*I will rate this product a 5 star [Check Details Here⇒>**https://www.facebook.com/Shedplans-1906203496273256/app/208195102528120** ]. When it comes to woodwork, Ryan certainly know his onions. This is the best compilation of shed building plans and designs. The bonuses are awesome. I highly recommend.*
I haven’t seen a wood buy list posted, so I thought I’d share. I just built this today, though made some very minor adjustments to the top and feet. Absolutely love it!
8 - 1” x 6” x 6’ cedar pickets
6 - 2” x 4” x 8’ pressure treated
2 - 4” x 4” x 8' pressure treated
2 - 1” x 4” x 8’ pressure treated
1 - 4’ x 8’ lattice
Hope this helps! Please keep in mind that if you use the directions from the link, the 2x1 is incorrect. She uses 2x4’s for the sides.
I just picked up some 15 year old cedar dog ear pickets that were taken down and stored in the garage rafters till now. I paid $25 for 25 of them and I think I'm going to make this trellis planter! What kind of 2x4's did you use? I just have never seen any that look that the ones you used. I can't wait to make this!
Im going to use this but add thinner 1x3 moldings for front to add a little depth and visual appeal. And prob make the top boards overhang a bit as well. may use vinyl lattice too(if cheaper) as im going to paint whole thing white.And Im going to make two.On each side of and existing archwayOtherwise I love the design.Thx for the inspiration
Wow. Great planter and fantastic videography. I need to build on against the fence , but it is a little sloped for runoff. I guess just adjust the feet to account for the slope? Back feet higher than front feet.
+TheNuyorker It's always a bit risky putting perennials in containers, but I do fairly well with mine if I remember to throw a little water on them every 2 weeks through the winter, even if there is snow on top of the soil surface! #1 reason they don't survive containers is because they dry out, #2 reason is that they don't have enough insulation, but this trellis container has a pretty good size reservoir so that wouldn't be a problem. :)
Dear . I am in new in gardening. Just intiated gardening by planting mint , penzi, salad leaves & tomatoes. Then I searched that if there is any good guidance or expert around.
I take you as my mentor now, you are away , I don't know where you are from or from which country, but I can feel that you are around.
I am under your coaching so thank you for making us good Gardner.
I loved your love to nature & soil.
Great inspiration for me.
Thank you & love, ❤
Just finished this project. A couple tips: if you use the link provided for your plans, as I did, it has the sides listed as 2x1's. Do NOT use 2x1's! They will not match up correctly. Not sure why the plans say that, as she is using 2x4's in the video, and that is what you should use.
Also, there is simply no way she attached the sides, then the back, then the front. Do the back first, laid down, then the sides, then the front. Again, in the video, she is clearly doing the back first.
If you're getting your wood at Home Depot or lowes, there usually isn't an oak screen trim, so I wouldn't bother looking for it. Pine or cedar are usually the only options in that size. I used pine and it works great.
Also! I didn't buy dimensional lumber for the plankings like she did. I used pallet wood. Instead of it being a solid plank all the way across the front, it was two rows of planks, butted up against each other and screwed down at the sides and the center post. This way may take a bit more creativity to get things (mostly) flush, but since you're lining it anyways, it'll work fine. I think I used four or five pallets.
+Melissa Kern Thanks for the comment! This video was actually the product of searching and searching for something like this and not really finding anything close, so I gave it a shot myself! Let me know how it goes if you decide to go for it! :) ~Laura
