To make a trellis frame, you need to prepare 4 plastic pipes of equal size. Depending on the area of the vegetable growing area, the homeowner can adjust the length of the plastic pipe to the best fit. Please note that the trellis should not be made too low because it will limit the space for growing vegetables, the trellis should be at least 1.2m high.
Let's use a 3-angle plastic pipe connector to fix the two plastic pipes together in the shape of an A. Do the same with the remaining 2 plastic pipes, we will have 4 pillars of the trellis.
Then use another long plastic pipe to connect the two pillars just made to complete the basic frame of the trellis

After completing the frame, we will proceed to the next step to finish the trellis. Please use the appropriate length of plastic pipes to fix to the two ends of the trellis frame, do the same for both sides of the trellis. Remember to use steel wire or soft garden wire to firmly fix the plastic pipes together.
