Trellising next to each other

Does it work to have two or more trellises next to each other. For example, can I have a 4' long trellis at the north end of my garden running east-west and one foot south of that trellis have a second 4' long trellis also running east-west? I know I could set the trellises up like this but will the veggies on the southern trellis shade out those on the northern trellis? If 1' spacing doesn't work how much distance would be needed between trellises?


Northern Trellis XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

One foot gap

Second Trellis XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX


I'm thinking about doing with peas but am also wondering about other crops like pumpkins or melons.
