This is a wall grape trellis that I built a couple weeks ago, but finally got the pictures together. It is constructed out of all heartwood Redwood. I didn’t end up putting any finishes on it as I wanted it to naturally age, and didn’t want it to affect the grapes in any way. After planning it out it only took me a day to build and put it in. The vines are loving it and happily growing and staying off of the house.

‘that is a fine looking trellis! Does it remove for cleaning and painting? It looks like it might.

stefang – I have one wall anchor into it, and it is sitting in 2 post holders that are somewhat hidden by the river rock so if it does get damaged, beaten up by the weather, or I simply want to replace it I can.

Well done. Red seedless grapes? Any provision for netting to keep the birds out of the near-ready to pick grapes? That was my problem. Nice arbor. Great vines. Birds ravished the harvest and then they would hang around and gloat. Refreshed, they proceeded to bombard the car. But, the arbor was nice.

Nicely designed and built. Simple eloquence.

huff – you are going to be waiting a while for that wine since these are my table grapes. I built a proper two tiered trellies around the side for my 6 Primitivo vines (genetically equivalent to Zinfandel).

dustyal – I have 2 Crimson seedless (red) and 1 Thompson seedless (green). To be honest I havn’t put much thought to the birds since all of the vines have just been planted this year. I will definitley give it some thought though for both of my trellises.
