Homemade PVC Tomato Grid Cage Gardening Project

Pre-made tomato cages are too small and weak for medium sized tomato plants, so someone has a homemade cage that is bigger and sturdier than the produced ones. This is PVC grid was made to support the tomato plants and a cost cheaper than a constructed tomato cage. For about $55,for a garden about 6×7, get plenty of 10′ pieces of 1/2″ PVC pipe, some X-shaped PVC connectors, a lot of T-shaped PVC connectors, tape measure, duct taps, and a saw that can cut through it.

Measure the PVC using the tape measure and cut off with a saw. The length of the cuts vary by garden size again, so be attentive to how long and wide it can be. This is a two-level cage 20” wide and 57” long; it will look like an extended tic-tac-dough board. It will be made to include central support because they cannot droop downward compared to the side. But they will take in a lot more tomatoes than other cages.

For those who have time on their hands to make their garden a better looking one, consider this DIY project. It has a lot of room and gives space for tomatoes to grow and expand in the garden space. Thanks to the use of PVC poles instead of wooden posts and netting, you can make your own tomatoes without problem. They can stand up on their own and gardens can go in and cut them out cleanly.
