Everyone needs a grapevine trellis

p1-CuteKidsWhen I designed my garden I was keeping in mind that I wanted my kids to want to be there with me.  That is why I created a trellis for my grapevines in the shape of a standard house outline.  I built it out of PVC pipe which I spray-painted bright yellow.  It is anchored in two 2′ x 3′ beds with a stretch of about 8′ of lawn under it.

I picture my girls having picnics in the shade of the grapevines.  A blanket spread out over the soft lawn.  Stealing berries and lounging.  That makes me happy!
