Introduction

You can make this metal garden arch trellis from just $25 of steel rebar. And you won''ll show you how to bend the arches and attach the decorative circles with wire.

The materials for our trellis cost less than $25. For comparison, a welded metal or high-end vinyl trellis costs several hundred dollars. You''ll be driving stakes and setting the rebar arches about 18 in. into the ground.

Step 2

For  Metal Garden Arch, First Cut the Rebar into Stakes

Family Handyman

To create that swooping arch from the 1/2-in. rebar, make a simple bending jig on the ground. Cut the 10-ft. length of 1/2-in. rebar into ten 10-in.-long stakes. Saw about two-thirds of the way through with a hacksaw, then snap off the stake.

Step 3

Use Chalk to Make an Arc

DIY Wood Bed From Pine Boardshow to DIY Wood Bed From Pine Boards for Family Handyman

Drive one rebar stake into the ground and tie a 3-ft. string to it. When you pull the string taut, you create a compass and can mark a smooth arc with chalk. Mark a 3-ft.-radius arc on the lawn using the string to guide the chalk bottle.

Step 4

Drive Stakes in the Arc

Space nine stakes evenly around the semicircle, and drive them down about 5 in. Mark the middle stake with a string.

The 3-ft. radius makes an arch that will span 6 ft. You can make it larger or slightly smaller if you want. But we found that bending 1/2-in. rebar into a 2-ft. radius is difficult.

Step 5

Bend the Rebar into Shape

Family HandymanFamily Handyman

Rebar may kink when you bend it, so we inserted a cushion (a 9-ft. length of plastic garage door stop molding; available at home centers) between the rebar and the stakes to soften the bend. You can use some other firm but flexible item, like vinyl siding or a strip of flexible hardboard to cushion the rebar as well.

To bend the arches, hold the rebar at the ends while you bend it to keep the arch smooth. With a helper, center the rebar on the middle stake and push the ends around the 1 last update 2020/07/10 the semicircle.

DIY Wood Bed From Pine Boardshow to DIY Wood Bed From Pine Boards for Chances are your rebar arches will look a bit irregular at first. Don''ll look more balanced. However, they may never be perfect. Resist the temptation to fix them. A little pressure here, a little push there and the next thing you know, you''s better to soldier on and attach the rebar circles-the trellis will come together nicely. Bumps that were driving me wild eventually vanished beneath the greenery.
