DIY Wire Trellis

Have I mentioned how much I love the Chez Larsson blog? Well, I do. DIY-er Benita posts easy-to-follow projects from her 1954 Stockholm rowhouse — covering everything from gardening, painting and sewing. Here’s a fun trellis project to add some greenery to a front or backyard fence. You could even try it on a condo balcony. If you have some time this weekend, head outside with some hooks!

Pick up some galvanized metal wire and eye bolts at your local hardware store, and attach a series of vertical wire lines along planks of a fence.

When planted at the base of the fence (either in the ground of a yard or a planter pot on a balcony), climbing plants like clematis will begin to grow upwards and reach over to adjacent wires. What a great way to add some interest to a ho-hum fence! For full instructions, see the Chez Larsson post.

  • cartierbraceletlove Thank you Cindy for reminding us what the Affordable Care Act is all about.  We need to be reminded of who it helps.  We need to consider all or our new options.  And I look forward to the future of the Affordable Care Acts measures in the future.

  • You got some amazing photos with your quadcopter and I’m glad you got it back. I’m not taking a quadcopter to China in August, but I need to do my best to leave my attitude at home. My luggage frequently gets searched extensively because of all my passport stamps (I guess). I’ve always been polite until they searched me in Vancouver. My father born in Canada and I grew up less than an hour from there so I mistakenly didn’t expect any problems. I have all sorts of stories, but yours takes the cake. Glad everything turned out alright and that’s awesome that you were able to remain friendly through it all
