From the Back Cover
Containers and trellises give your garden structure and beauty, but they really only come in two types: flimsy and precious. If you find yourself wishing for garden accessories that support your plants in style without breaking your budget, the solution is simple: make them yourself.
Trellises, Planters & Raised Beds shows you how easy it is for anyone, regardless of skill level, to create lovely garden projects for just a fraction of the cost of products found in stores (but the 50 unique designs featured here can’t be found in stores, anyway). From the rustic charm of projects built with freshly cut branches, to a plant stand fabricated from galvanized buckets, to a classically elegant wood obelisk, you are sure to find a bushel of plans that you love. And best of all, these designs were created with gardeners in mind, so they can be built without a shop full of fancy tools.
A few common hand tools and the desire to make something unique and beautiful for your garden are all you need.
