Tired of the same old garden bed full of flowers? You can create a vertical garden in any part of your yard with a trellis. This brings the eye upward and makes any garden space look more interesting, softens hardscape and allows smaller gardens to grow more in less space. You can use a trellis for vines, veggies and even some trees and shrubs! Check out these tutorials and learn how to build a chic and easy DIY garden trellis! (Or two!)
