'PiantaLà' Has all of the Charm of a White Picket Fence Without the Commitment

Who could possibly resist the image of a rose rambling in an out of the white picket fence above a carpet of nasturtiums?

For many urban and small space gardeners a white picket fence is only but a dream. A dream we get to visit when we travel through the suburbs or small towns.

Fortunately, Italian designer Andrea Rekalidis has re-imagined the bucolic white picket fence as a portable and durable metal trellis.

PiantaLà can be used as a trellis where climbing vines can create a living privacy screen on a porch, deck, balcony, patio, or rooftop garden when inserted into planters.

Those gardeners lucky enough to have land to plant in--that want the look of a picket fence without the labor--can sink it into the ground.

Andrea’s charming fence is not yet available for sale, but it was a winner at the 2012 Sun.Lab International Outdoor Design Competition. So you will probably see it available for sale soon.
