  3. Edible plant support – many of our designs specifically support the growing of fruit (e.g., blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, even kiwi fruit in sheltered and sunny spots) or vegetable vines (e.g., cucumbers, peas, runner beans, tomatoes, etc.,) This brings the chance of sustainable living and saving some shopping money!
  4. Multi-functional use – our contemporary trellises double as privacy screens or garden dividers and are a smart choice, you could also describe them as a focal point!

Ideas for positioning

You may have selected a contemporary fence panel from this page, but are wondering “Where do I position the trellis panel?" Here are some suggestions.


Why not opt for a classic use for your modern trellises and mount them against exterior walls? It is not just practical for climbing plants, it also adds an artistic focal point to any garden wall. But if you are not into drilling holes in walls, no worries. You can just set it up freestanding in the garden. They create an awesome focal point or even act as a divider for your outdoor space.


If you have outdoor fencing, why not “jazz it up” by attaching a contemporary trellis panel? It is like giving your garden fence a mini makeover, and it is fantastic for training climbing plants. For a stunning entrance, place your modern trellis over your garden path entrance, this is welcoming and looks lush. Additionally, consider wrapping trellises around your patio or seating area.

Balconies and terraces

If you have a balcony or terrace, fixing up a lattice trellis on your balcony railing is a genius way to make the most of limited space, using vertical gardening. For the green-fingered, installing trellises above raised garden beds is a great idea. This is perfect for growing vegetables or flowers up high, saving much-needed space. Finally, have you ever thought about using your trellis as a roof? If you have a pergola, drape a modern trellis over the top and enjoy a cool and shaded spot that is perfect for sunny days.
