4 Factors To Consider While Selecting A Trellis For A Garden

A home garden requires a trellis to facilitate the growth of climber plants. It also adds aesthetic value to the space without compromising on space. There are many different types of materials available in the market for making a trellis, including wire mesh. Moreover, there are different conditions that need to be considered before installing one. This blog aims to cover all these topics.


How To Select Garden Trellis?


Plant Type

Depending on the type of climbing plant, the trellis netting can be lightweight or more robust. For instance, for beans and peas, a lighter netting might suffice, for tomatoes, a sturdier version is required. In any case, it is better to opt for a strong and stable trellis.


Mesh Size

Mesh size is a huge factor when it comes to selecting a trellis. A woven wire mesh with a smaller mesh size will guarantee better overall support for the plants. However, when it comes to harvesting plants, the same mesh size can become detrimental. The inverse is true for a trellis with a larger mesh size.



Depending on the type of material and its weight, the installation process of the trellis can also vary. For some materials, a separate support structure is required, while for others, it can be a freestanding structure, making the installation process a lot simpler.



Lastly, the cost of the trellis netting should also be considered. This will depend on the type of material, its durability, the total area of the trellis, the size of the garden and more. 


Considering these factors, it is evident that a metal wire mesh is the best option for trellis netting.
