One of Steve’s first trellises years ago was purchased by a friendly couple who happened to drive down our road and see trellises leaning up against every available vertical surface. They recently decided they needed a more substantial trellis for another space and chose the one Steve had made for the 2010 Portland Flower Show. Although it is fall in Maine, you can see how at home this trellis is in Biddeford Pool, and how perfect it will look when the perennials come up in the spring!
Below is the first of Steve’s trellises purchased by this couple. It’s clear how Steve’s style and construction have developed in the years since he started making garden ornaments and Adirondack style furniture. Also obvious is how even his simplest structure is captivating in the right environment.
