Why trellis netting is ideal

If you’re planting anything in your garden that grows on a vine – like cucumbers, grapes, squash, or peas – you’ll find that using a trellis is the best way to keep your garden organized, the veggies clean, and support your plants with heavier yields.

Wooden trellis

The tried-and-true method has been to build a wooden structure that would last through the seasons, sometimes near a planter bed, if it were part of the yard, but wood will decay over time – and while it may do the job of supporting the grow, it will end up being an eyesore when the season wraps up in the fall.

Trellis kit

A great way to have all the support but none of the wood-decay is the GeoPlanter Trellis Netting Kit by Sungrower. Sungrower Supply Trellis Netting provides optimal canopy management support while ensuring plants have optimal light and air exposure and are made to fit on your existing Geoplanter. This sounds great, but what are the benefits? Here are the top 3 ways Sungrower Supply Trellis Netting can help your garden without causing an eyesore in the fall:

Lightweight: Sungrower Supply Trellis Netting is made from clear 6-inch squares of lightweight polypropylene mesh makes installation effortless. Installation will take far less than an hour, and you’ll be guiding new vines along the squares in no time – providing them with optimal light and air exposure for excellent growing conditions.

Wooden trellis

Versatile: A wooden trellis is usually big, heavy, and set for the life of the garden. This would be beneficial if the plans for the garden never change, but growers generally like to try something new every couple of years. This can be problematic for them if the majority of the yard is dependent on supporting vine heavy plants. The GeoPlanter Trellis Netting Kit offers the same level of support for your plants, but with light components all around that are easy to switch, change around, and move throughout the yard when you want to do something different for a season!

Wooden trellis

Easy to store: The GeoPlanter Trellis Netting Kit is the opposite of the permanence a wooden trellis lends to your garden. Not feeling cucumbers this year? Not a problem! Take apart the 4-way PVC fittings, the PVC that supports the Geoplanter, clip the zip ties, cleanout and roll everything up for storage until you’re ready to bring the vines back! Just that easy, you can change the whole layout of your garden in less than a day.

You may want to start experiment with Sungrower Trellis Netting first if you’ve been growing on your old wooden trellis all this time, but a simple upgrade to the GeoPlanter Trellis Netting Kit with the Geoplanter of your chosen size can be a game-changer for the look and overall feel of your spring garden.

Add the built-in benefits of the aerated, geotextile fabric of the Geoplanter with the air root-pruning capabilities it has, and the result will be healthier, happier plants all around that will thank you with bigger yields, easier harvesting, and an all-around successful season!
