Adding Garden Lattice to your Backyard

Adding Garden Lattice to your Backyard

Looking For a Local Contractor Fast?

June 13, 2007

With garden lattice, you will be able to change the entire look of your backyard with little monetary investment and time spent.  This is a form of lattice that is able to hold various plant structures as well as create a defined space for your yard.  In doing so, you will allow your backyard to be the complete garden that you've dreamt of, as well as a beautiful and peaceful place to go.  Here are some steps to help you add garden lattice to your yard:

The first thing you will want to do is plan out the structure of your garden lattice.  Do you want to enclose certain parts of your garden or simply create a larger border for your plants?  Try to sketch out your ideas on a piece of paper to get a better idea of what you will need to buy and how much this will cost you.  You can also clip ideas from home gardening magazines and try to adjust them to fit your backyard setting.

Next, you need to think about the plants you have when you choose garden lattice.  If you want to have climbing plants on the lattice, you need to make sure that your plants are able to do this or you will need to research plants that will do what you want them to do.  You might also want to look at the plants you have to see if they have deep or thick root structures that may interfere with the lattice you want to put into place.  If you have plants that will grow beyond the borders of your lattice, you might want to consider that into your plan as well.

Finally, you will want to shop for the garden lattice that you want in your yard.  You can find this lattice at local gardening stores as well as at wood supply stores.  Talk with others that have lattice in your neighborhood to see where they found their lattice work.
