can be.
Garden trellises and cages basically are supports for climbing plants and vine vegetables to keep them off the ground as they grow.
A trellis in the garden is a very decorative element that will enhance any flower garden. Trellises and cages are easy to take care of and they are inexpensive to purchase
