Lattice Trellis

A wall covered with climbing vines may look lovely, but in reality vines will wreak havoc on your house's siding. Better that you create a buffer between the foliage and the facade with a garden trellis. Not only will it provide the plants with a more appropriate host, but it will also give you something better than a blank wall to look at when summer's greenery fades. It is simple to turn lattice fencing and 2x4s into such a three-panel focal point. Put it in place, and invite your garden to new heights.
