I’d ultimately like to secure these to the front of the wall so that my vines could be planted into the soil rather than have planter boxes, but since I have no experience attaching things to (or drilling into) brick, I may be over complicating the whole task.
How do I attach metal trellises (for privacy climbing vines) to brick
I have five metal trellises that I would like to attach to a low brick wall off located at the side of my house. There used to be a sunroom located here, but the previous owners tore it down. I have a fence surrounding my property, but the absence of the sunroom structure has left a huge space where someone could easily step over the low brick wall and easily gain access to my backyard. In any event, I am trying to upcycle these trellises to be used to grow climbing vines to provide some privacy and a little extra piece of mind. I’m not completely incompetent, but this project is completely outside of my wheelhouse. I don’t know if there is a clamp that could be drilled into the brick to hold these in place or if there is a bonding agent that could be used to adhere them. Any advice you could provide, or ideas that could steer me in the right direction, would be appreciated.

Carol Cole on Jul 20, 2018I LOVE THOSE, I think Lowes carry clamps that you put around the trellis then attach to the wall.Helpful Reply
Leslie Rush on Jul 20, 2018Thank you! These trellises were originally the corner pieces of a gazebo that had seen better days. I just sanded them down and repainted with Rustoleum Hammered paint & primer. I’m going to search for the clamps tonight. I apprecite the info!Helpful Reply
Dianne on Jul 21, 2018My husband attached a trellis to a brick structure by using a masonary bit in his drill and made holes just large enough to hold a molly and then screwed it to the wall. Been there ever since..Helpful Reply
Vikki on Jul 22, 2018I would think the easiest, no hassle way would be to drive 2 pieces of rebar into the ground on the outside for each trellis, and attach the trellis to the rebar with matching cable ties. That way you can set your trellises at whatever height you desire.Helpful Reply
