Making a Woven Trellis

It couldn't be easier to make a sturdy yet stylish trellis for peas, beans, or other climbing plants. This project uses just one material and takes very little effort and time. What could be better?! More information on how to choose the proper sizes and shapes for your plants in the full tutorial:
Reach for the sky peas! That trellis is sturdy enough to hold you all.
Start by placing a row of bamboo stakes solidly in the ground. Weave another length of bamboo back and forth between the stakes. Repeat with another stake but alternating the weave.
Keep going until you have a complete and very sturdy trellis.
Train your plants up through the first few poles and then let them do their thing from there...these peas know what to do!

    How do you attach the bamboo to another? Is it just pressure? or do you have to string tie the first ones, top and bottom and then use pressure? Nice design. Thanks for posting it.

    This has given me a terrific idea! We live in Arizona and would have to buy the bamboo poles. However, I do have Palo Verde trees in my yard which require constant trimming. As I trim branches, I can create poles that will work for trellises. Thanks!!
