A downspout trellis is an attractive way to hide downspouts. Now that is a great idea!!! They come in different lengths and different designs, but they all accomplish the same thing – making a downspout more attractive.
After you install the trellis, you want to start training your climbing vines or flowers to climb the trellis. There are many different types of flowers that make good climbing vines. Vines like clematis do very well growing up a trellis. They are very easy to maintain with the proper training. Climbing roses are another very popular vine that many people use in their landscaping. You can also use morning glories, wisteria, and many other types of flowering vines for climbing.
Climbing vine care is something that many people do not think about when they plant these flowers or vines for their landscaping. They let the climbing vines run wild, but this can lead to unsightly growth on your home. The vines should be trimmed regularly. It is best to trim them once a week when they are in full bloom. They will blossom well and look nice if you keep the pruning up to date. You can also do this when it is just starting to grow in the spring and fall as well, but this is less important than in the summer months because these plants tend to grow faster during the summer months.
