Testing a Twine Trellis System
Our landscapers were confused why we insisted on having the “bad side” of the fence face us, and the good side face the neighbors. Honestly, I always thought the “bad side” looked better and offered more utility. We don’t have a lot of land to work with so every inch of space needs to be optimized vertically and horiztonally.
We tied several lengths of natural twine around the post and made wooden stakes to secure the line to the ground. We have the flexibility of adding more lines if needed. I’m also considering weaving in more twine to create a web effect for heavier climbing plants.
Recently, I just transplanted some fava beans and I am trying to train them up the twine. Fingers crossed. Updates soon…
