Choosing the Best Orchard Wood Posts to Support Your Trellis

The most common architectural structures in private orchards to larger commercial agricultural farms are trellises. The trellis, originally referred to as treillage, was popularized in France by gardeners looking for a solution to hold up their vining plants. Trellises became more common in public and residential settings when King Louis XIV had them placed in the French Garden of Versailles.

Trellis design varies widely and there really are no limits to how creative the structure can be. Going by definition, a trellis is simply a structure with open framework and intersecting pieces of wood, bamboo, and other materials to provide horizontal, as well as vertical, support. Trellises can be quite ornate and beautiful in private or public gardens or rather bare-boned and utilitarian for agricultural purposes.

9 Reasons Wood Piling is the Best Choice for a Foundation

Piling construction remains one of the most effective methods of providing maximum support for structures.

Pile construction is often chosen over other methods for one of two reasons: either the surface substrate of the building site is weak, or the structure being built will be exceptionally heavy. Weak substrate, most often loose dirt and sand, obviously should not have a foundation built directly upon it. Even a fairly stable surface may still not be suitable for high-rise buildings, water tanks, bridges and similar unusually heavy buildings with concentrated loads.
