What is the best way to build a fence to grow grapes for a backyard garden? Do you also need a fence for a blueberry and raspberry bush?

James,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Blueberry doesn't need a fence. Raspberry will benefit from two side by side horizontal wires or by tying them to a single wire and grapes will need a trellis. The following web sites show how to do each type:
