And so, the snow is coming down and it's time to equip and refine your garden plot. How to make it the most attractive? We need to organize some beautiful flower beds. To do this, we want to tell you exactly what they can be.
But before you start breaking flower beds, you should prepare a garden: lay a beautiful lawn and divide it into different zones with the help of narrow paved paths. They will harmoniously divide the space and allow your guests to enjoy beautiful floral creations.
What is a trellis and how did they come into our lives?
A trellis is a device that resembles a lattice in shape and serves as a point for supporting plants: raspberries, grapes, etc. But, like any good invention, it perfectly combines beauty and functionality, which makes it indispensable when decorating a plot.
Trellises can be wooden, metal or plastic. You will be able to choose the material that suits you. And this allows you to use the design for the design of suburban areas of various styles: classic, modern, etc.
The first mention of a trellis for grapes, as a decorative element, can be traced back several centuries ago. She managed to maintain her popularity for a long time and even now she is recognized as an undoubted element of any well-groomed garden.
The design came to Russia from Europe, where it was used to decorate the garden space. Rose trellises were especially popular. Today, when vertical, climbing plants are back in fashion, trellises are experiencing the peak of demand and popularity again.
Trellises perfectly complement plants, highlighting their brightest features. A plant that has been given the opportunity to stretch vertically absorbs the energy of the sun much better. And, accordingly, it grows faster and has a healthier shade.
Having learned how to create trellises with your own hands, you can remake the old, terrible fence, adapting it for any decorative vine. Or by planting a plant in a certain place, you can close the view on the unsightly parts of the site. Or arrange an interesting gazebo by placing a trellis instead of a roof.
Trellises are perfect for creating a living fence. Having placed them correctly, you can fence off a recreation area or a place with a swimming pool, fountain, etc. Any space with such an original fence will look stylish and advantageous.
Types of trellises and which material is better to choose
The main materials are: plastic, wood, metal alloys. Small wooden slats are usually chosen for dachas. About 15 mm wide.
Before making a trellis, even at the frame planning stage, you need to take into account the dimensions of the future plant and its growth potential. The more voluminous the plant and its leaves are, the more durable and reliable the frame should be.
The appearance and shape can be completely different. Examples of trellises can be seen in the photo. The design is limited only by your imagination and physical abilities, but you can always hire a designer and a craftsman to make the design.
An important point is that the reliability and stability of the structure directly depends on the scale of the cells. The larger the scale, the less reliable and stable the whole structure will be. And small cells will create a powerful, reliable and secure structure.
It was found that the best option would be cells of no more than 100 mm. The bars and slats are attached to each other with nails or any similar materials.
It is important not only to choose the scale of the cells well, but also to make the design uniform. And the cells should be of the same shape, design and size throughout the entire vertical.
As an interesting design solution, you can make several vertical or horizontal rows, with smaller or larger elements in diameter. But, remember that everything should be in moderation and such refinements affect the reliability of the design.
If we talk about the types of trellises, then we can distinguish the shape of a square, triangle and rectangle in wooden elements. Plastic and metal are unlimited in design, just like wood.
Unusual materials when creating a trellis
In an effort to save on materials or in a desire to adapt unnecessary junk, we often find interesting solutions. We share them on the Internet and they are gaining popularity. For example, now trellises made of plastic pipes and remnants of reinforcement structures have become popular.
This technique is suitable for creating a heavy-duty frame. It is able to withstand even a large amount of ripe grapes.
To create a design , you need:
- Plastic pipe with a length of about 60 cm and a width of 1.3 cm.
- Metal clips with a screw.
- A tool for working on metal.
The most important step is the correct measurements and, based on them, accurate calculations. If we make a mistake here, the design may not work out or its appearance, stability, etc. will suffer. The above materials are enough for a trellis 250-300 cm wide . The length will vary depending on the number of plastic pipes.
The steps of creating a trellis step by step:
- the armature is divided in half, each should be 150 cm long;
- 150 cm of fittings are placed in the corners of the future structure, they should go into the ground by 40-60 cm;
- every meter it is necessary to drive additional supports into the ground;
- pipes are put on top of all protruding supports, which forms the basis for the structure;
- further, with the help of clips, a longitudinal row is created, the distance between them should be about 70 cm.
The result is a very durable, and most importantly, safe design. It is able to withstand even particularly powerful vines.
And most importantly, the materials for its manufacture often remain after suburban repairs, and the service life is much higher than that of structures made of natural materials. Since plastic is not susceptible to rotting, it is not afraid of moisture, dirt or temperature changes.
