White trellis work in the garden

White is so cooling. I always plant a lot of white flowers in the garden--especially in the South we need to trick ourselves into thinking it is cooler than it really is out there.
My back garden is fenced in and it is an ugly wood fence that all of us must have in the development. The downside of being in the burbs I guess. 
I have been thinking a lot about adding white trellis work in front of the ugly fence and feel it would make garden lighter and cooler and more secluded than it is now. We are planting more pink climbing roses next spring in the back and I love the look of roses on white. The top photo of the roses that I found on Pinterest is what got my mind thinking in this direction. 
I would use the polyurethane material so it would not warp.
Does anyone have an opinion or experience with this material in fence/trellis form? 
Have a Pink day!


  1. Gorgeous! Good luck with your project.

  2. Hi marie,
    love your blog. The vinyl trellis looks so cheap. I purchased a privacy fence trellis from Wayside by Yardistry. It looks gorgeous. It's cedar and has a 5 year warranty. It comes in a fade greyish green color but you could spray paint it white. I have a photo of it in my facebook site K Lacombe designs.

  3. Thanks for the tip I will check it out!
