To make a bamboo garden trellis, the first step is to decide on the design. Try to be creative, but remember to consider where you'll be placing it, and what you'd like to grow on it. You can draw it out on paper, and measure it to make sure you'll get the right height and width.
A bamboo trellis is relatively simple to make. It doesn't require expensive materials, and all you need are a few bamboo poles. You can choose the size of the bamboo poles according to the size of the plants you plan to grow. Generally, a thicker bamboo pole will support heavier plants.
Bamboo trellises can be constructed easily, and they're surprisingly durable. Just make sure to purchase bamboo poles in large lengths at a hardware store. You can always add more as the plants grow. Once you have the size and shape you want, simply lay the bamboo poles on a lawn, six to eight inches apart. If you want them to look more natural, you can arrange them in a checkerboard pattern. To secure the poles to each other, use twine to tie them together. Be sure to wrap the twine multiple times before knotting.
Before you start weaving the bamboo, measure the length of the poles. Make sure that each bamboo pole is six to twelve inches longer than the distance between the bamboo poles. When weaving the bamboo, alternately pass the bamboo behind and in front of each stake. You should also place each bamboo pole six inches above the ground.
A bamboo trellis is an inexpensive way to add height to your garden. It serves as a privacy screen and adds vertical interest. Bamboo trellises are generally around 80cm long. You'll tie them together using a lashing knot, a knot that's commonly used to tie bundles of various objects.
A trellis can support a variety of plants. For instance, you can grow pole beans or cucumbers up it. But you'll need to build a sturdy trellis that can withstand the weight and thick vines of these vegetables. If you're planting heavy fruits or vines, you'll need to use a thicker bamboo pole.
Next, you'll need baling twine and bamboo stakes. Bamboo poles come in different lengths, and you'll need to select the length and width of the poles based on the size of the area where you'd like to grow your plants. You can also use zip ties to secure the poles.
If you'd like your bamboo garden trellis to last for several years, you can coat it with clear lacquer. This will make it more durable and prevent any pests from getting in.
