Trellis has been around for a long time, dating back even to Roman times where they would use it in a much similar way, decorating and dividing up their outdoor spaces. But what are the advantages of trellis and trellis fencing and how can they help to enhance our gardens? There are actually several ways in which you can benefit from trellis in your garden and this month we’re going to explore just a few of the main reasons people use wooden trellis.
Our gardens offer us some peace, quiet and sanctuary from the world and the best thing about them is that we can adapt and decorate them on whatever way we see fit. By adding trellis fencing you are giving your perimeter something a little more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. A simple trim along the top of the fence is all it takes to add elegance to what is usually a fairly standard feature of the garden without being loud or drawing your attention away from any features you may have in the garden.
If you add trellis to the top of your fence you’re creating an even greater barrier to your garden and the surrounding space outside. The trellis section allows you to have plants which wrap themselves in and out of the gaps, by using a thorny or sharp flowering plant you create a greater deterrent for anyone thinking of scaling your fences.
With standard square sections of wooden trellis from Harrow Fencing you can create any sized partitioning you want for your garden. By using trellis to break up your garden you can create different sections and potentially give the illusion of more space in your garden. As well as giving the impression of having more space, partitioning gives you a way to direct the flow of your garden when you show people around.
Using the trellis options available you can give your garden added privacy, either concealing your garden shed behind the plant foliage growing around the trellis, or to create a space where you can enjoy the garden out of the view of your neighbours and homes which surround your property. Creating shady little spaces isn’t just beneficial for people, it can also help with the growing of plants and flowers which can’t face too much direct sunlight.
At Harrow Fencing we have a fantastic range of trellis options for you to utilise in your garden. We have the latticed Omega fencing with trellis built in or you can choose from concave or convex portions of trellis to add to your fencing. If you want something a little different from the standard square trellis you could opt for diamond trellis for your garden.
