How long does it take for the grape vines to get that tall. how do you train the fruit trees to grow over? - how long does it take to get the grapes to grow that high?

It was mentioned that you can train apples ect to also cover the top. How is this done?

We are wanting to grow edible
landscape to be more self sufficient but need to be able to shade some west/east facing windows in the arizona sun. Any and all helps would be appreciated.

We would also like to shade the house to help lower cooling cost but would like to do it with edible landscape.

I was thinking of doing this in an area in back and make a siting area. Then do something similar along front and back of house but with different plants.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Vertical Gardens Raise the Limits for Landscapes
A traditional approach that's always appealing: grapes growing over an arbor with seating underneath. Imagine sitting in the shade on a warm day and simply reaching up to pick a handful of ripe grapes. Or better yet, sipping wine; it's certainly an appropriate use of the space. Just be sure to choose a surface beneath the arbor that fallen grapes won't permanently stain. Put out the chairs, open the wine and you're set.Caution: Grapes can be poisonous to pets, so keep the two apart.

Double-duty design. A vine-laden arbor provides shade for an outdoor dining room and heaps of fresh table grapes. These vigorous vines aren't too fussy about soil, can withstand periods of drought once established and, other than annual pruning and a little tying up, require little maintenance. Consider planting several varieties of grape on a large arbor for a cornucopia of fresh fruit.Vines are not the only fruit that can be trained to grow overhead. Although slower than vines, lemon, lime, fig, apple and pear — to name just a few — are great choices to cover an arbor or a pergola.Tip: Use a deciduous vine such as grape or kiwifruit where you want to have shade in the summer and sun in the winter.
