Gardening in America
Old Lattice Replaced

by Nancy Fletcher

Lowes had this lattice for 16.00 dollars a panel. For Four panels the cost was around 64.00 dollars. I didn't think that was bad for the difference it makes on the appearance at the front of the house. We were pleasantly surprised at how durable the plastic is. It was banged around a bit but didn't break at all even though it was very cold out and it could have been brittle. When the screws went into it there was no splitting either. Hopefully this will hold up for a longer period of time than the wood. The wood was fragile and any bump could break it. Also when the screws went into the previous wood lattice there was cracking.

Those vines you see on the first panel are some fake ones I hung up there just to see how the grape vines would look. Grape vines will be darker than this though and will show up better. I did see on a gardening show how Ivy is nice on these too since it stays green all winter. The grapes are more attractive in the summer though. My husband isn't fond of rose vines but I may sneak one in there. A monthy blooming climbing vine would be nice.
