Needed something that my purple green beans and cucumbers could grow and climb on. Made from pine from the orange big box store, normally prefer the blue and gray one, but someone gave me a gift card. Horizontal bars are spaced a foot apart. One side is seven feet tall and the other is six feet tall. Trellis is four feet wide. Soon after this picture I staked is down with four stakes after a heavy wind blew it over. Should be interesting as plants actually fill in the air space.

Nice trellis. And isn’t purple green beans one of them oxymoron things?

I made somewhat the same thing for my cucumbers, but I bought 2 panels of Wire 4 ft tall by 8 ft. long. It was like $6.00 a piece. I tied one one to the other and made like a Tee-Pee with it over the plants. Never used them before but wanted to try something new this year. I need to make one more and I may use your idea on the next one. I have some scrap wood that needs to be used up. Good Job.
