Wooden Trellises: Special Shapes

In this section and its subpages, you will find photos of wooden trellis systems with other than the classical vertical lathing. These are mainly: the checkered patterns (square grids), the 'ladder trellis' (dominant horizontal rungs) and fan shapes. Artistic "treillages" and other particularly unusual forms will also be mentioned.
