After I decorspread new mulch around the base of my rose bush I noticed how the newly formed buds were weighing heavy and causing the bush to droop. I knew that the bush needed support to stand up so the roses could be admired when they bloom. I began to shop around for a trellis and found an attractive, affordable one at Walmart.
The trellis that I selected is constructed with iron wire and has a black powder coating. The color looks good with the freshly installed classic black mulch where the rose bush resides and the navajo red back deck next to the flower bed. It has a V shape construction and is 60 inches high and 26.25 inches wide at the top where it flares out. It was easy to install; simply push it in the ground next to the rose bush and gently wrap the bush around the wire. After I installed the trellis I could not help but notice how dirty the house looked behind the roses. I thought that the siding on this section of the house could use a pressure wash to enhance the beauty of the roses.
A trellis is an excellent piece of outdoor decor to support climbing plants and vines. While a trellis can be an attractive item of decor on its own I prefer a simple one that supports the plant so that the plant may blossom into a beautiful bush while the trellis fades into the background.
