Reaching New Heights: Trellises Elevate Your Gardening Game

Growing greenery on a garden trellis - whether in the form of a fruit, flower or vegetable - not only provides weight support for our denser plantings, but can also make it easier to harvest product, allow easier access to pollinators, and provide a barrier for any four-legged foes that want to snack on the fruits of your labor.

In addition to offering a variety of eco-friendly raised garden beds, you can find Vego Garden wall and arched trellises in the Add-Ons tab. We also have rolling and self-watering mini planters with trellises for gardeners looking to maximize small or indoor gardening spaces.

In case you missed it, in Part 1 of our Trellis series, learn more about the most popular climbing vegetables. 

“Climbing vegetables are perfect for vertical gardeners,” said Vego Garden Blogger Arietza. “For a vertical garden to work, you need a sturdy trellis.”

“Functionality is key when selecting climbing vines for your trellises,” Arietza said. “Not only do they enhance the beauty of your outdoor space, but they also offer practical advantages such as creating shade and providing natural privacy screens.”
