An obelisk trellis is a garden feature that is both practical and decorative, a classy support for your climbing plants. It is made with pine and cedar and reaches approximately 7' to the cap on top.

Two identical sides are needed to make the obelisk, and then joined with horizontal rails. All pieces are painted, then nailed. Our obelisk trellis is both quick and easy to make; specialized knowledge or tools are not required.
