    If not using treated lumber the wood will eventually break down. You can use a twin to queen bed frame (depending on how large you want it to be) for the top.

    Depending on type of grape vine and other factors the grape usually grows quiet well in the first 2-3 yrs some can take up to 5 yrs to show growth but once it does it flourishes. Each post has a grape vine this isnt one large grape vine it is several trained up each post then they grow along the top. They can also be trained up lattice or ladders or you can make a lean-to (basically a wall of lattice type or other material that leans against a fence,wall,etc).

    What ever you do don't place them near your home itself. I've done landscaping for a living and sen them over time take over a wall of the house causing damage

    Grape vines will produce fruit, unless the young clusters are removed early in the growing season as they develop. During the warm months, the fruit matures and ripens, and the vines may need to be trimmed/pruned to keep them "neat and tidy", but no real mess. If left on the vine after ripening, thru the late fall and winter, grapes will drop. In the Intermountain West, the grape vines over the pergola in my front yard (south-facing) are at their messiest right now. I choose to leave the grapes on the vine thru the winter for the birds to eat in the early spring. Larger species will eat them from the vine, while smaller species will eat the fruit that dropped to the patio. I sweep up the dropped fruit occasionally, and at some point soon, will clean up the whole mess.... A sturdy broom, dustpan, and a trash bag are all I need. To me, it's all worth it:. Shade in the summer; providing safe habitat for nesters and visitors; one less fall chore; watching nature out my window. Not to mention fresh fruit ad libitum in the fall. And, once established, (many) grape varieties are drought tolerant.
