Ideas and uses for Jarrett Fencing Trellis

Historically trellis was used as a framework to grow an assortment of vines and flowering climbers on. The word trellis derives from the French word treillage, meaning a latticework for supporting vines.

These days trellis is used in a number of different ways, e.g. to provide screening or a windbreak, to divide an area, as well as other structural and visual functions within a garden. Why not take a look at Jarrett Fencing’s great range of trellis, whether added to the existing fence, as a view through panel or placed above a panel it can offer support to larger plants and climbers, or be an ornamental backdrop.

Having the fruits above ground also prevents them from rotting, by not resting on poorly drained or wet soil.
In addition, of course, the ever popular use of trellis with an arbour and, or gate to give a welcome to visitors or, consider how trellis can bring further dimension to your garden.
