Since it was such a small space, we decided to put some Clematis in there since it will grow but not be too bushy for the space.
It came with a tiny bamboo trellis, but it was so small the Clematis had no where to go and started dying. So I headed up to Home Depot and grabbed a trellis and a trusty can of Rustoleum spray paint and created my own custom trellis to match the house. What once looked like this:
Now looks like this:
As soon as I added it, the Clematis started growing like Jack's beanstalk.
It just looks so nice when you're coming up the drive. I can't wait until it fully engulfs the trellis.
As soon as it grows past the second horizontal bar, I am going to remove the original bamboo trellis.
PS: Excuse the messy mulch. With all of the crazy rain and winds we've been having, our pristine new much is full of leaves and petals. I pick them out of there every day but it just doesn't seem to make a difference. Ack! Anyone else have mulch anxiety like I do? Let me here a "trell-yes!" (yes, that was a trellis pun.)
