Picking raspberries and growing raspberries is so much more enjoyable when you have a raspberry trellis installed in your berry patch. The berries are easier to reach and mulching the beds in the fall is a breeze. Building a traditional raspberry trellis is a great project for the beginning gardener and can be completed for less than $50!
To ensure pollination of your raspberries, build a simple orchard mason bee house by drilling holes in a 4x4 and giving it a shingle-roof overhang. Secure the house to a sunny trellis pole, and the bees will come.
