How to Build a Raspberry Trellis




Set Fence Posts

Use a posthole digger to dig two holes, 2 feet deep and about 20 feet apart. Set posts in cement following the directions on the back of the concrete bag and let the cement harden overnight.

Pre-Drill Holes

Pre-drill four holes in the center of each 2-foot and 3-foot board.

 Attach Crosspieces to Posts

Place the 36-inch crosspiece 18 inches from the top of your post, level it and drill four wood screws through the board and into the fence post. Then, place the 24-inch crosspiece approximately 18 inches from the ground, level it and drill four wood screws through the board and into the fence post.

Attach Screw Eyes to Crosspieces

Screw eyes hold the support wires and should be placed on the inside of your trellis. Place screw eyes approximately two inches from the edge of your crosspieces and screw them into the board.

Thread Wire

Stretch the galvanized wire taut between the screw eyes from one end of the trellis to the other.
