5 Garden Trellis Ideas For Decoration and Privacy

Climbing Plants On a Trellis

Easy to install, versatile and designed to suit all garden styles. A garden trellis is a simple, yet attractive addition to your garden that can maximise space, improve privacy and at the same time enhance aesthetic appeal.


What is a Trellis?

Trellises are a multi-purpose framework structure available in a range of sizes, shapes and designs meaning they can be seamlessly incorporated into any outdoor space.

Able to not only add a privacy-enhancing barrier, a garden trellis can be used to support climbing plants such as vines, flowers and even vegetables, offering greater airflow and exposure to sunlight.

Garden Trellises typically have three main applications –

  • Fence Top Trellis: Serving to add height and privacy, whilst not blocking out natural light, a trellis can be easily installed to existing fencing and is simple to remove if required. Maximising your vertical space and also providing increased security as a general deterrent for anyone who would attempt to climb over.
  • Freestanding Trellis: A freestanding trellis is often applied when flexibility is needed in that it can be installed anywhere within the garden, and moved or adapted to suit your changing needs. With the addition of climbing vines or plants, a freestanding trellis can be used as a natural divider to create a relaxing secluded area or in your garden with the added benefit of creating some shade on those hotter days.
  • Wall-Mounted Trellis: In gardens where space can be limited a wall-mounted trellis adds an eye-catching decorative touch and can even be used to hide any unsightly walls or structures. Whilst being effective at saving ground space, a wall-mounted trellis is a practical and attractive feature that can be used to increase the visual appeal of any garden, balcony or patio.

If you are considering adding a trellis to your garden, we have put together a list of 5 amazing garden trellises to provide you with some inspiration and ensure that you pick the correct trellis for your requirements, whether that be simple decoration or adding privacy/security.
