I decided to use some recycled PVC pipe to build a proof of concept trwllis system that would be moduler and easilly disassemble in off season. This set up is currently in my veggie garden plot, but proves th usability of the design and ease of use. The legs and top rail are 1.25 PVC sched. 40 pipe and 5 T-connectors and One slip fitting. The slip fitting was required because I am recycling the pipe and fittings from another project. So my total cost for this is exactly 79 Cents. I omly glued the pipe at the top rail wher it goes into the T-fitting on one side, the center and the small sections are not glued to increase ths ability to adjust the height and spread of the legs. Hope you enjoy the design and I will post the 20 foot tall 40 foot long trellis that was proven by this small scale miniature. As it stands it is just over 7 feet tall on 8 foot legs and the center section is 8 feet plus 2 extra feet on each end for a total of 12 feet. The down lines will be even with the legs and the center section will be used for something that appreciates a bit o' shade. I think the tomatoes I have will enjoy the climb. So whaddaya think of my recycled trellis?
