Lindsey (@mamanowwhat) showed off the gardening trick in a TikTok video.

With the help of her husband, she put up a tall curved trellis walkway.

She said her tomato plants grew eight feet tall thanks to the trellis.

The gardener explained that it was actually cattle fencing she bought in panels from Tractor Supply.

Behind-the-scenes footage revealed that the two had bent and shaped the panels to the desired curved frame.

She said they bent the panels into the shape of an arch and put them into their raised garden beds.

They then used stakes on each corner to secure them, so they wouldn’t blow away.

After guiding the branches of her tomato plants through the wire, she watched the magic happen as the plants wrapped themselves around the trellis.

Lindsey said the cattle fencing has been “so helpful.”

She advised her fellow gardeners to get cattle fencing at Tractor Supply to make their own DIY trellises.


The gardening guru didn’t say which brand she purchased, but a panel of Okbrand’s 16ft. x 50in. cattle fencing retails for $34.99 on the company’s website.

Lindsey added in the video’s caption that trellis gardening is now her favorite technique.

Experienced gardeners agreed that trellises proved efficient, especially when harvest time came around.

My grandmother did this with grapes in her backyard and it was the best.

“After using these, I am too lazy to pluck vegetables from the ground,” said one.

“Trellis tomatoes was the best thing I ever did for growing tomato vines. Staking vines upright isn’t the natural way to grow vines,” said another.

“My grandmother did this with grapes in her backyard and it was the best,” said a third.

One gardener suggested using the trick for other plants that also thrived with trellises.

“This works for cucumbers and zucchini too! And blackberries,” suggested one viewer.

Others thanked her for the tip, saying she inspired them to make their own garden trellises.

“I plan to get these for my cucumbers this year!” said one fan.
