What you need to get started
- Miter Box to cut straight lines on PVC Pipe
- A Sharpie marker
- Drill with 9/32 bit
- Yardstick to mark 6" marks on sides
- Tape measure to mark PVC pipe where you need to cut
- PVC Cement
- Rubber mallet to secure PVC pipe and fitting
- PVC pipe one 7' x 6' trellis needs 33 feet
- PVC joints (2 elbows, 3 Tees, one cross)
- Clotheslines approximately 125'
Tom tied the vertical clotheslines first.
What I like most about my PVC Trellis
- PVC pipe will last virtually forever (unlike wood).
- I could make the width the exact dimensions of our raised beds. Not to short or long.
- Simple to cut and assemble.
- Fairly inexpensive to make.
- You can't buy a trellis this big. You'd have to buy several and piece them together.
