Building a Trellis out of Metal Conduit!

Last year I made a video on building a metal trellis out of metal electrical conduit.  It's secured in the ground with 1/2", four foot rebar and is SOLID and will never rot.

In the video below I show how to make that and how to make your own nylon trellis netting by hand.  The plus side to that is you can adjust the grid size, the down side is it takes a little time.  If you don't want to make the netting by hand, you can get a 5' x 15' package of netting pre-made at Wal-Mart.

I actually left my trellis' up all winter and the nylon was still in good shape this spring when I took them down to redo our raised beds.
