Help, want to build/install trellis panels..uncertain.
We would like to build and install two trellis panels on the back of the house. The area to cover is about 9ft high by 3ft wide. I want a "working trellis" to grow vines on and from a casual look at the trellis panels available at Home Depot, it doesn't appear the wood pieces would be a good thickness for twining vines. I am thinking of growing climbing roses, but not sure. Might also like to add clematis and/or morning glory.
So if I can't just buy and frame an already made piece of trellis, that leaves us to build our own. Not sure what materials to use, how to construct, how much of a post has to go into the ground, whether to use metal piple and attach the trellis panel to those, do I have to hinge it to allow getting behind it, how much space should I leave between the house and the panel, whether I can actually screw holes into the vinyl siding?
As you can see, amateurs here. We have basic woodworking and tool skills and feel we can do it. Maybe we need a project plan or something.
Anyone here that can direct us to the right information?
