Attaching trellis

Hi All, any ideas how I can attach trellis to the top of this fence, there are no posts on my side. Thanks

    You'll need to bear in mind two things @staceyrose5. Fences have maximum heights in domestic settings, so attaching trellis looks like that could take it well over the height allowed. You'll need to check with your local regulations.
    If the fence isn't yours, you'll need to ask the owner of the fence if it's ok to attach anything to it.  :)

    The alternative is to put posts in on the inside of the fence and attach trellis to those, although it may look a bit odd. It might be better to make a completely separate screen to the inside.  :)

    Taking into account what Fg has said above, if it's your fence then you could screw some trellis to the top
