"Cheap-ish" Trellis Ideas?

7 years ago

Heya,

So I got some beans (pole beans... among others) and cucumbers... I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to make a trellis or something to hold them with.

We do have a wooden fence in the back... but that won't work. I'm hoping to get some ideas here...

I should mention - I am a NEW gardener and never really done this. My thoughts are PVC pipes as poles... and maybe a plastic wire mesh for a trellis. But... raises the question - how thick should the PVC pipes be? Also - how many foot of "trellis" per pole

Then the wire mesh - how "high" would be ideal. There's a 7 foot one

vs a 3.3 foot one

Hoping to get some advice/thoughts!

Thanks
