How to make the most of your garden trellis

If you’re looking to elevate the look of your garden fencing, a garden trellis is an excellent choice. At Welch Fencing, we offer a diverse range of trellises that can cater to all your gardening needs. Our trellises not only provide a rustic allure to your garden, but they’re also practical and functional too, helping to save space and provide the perfect location for your climbing plants to thrive. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out, here are a few ways to get the most out of your garden trellis.


Grow everything from fruit and vegetables to plant and flowers 

A trellis is a lattice-like wooden framework that can be used to grow plants, or add style and privacy to any garden. They’re a popular feature in both UK and Mediterranean gardens alike, especially in regions of Spain and Italy. Trellises are incredibly versatile fixtures that support various plants and flowers, including climbing roses, ivy, and wisteria. 

Gardening aficionados can also benefit from using trellises to save on garden space and grow a variety of fruits and vegetables vertically instead of occupying a room on the ground. A trellis is a wonderful solution for growing stunning plants and flowers above ground if you maybe don’t have a lot of space. If you lack grass or flower beds and would like an alternative to traditional plant pots, a trellis adorned with flowers can serve as a stunning centrepiece in your garden – making trellises a convenient option for any garden or yard, regardless of size.

Create a stunning statement wall with a garden trellis

If you have a plain brick wall in your garden, you can enhance it tenfold by adding a wooden trellis like our elite trellis and climbing plants. This easy DIY will quickly transform into a stunning garden feature that will surely be a focal point. Also, if you’re a fan of hosting, your beautiful trellis wall will make a charming and unique backdrop for any seating area or garden party photos!

It’s a much more wall-friendly alternative to wall-climbing plants that can, over time, damage the brickwork of your house. With a trellis, you can enjoy all the benefits of a plant wall without any of the wear! Just make sure to leave enough space for the plants to climb and breathe as they grow when fixing your trellis to the wall. 

Enhance the privacy of your garden with a trellis fence topper

A trellis fence topper is a great option if you want to add an extra layer of privacy to your garden. It provides a charming and homely cottage-esque look and can keep the outside world at bay without blocking any of the sunshine! Our arched and square trellises are the perfect solution for those wanting a taller fence without feeling boxed in. It also allows you to grow climbing plants along the top of your fence, creating a gorgeous and captivating look in your outdoor space. This nifty little DIY can be achieved in minutes with minimal effort and supplies, and it can easily be removed anytime! Plus, it’s an affordable way to create a cosy and secluded outdoor space for you and your family to enjoy. 

Those are just a few ways to make the most of your garden trellis! Now you’ve got the basics down, why not try experimenting with different plant and flower combinations to create a one-of-a-kind garden that will impress your visitors and keep your garden thriving?
