How to Shape a Fence Climbing Vine

What You'll Need

If you are trying to shape a fence climbing vine, there are a couple of great ways to do it. Here are a few steps to help you through the process.

Step 1 - Decide on a Design

Depending on the look that you are going for you can use either a trellis to shape your climbing vines or hooks in the fence. Many people use the trellis because you do not need to damage the fence and it adds an extra style element. However it is more of a personal decision and works either way.

Step 2 - Install Hooks or Trellis

A trellis can be leaned up against the fence. You can secure it with wires that wrap between the trellis and the around the fence. If you are going the hook route, you can drill holes and screw in hooks were you are looking to attach and guide the vines. Making the hooks bigger allows the vine room to grow.

Step 3 - Shape the Vine

Now that you have everything set up you can take your time shaping the vine how you like. Guide the vines through the hooks or around the trellis how you see fit.

Each one of these solutions work and can keep your vine thriving and your fence looking great.
