Free Porch Trellis Plans
The Lowe’s creative ideas site has disposed of some of their plans. Perhaps this one will come back online (please complain to Lowe’s), but it might never reappear. I did find some instructions on an old LCI development site: http://lciadmin.lowescreativeideas.com/idea-library/projects/Porch_Trellis_0311.aspx I hope this helps someone.
Open porches are comfortable outdoor living spaces that lend themselves to people and plants. This Porch Trellis is a great framework for flowers and provides maximum privacy while still allowing sunlight and cool breezes. A different look than the typical backyard trellis, this modern design is simple and customizable.
The wood work how-to gives instructions for 4 columns, but can easily be edited to fit any porch length. With hooks in the negative spaces, hanging plants become framed artwork and with a little effort the the lower, thinner, slats can become home to morning glories or ivy.
