Trellis for a curved wall

Hi

I'm new to the site so forgive me if this post isn't in the right forum. 

I have a garden with a section of curved wall and would like to add about a foot of trellis to the top but am struggling to find anywhere that sells bespoke trellis panels to suit. 

Can anyone recommend either an online supplier or a method to create something myself?

Thanks

Kev

    Those expandable willow trellis can curve, but I don't know how sturdy they will be.  You can go to Wilkos and ask if you can expand it and see if it would work.

    The Garden Trellis company do bespoke trellis but its not cheap, looks lovely though. They also sell coloured trellis too.

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

  • You could use builders' reinforcement mesh panels, in one of the lighter grades which would bend to follow the curve, and could be cut to size, but you would need to give them some form of support. It would depend how much weight they need to support, but you might be able to get some of those plastic coated metal 'canes' and wire it to them. They would be less visually intrusive than larger posts, but you would definitely need those if you want a lot of heavy climbers.

    Fix roofing battens vertically to the wall and then run wires horizontally stapled to each batten
