Growing vegetables can be difficult without a good garden trellis, and now savvy DIY-ers can learn how to make a trellis in a snap. This tutorial shows you how to create a DIY Adjustable Garden Trellis, so you can customize how tall or short the trellis is based on what you need No more buying separate trellises for different vegetables; you can have a cucumber trellis, a pea trellis, and a bean vine trellis all in one. We love that the trellis is made out of wood because that makes it a cinch to paint. A few coats of paint will make this garden trellis pop so you can grow vegetables in style. This space-saving trellis is a must for DIY gardeners.

I love this DIY Adjustable Garden Trellis project. I'll be making 4 of them for this summer growing season. I have peas and green beans growing and this trellis will make picking so much easier. The project is well done with a good video and pictures. I can see these lasting for years. Thank you so much for sharing this free DIY project.

Wish if would have had this idea years ago because the method I used took forever and was costly. These wooden trellises look nice and the adjustable feature makes it so nice to accommodate a large variety of vegetables and flowers. These would allow for a gorgeous display of falling flowers cascading down each side for a brilliant display and blaze of color! Thanks for a great idea!

These are really useful! Love that these are adjustable, too! That'll be fantastic to reuse again and again.

Nice project for the garden! One could use scrap wood to make this or go ahead and buy 2 x 2s and 1 x 2s, which would not be very expensive. We would likely use this type of trellis for cucumbers and green beans. The project is well laid out and the video makes it look very easy to assemble. I also like that it is adjustable and that would make it easy to store in the off season.

The seed catalogs are here, snow is on the ground and it's time to plan this year's garden! I have been looking for a trellis for growing pole beans and this looks like just what I need. Big plus is that I can make it myself! I wonder if it would be stable if I made it wider than the instructions say?

I like the look of these trellises and the relative ease with which they can be built. As a general rule I don't grow vegetables, but there are a few plants that need trellises and these would work well to hold up the grape vines and support the massive clematis vines -- and I love to play with saws and hammers and the drill

Oh yeah! I hadn't thought about using these for trailing vines like my clematis. Great idea The Designing Penguin! I would be willing to paint those. If I use them in the garden for sugar snap peas, cukes and cantaloupe I won't paint them. This looks like a very sturdy option with clear directions that I can follow.
