Have planted clematis and moonflower vines on two trellises. Just perfect size and height. Very good price point and quality for this purpose.

Not worth the trouble

Comments about : 5' Essex Round Trellis:

I've ordered a trellis before from Gardener's Supply, so I was expecting something made of heavier metal. While I got this on sale, I had to pay my welder $75 to weld the various fittings. Otherwise, they pull apart easily.

      Looks sturdier than it is

      By Mary TJ

      from Evanston, IL

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : 5' Essex Round Trellis:

      I love the look of this trellis, and the price was certainly right. As other reviews have suggested, though, it is not as sturdy a structure as it appears. Will be fine, I think, for my clematis, but think twice before getting it for large/heavy climbers.

      Finally, Nice Looking Obelisk that Doesn't Cost an Arm & Leg

      By Orcas Gardener

      from Orcas, Washington

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • attractive as well as useful

      Cons

      • slightly unstable

      Best Uses

        Comments about : 5' Essex Round Trellis:

        This Obelisk Suited our needs to a tee! Once pushed into the ground it was about 6 feet tall--a nice mid range size. It was affordable and looked nice on our steep downslope! Would've given it 5 stars, but the only drawback is that it is a little unstable and we had to secure it with a couple of pieces of re-bar at the base. For us, it was very useful for reining in a sprawling rugosa!

        It will provide the perfect support for my new clematis.

        Comments about : 5' Essex Round Trellis:

        We bought a fixer-upper that had a well pipe sticking just high enough to trip someone. My husband put in a concrete block/paver structure around it (which I had him paint black). I found a lovely pot to put on top...After finding the perfect color clematis, I saw your trellis. I knew instantly it would give a lovely place for my new clematis to climb. My next door neighbor loves the look. The trellis elevates the look of my home's woodland setting.

              Love this trellis, I ordered 2 large ones for my mature potted mandevilla. I've had them for a few months now and the mandevilla are climbing and happy. Super easy to install and they look great. I love that they come in pieces that fit easily together.
