Why Use A Wire Rope Trellis System?

You may have some questions about using wire rope trellis for your next garden project. Hopefully the answers below should clear up any queries:

As trellis systems require very few fixings, the impact on, or potential for damage to a building’s façade is minimal whilst the visual impact is maximised. Similarly, the system is set away from the wall so, with the correct plant choice, plants will not damage the façade and systems may be used with confidence on existing buildings, even those that may be listed.

  • - Stainless steel wire trellis is corrosion-resistant, allowing them to remain in excellent condition regardless of the weather to which they are exposed in garden settings. Unlike wooden trellis panels, steel wire trellis will not rot and need replacing, resulting in a long-term solution for landscaping needs.

  • - Our pre-packaged wire rope trellis systems come in in a range of sizes and designs, with widths and heights from 1 metre to 5 metres, and spacings between posts of either 330mm or 500mm. We also have the capability of working with our customers to design a bespoke cable trellis system exactly to your needs.
  • - The stainless steel trellis systems we supply are quick and easy to fit on either a stone wall or into wooden fence posts, saving time and money on larger projects.
  • - Stainless steel cable trellis allows you to achieve a high-end finish quickly and easily, without the need for specialist tools or having to bring in a third-party to fit it.

Our wire rope trellis systems are designed to be easy to fit for the home gardener, with no need for specialist tools. As such, we have produced easy-to-follow demonstration videos for installation of each system in our range:

The range of wire rope trellis systems we stock are all designed with different plant uses in mind:

- The Basic kit is suitable for light-weight trellis applications and training plants such as jasmine, rambling roses and other small climbing plants.

- The Standard kit makes it easy to add a green wall to your house. Suitable for any climbing plant, the system is perfect for creating a maintenance-free support to create your own living green wall.

  • - The Mini Pro kit is designed for plants such as clematis, honeysuckle, hops, rambling rose and trumpet creeper. Which plants prefer what type of support? Climbers grow in different ways and the way the plant grows will dictate the type of support you need. The speed it grows will dictate the spacing required between the supports and the distance it needs to be from the wall.

    • - Vines or Twisting Plants naturally grow vertically so in theory only need vertical supports. Wisteria (Wisteria Sinensis), Honeysuckles (Lonicera), Hops (Humulus Lupulus) and Morning glory (Ipomoea Hederacea) are all examples.

    • - Grid Systems provide the optimum support for leaf-stem and leaf climbers as they form coils and cling around their supports. Most varieties of Clematis and Nasturtiums are examples of the former and grape vines (Vitis), Passion flowers the latter.

    • - Long horizontal wires with a small vertical range are ideal for ramblers, scrambling plants and espalier trees such as climbing and rambler roses, bramble-like shrubs and winter-flowering jasmine.

  • It depends on the weight of the plant, material of the fixing point and size of the trellis required. In addition, whether you want a simple grid system or just horizontal or vertical wires.

    • - The TECNI MINI-PRO System can be used for both Grid and Horizontal/Vertical systems and is ideal for heavier plants such as Wisteria, Clematis, Honeysuckle, Trumpet Creeper.

    • - The TECNI Basic and TECNI Standard trellis systems are smaller and lighter than the MINI-PRO System and are ideal for domestic grid systems, horizontal and vertical wires with lighter/moderate planting.

    • - Our basic trellis system is ideal for smaller horizontal and vertical installations, simple and easy to install suitable for rambling roses and jasmine.
    • - A grid can be created using our Standard system and is available in both 330mm (0.33 metre) and 500mm (0.5 metre) square grids from 1 metre to 5 metres. Suitable for hops, blackberry and pyracantha.
