Mattress Spring Trellis

” There is no rubbish, only an item waiting for a purpose ”  is the kind of thinking that appeals to a new generation of self sufficient homesteaders.

If you take a mattress and strip the outer covering off of it, you will end up with strong wire frame that allows climbing fruits and vegetables to weave their way up and through as they grow.

Enclosing it in a wood frame adds support and gives it the ability to be permanently sunk into the ground with cement.  Here is a great tutorial showing how to create a garden arch but can be adapted to this project:  https://thehomesteadsurvival.com/build-single-timber-garden-arch-project/

Choose a color and spray paint the mattress springs to stop it from rusting.
