Simple Bamboo Trellis

Bamboo poles make an excellent garden trellis.

By Willi Evans Galloway


No special tools or DIY skills are needed for this project. All you need are 3 bamboo poles, some heavy-duty twine, a shovel, scissors, and a zip tie. This trellis can be used by itself or as part of a larger vertical gardening trellis system. It's perfect for peas, beans, cucumbers, or anything you want to get up off the ground.

To make the loop take the pointy end of the zip-tie, insert it into the square end and pull. You'll know you did it right when you hear a zip noise. Be sure to use a sunlight resistant zip-tie.
