I never photographed this corner because I was not a fan of the lattice. Thankfully, I found a few photos from Paul for the "before" shots.
The old trellis with wisteria blooming on May 14, 2018.
About a week earlier on May 5.
And again in April 2019.
And now the new trellis, looking north just as the wisteria was beginning to bloom on May 3 of this year.
And looking south at our neighbors.
Our design goals were modern and cheap, plus capable of surviving an aggressive old wisteria. We went with galvanized hog fencing on pressure treated lumber.
Here it is in mid July, with the vine nicely providing privacy and catching the western sun.
And this evening, blooming again.
From below, looking north and slightly west.
I love the wisteria when it is fully leafed out providing privacy; it is jarring in fall when the leaves drop. I debate growing a second evergreen vine up the opposite side (I'd add some sort of trellis ladder for it to climb from below, possibly from a large raised planter). But I am not sure what would pair well with a beast like wisteria, or if the two leaf shapes would clutter the trellis in summer. I do know I will be missing the lush green wall this winter!
The wisteria vine is an old monster, I particularly love its mossy trunk in winter.
