Invisible Trellis

Martha Stewart Living, March 2002

Vines appear to defy gravity -- and let your wall show through -- when they climb without supportive woodwork. Eyehooks screwed into siding or walls and networks of medium-gauge wire hold delicate vines. (Heavier climbers, such as roses, will need heavy-gauge wire.) Design a grid by placing eyehooks 12 to 16 inches apart and running wire through them. Or you can follow one of our designs, placing eyehooks at intersections. Support wires across a large expanse with hooks every 2 feet. To install eyehooks in a brick or another masonry surface, use a masonry drill.
