Welcome to Lowe's
Make your deck or yard a little more private with this planter box and trellis. Grow some climbing plants or add a few vines to complete the look!
Before starting, you should also download the plan and familiarize yourself with the project.
Finish Building the Box
Note that the box will be two boards tall.
Assemble the Trellis Frame
Cut ten 1x4 pieces to a size of 62". Using 1 1/2" treated wood screws, attach five of the pieces to the back of the trellis frame. Ensure that the pieces are spaced out equally by placing one on each end, one in the middle, and one between each of the ends and the middle.
Install the Chevron Pattern
Since the 1x4 piece hides the cuts on the chevrons, you can keep things simple and cut them at a 90° angle. If you prefer to cut them at an angle, then trace their diagonals onto the trellis (step 3.6) to establish the cut angle. Use a sliding T-bevel or a protractor to measure the angle at the 1x4 vertical joints and transfer the measurement to your mitre saw.
Put the finishing touch on your project by heading to a Garden Centre to pick up some climbing plants!
