When I decided that the raised bed in my front yard needed a little height to add structure and color, my first thought was some sort of permanent structure, whether it be garden art or something a plant could grow on.
Metal, Freestanding Trellis
I looked for a way to include a flowering vine on a sturdy trellis. I found the perfect metal, rounded trellis to fit the bill. It’s very sturdy, resistant to rust, and when pushed far enough into the soil, will withstand toppling over.

I love the rounded/circular design of this trellis too. It’s simple and clean, yet elegant and organic in form. Perfect for my garden 🙂
Trellis In Container Gardens
I’ve used this five-foot freestanding trellis in a container garden before too. The only difficulty I had was that it was more prone to tipping over because the pot wasn’t deep enough to push the feet of the trellis into it for support.
This year, I’m growing a purple clematis on it, and I love how it looks. I’ve planted a cypress vine on it and a Mandevilla vine in previous years. Most vines will look great on this rounded trellis. But it’s nice if the vine isn’t too aggressive so that some of this structure shows through. It’s a piece of art all in itself.
Assembling the Rounded Trellis
The trellis will be shipped in several pieces in one box, so you will have to assemble it, but it is an easy task. There are screws and caps for each circular support and one large screw and ball at the top of the trellis. It is made of steel tubing, so it’s sturdy and has a decent heft to it.
I have taken this trellis with me as I moved to three different houses. It’s still standing and good as new, with some patina.
