Glue 2 lengths of the 3/4″ pipe together (repeat 4 more times to get five 20′ long pipes) and allow to cure for 24 hours. Cut the 1 1/4″ pipe to 2 1/2′ lengths.

Measure a 10′ by 7′ area and create line guides making sure to square the corners.

At 2′ intervals along the long side of the measured area, pound the 1 1/4″ pipe into the ground using a piece of 2×4 for cushioning so as not to damage the pipe.

Insert the 3/4″ pipe into the 1 1/4″ pipes creating the hoop.

Span the wire fence over the hoops and attach the fence to the pipe using rebar ties.

You can weave the vines through the wire fence or attach them with pantyhose, gardening tape, etc. I’d recommend attaching the vines (with whatever product/material you want) on the inside of the trellis, so the tomatoes can hang and not get stuck in the fence gaps.

This hoop house costs a total of $100 in materials, which certainly seems like a lot for this kind of trellis, but this thing is BIG!  It’s about 7′ wide, 10′ long, and 7′ high.

Being weather-resistant, UV resistant, and rust-resistant, the trellis can be left in place for years, and the fencing material allows a great deal of light to hit the ground allowing for ground crops if vines aren’t desired one season or another.

Additionally, shade cloth can be attached to the hoops to prevent burning for any crops that don’t particularly love the full sun in certain climates. 🙂

It also makes a great covered entry, outdoor dining area, or add some depth to your garden. If you have some shade-loving plants, you could plant them underneath the trellis canopy once it has grown.
