For a quick and easy new look in your yard make this diy corner trellis or make one for each corner. Not only will it give your yard a new look but you can grow vining plants on it. You could grow flowers or vegetables. I would like it with Clematis or morning glories (in containers in the ground) in my front yard. I would also like a couple in the back for peas and cucumbers.
These looks pretty simple to make and there are good instructions, a video and a PDF file so anyone that can wield a couple of tools should be able to make these. The tutorial is from Bonnie Plants who says that if you cut your own wood you can finish one of these in about three hours and even less time if you have the wood cut for you.
They are 6 feet at the tallest point and 4 and a half feet wide. They make solar fairy lights for outdoors and I think these on the front corners on a yard with pretty flowers in the day time and fairy lights at night would be pretty stunning. They are such a simple design but they look very pretty.
