The most appealing thing about a garden is you can find pops of colors blended together there. You can add more colors and jazz your garden up by making these colourful trellises.

9. Chic Garden Trellis for Contemporary Backyard Landscape
Wood planks are the top-notch choice when it comes to fencing and adding more privacy. However, they can be somewhat dull. Therefore, they deserve decorating with this trellis idea.
The idea is to incorporate climbing plants to form a certain pattern on the fence. To get this look, you need to envision what pattern you want to adorn your fence – any pattern will do.
Once you’ve known what pattern that will suit your fence and décor best, begin to mark the spot where you are going to screw eye hooks. Once the eye hooks have been screwed in place, thread and secure wire.
This wire will support your plants.
Now, this is the fun part – entwine your plant around the wire.
You don’t simply entwine it, though. Place the pots close to the fence and close enough to the lowest part of the pattern. Make sure the plants can reach it.
Then, begin to entwine it. And that’s it!
And this idea can also be implemented to your stark wall.
8. Add More Privacy with Wooden Lattices
Lattice work is usually added to complete the landscape of a pergola or a decking. It is decorative but sometimes also used to add some privacy too. However, its conventional pattern doesn’t usually provide ultimate privacy that people are looking for. For that reason, spare several weekend hours and add climbing plants on it.
First, you will simply be needed to place your potted plants as close to the lattice panel as possible, and begin to thread the plants. But be careful! Don’t wrap the panel firmly. Gently entwine the panel to encourage new growth, instead.
