Give your plants the help they need by building your own garden trellis! This easy and simple project can be adapted to any environment, and built in a few minutes, depending on the complexity of the structure you choose to create!
You can choose the color of tubes you prefer on our online shop or even paint them, if you want a funkier garden! You can use the structure either inside or outside, just remember to protect your trellis and not use galvanized pipes if you plan to eventually use it in the backyard –this article will help you design, build and protect your structure for outdoor use-!
If you decide to build this project, we’d be absolutely thrilled to see some pictures! Please send us your pics at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to send you a 10% OFF promo code to thank you!
