The Q&A Archives: Grape Trellises

Question: What is the best way to build a grape vine arbor? This is our first year raising grapes. B. Weathers Greenville, MS

Answer: You can grow grapes on a decorative archway or on a more standard trellis. It depends on how you want to incorporate them into your landscaping. Either way you still must provide a sturdy structure to support the weight of the ripe grapes. Garden centers and mail order catalogs can provide you with a variety of decorative structures. Grape trellises can be constructed from heavy posts and horizontal wires. You then train the grapes to grow along the wires.
