I'm in the process.  I have this massive fixation on climbing things, especially roses.

Today I took several bamboo arches and used cord and gorilla glue to create a frame.  Hopefully, if the glue lives up to its claims, it will be nice and solid in the morning and I can weave some cross-lines of hemp.

So I just felt like starting a Trellis thread:         Show 'em         Praise 'em         Advise and Explore!

Gorilla Glue sucks!  WAY too brittle -- like trying to bond things with pumice stone.  Went to market and got Tightbond woodglue. 

Trellis is starting to look pretty cool now...  Wink

They don't look crude in the pictures -- your whole yard looks very cool!
 
I will finally admit ignorance and ask: just what is rebar?  I've heard the term, and I know it implies big durability, but I don't really know what it is and how it handles...

Rebar is  a steel reinforcing bar, you can find it in Hone Depot/Lowes/hardware store by the cement.

I didn't know what it was until I met my husband, who was building a retaining wall out of cement.

The trellis  in the photos is beautiful!

 Shocked  OOoohh -- I know what you're talking about -- the metal rods that frame out & run through cement!  Wow, that would be durable!

My wee bamboo thingy has weathered its first storm unbroken and unbowed.   Smiley

Now if the sweetpeas will just sprout and start climbing... Once they do I'll see about posting pictures.
