How to build an A-Framed Trellis for Runner Beans with Pictures

  Building an A-Framed Garden Trellis for Runner Beans is the best thing you can do. 

There are many sticks to use for this project, yet the bamboo sticks are ideal as they are slim, tough and durable.

You can use the bamboo A-frame trellis without having to dismantle it.

A-framed trellis panels

The A-Framed Garden Trellis is best for runner beans and other creeper plants that needed support. 

You have the option to build two trellis panels assemble them or build the A-framed structure in the garden. 

For a 4m x 4m A-framed trellis, you’ll need 21 bamboo sticks. 

 To build it, follow these steps:
  • Firstly, stake 6 sticks on each side to form an A-shape. (The best way to start is to make the front, middle and back As – we call them the 3As)
  • Secondly, tie long bamboo across the top of the 3As. (This is the length of the A-framed trellis panel).
  • Thirdly, put the other bamboo stick in between the spaces and tie them together. You will have to space them apart according to the number of plants you want to grow.
  • Then, tie 3 or 4 bamboo across (or diagonally) to strengthen the trellis panel.
  • Finally, your A-framed bamboo trellis is ready.
Your runner beans are going to adore the A-framed trellis.
Note that if you are going to build a trellis for planting the runner beans, you may have to stake them 20cm to 30cm apart. That means that you will need additional sticks, where necessary.
