3 questions you need to ask before you buy a garden trellis

A garden trellis is an excellent addition to any garden, whether you’re looking to add a decorative element to your space or something to support your climbing plants. Our trellises come in various styles and sizes, so you’ve always got no shortage of options to consider when buying one of your own.

What size trellis do you want?

The size of your garden trellis is a really important factor to consider. It’s essential to select the right size so that it complements your garden space and the plants you’re planning to support. A small trellis may be suitable for a single plant or a small garden bed, while a larger trellis is ideal for a larger garden or multiple plants. Here at Welch Fencing for example, our rectangle frame diamond trellis are available in a variety of different widths to suit any garden space.

If you’re looking for something subtle that you can place out of the way in your garden, you might want to consider our 6ft x 1ft trellis. Alternatively, if you want to make your trellis a real feature of your garden, then you could opt for our larger 6ft x 6ft option. This will give your plants much more room to grow and climb, creating a visually interesting feature for your garden.

What kind of style do you want for your trellis?

You can take your pick from garden trellises in a range of different styles to suit a variety of tastes. While it’s not absolutely essential, most buyers like to select a style that matches their garden’s overall aesthetic, so that’s always something worth bearing in mind! We’ve got everything from square trellises, diamond trellises and arched trellises.

What’s more, our garden trellises have been dip treated or pressure treated to provide them with protection against rot, which in turn, gives them a longer life span. Plus, each and every one of our trellises can be painted to better suit your garden design should you wish to do so. Consider a bold splash of black paint for a sleek and modern look, or simply add some quality wood stain to emphasise the natural timber look of your trellis. The choice is yours!

How easy is it to maintain a trellis?

Our garden trellises are pressure treated to ensure longevity and rot resistance, and only require the occasional bit of maintenance to keep them looking their best. Our wooden trellises will require annual upkeep, such as staining and sealing, to help prevent rotting and weather damage in the long run. If you’re able to commit a small amount of time every year to trellis maintenance, then your trellis will look fantastic and stay strong for years to come.

In short, a garden trellis can be an excellent addition to any garden, and if you’re thinking of getting one, you’re in exactly the right place. As well as our extensive selection of garden trellises, we can also supply quality concrete fence posts, and a range of garden fence panels for you to choose from – providing you with a one-stop shop to get your garden looking exactly as you’d envisioned.
