Adding Trellis to existing fence panels or walls is a common customisation our customers make. The possibilities are endless with our ranges of Trellis, from extending boundaries to adding a decorative feature to your garden.
Advantages of Trellis
- Add extra height to a fence, without reducing light
- Increase fence height making the fence more difficult to climb
- Add decorative feature that will make your fence panels look more aesthetically pleasing
- Help support climbing plants with trellis and extend your greenery

Most commonly 0.30m or 0.43m high trellis panels are used as trellis toppers with 1.52m or sometimes 1.65m fence panels. Remember that a gravel board needs to be included so, this will raise the height of the fence by another 150mm. If you fence and trellis topper exceeds 2m you may need to get planning permission so be careful not to go over.
We recommend using slotted Jakposts when adding trellis toppers to a fence, it makes the whole fencing run much more secure and stable and also easy to install. It also has the advantage that the panels can be secured to the posts with screws stopping people from easily lifting the panels out at the same time, holding the whole fence together.
