Do you want to grow your own vegetables, but don't want to keep up with the weeding of a traditional vegetable garden? You can easily build a DIY vegetable arbor to grow your vegetables vertically! The advantage of a vertical garden is that it takes up less space, which is perfect for smaller backyards. A vegetable arbor also keeps your vegetables off the ground which keeps them clean

For my DIY vegetable arbor I used pressure treated lumber. This would look great with cedar, but will add some cost to your project. You can find the full cut list and detailed plans. You can easily finish this project in a weekend, especially if you have a bit of help.

Start by building the raised boxes for the vegetables. I built two of the same sized box and then hammered them into the ground.

The next step is to built the arbor frame. Using pressure treated lumber, attach the posts to the raised vegetable boxes. Finish off with the cross braces to add some strength to the entire structure.

Next is the netting for the vegetables to go up. I stapled the netting onto the frame using a stapler. Continue stapling the netting until the entire vegetable arbor is covered.
