Lattice Stix: Outdoor Trellis Art

Lattice is such a useful tool in garden design.  You can grow things on it, separate spaces with it, spruce up fences and gates, use it for to the top of an arbor or patio,  screen off unsightlies — it really is very useful — problem is, it can be very cheaply made, bland and unimaginative….unless you use Lattice Stix.  I am completely in love with this very affordable product, and have specified it on a couple projects.   The company has created high quality, ( see half laps, mortises, and hardwood dowels to secure the 100+ of parts in the screen) beautiful (see exposed decorative joinery, 1 1/2″ depth, sculptural quality) lattice that can be had in an abundance of styles or custom.  (see designs suitable for staid to modern; suitable for a glass box, a shingle bungalow, a ranch home, or a Chinese temple)

Love, Love, Love
