Rustic Redwood Branch Trellises

When I lived in the hills overlooking Silicon Valley, my garden was always getting munched by deer. I had to find a way to fence them out, but I was on a tight budget, so I used the materials at hand: windfall redwood branches. They were abundant, renewable, and free. Left on the ground under the trees, they were also a fire hazard that had to be cleared periodically.

Redwood branches make durable, attractive deer fences and trellises. Anchored in holes in the ground, the branches can be woven into unique trellises for growing green beans, peas, cucumbers, indeterminate tomatoes, thornless blackberries, and flowering vines of all kinds.

Two redwood trellises I installed in a garden in Saratoga. The large trellis on the left is 20 feet long and 10 to 12 feet high. Thornless blackberries are planted at intervals along the bottom, and green beans and flowering vines can be added seasonally. The smaller trellis on the right has clematises and sweet peas planted along the bottom. Photo by Steve Masley.

Side shot of woven redwood branch trellis. This type of trellis is great for growing tomatoes, climbing vegetables and fruits like green beans and blackberries, or flowers. If you point the leaders where you want them, the plants grow through the trellis and don't have to be tied. Photo by Steve Masley.
