    Hi Denise. If you don't want to drill through the siding you could attached landscaping spikes to the bottom of the trellis and put it into the ground as close to the house as you can.

    really need to check into your siding warranty/guarantee before doing something like this it will make it useless. Use long metal fence posts pounded in ground not too close to house(so damages to not incur to siding or foundation from vines,also keeps bugs/rodents from climbing up trellis onto house) then attach the trellis to the metal posts using metal brackets,these will provide adequate support for trellis,plants on trellis and protection from the wind or storms knocking it over up against house causing damages;posts at each side/section of trellis if you are putting them beside each other;depending how tall the trellis is get fence t-post according the taller the trellis the taller the post needed (the posts come 3ft-10ft tall) get online or hardware store or barn supply stores use pipe straps screwed into trellis(wood? vinyl? metal?) to hold it onto metal t-posts

    Hi Denise,

    You can use cup hooks so you can lift off and on if necessary.

    HI Denise, how about purchasing2 more trellises and you can stick them in the ground and tie them to each other forming a triangle to have them stand in the flower bed, I would not attach anything to the siding, don't drill into it. You could also use command strips to stick on then tie the trellis to them.
