Just A Bit Rustic



It was time to trim the clematis and it became obvious that a new trellis of some kind was needed. I've seen lots of pictures of bent wood garden trellises. I decided to give it a try. Ed cut three locust saplings and a nice long length of wild grape vine. After soaking the grape vine in water it was pliable enough to weave back and forth on the locust poles.

It's rustic, but for my first bent wood project It'll do. More free natural materials are available. Maybe the scarlet runner beans will be next.

Becky ... girl I think that is a fantastic way to make a trellis for the clematis ! what kind of clematis will be growing up on it ?
I bet when it covers it all it will look like it is all clematis hang in in mid air !
