Pole Bean Trellis.

I made this trellis out of electrical conduit, ten feet long. I didnt cut any pieces. They are wired together at the top, anchored with wire tied to wooden stakes, with two poles running horizontally on both sides. The horizontals are connected with plastic wire ties. There is a guy wire at each end tethered to a stake. It made it all summer through every storm. It was wrapped with light weight bird netting for the plants to grow on. To reach the beans, for picking, you can just tear a hole to fit your hand through. I am quite encouraged that it survived every storm, and most of the materials can be reused year to year.
