Trellises are structures that are constructed to support fruit trees and other upward growing plants. Not only are trellises functional, they also can add aesthetic flair.
Benefits of Recycled HDPE Plastic Lumber
Plastic lumber is impervious to rot, insects, moisture and mold. HDPE plastic lasts longer than traditional building materials because it can withstand the elements, and won’t break due to high winds or moisture, and looks great. Increase harvest and profits with this long-term solution that offers higher deflection properties than other materials. HDPE plastic lumber is sustainable and environmentally-friendly because Bedford products are engineered from post-consumer recyclables like milk jugs. HDPE plastic lumber also won’t absorb or leach any chemicals, making it ideal for organic systems.
What Bedford Technology Products for the Job?
FiberForce® by Bedford Technology is manufactured with fiberglass strand, which increases rigidity and strength. For trellis structures, this product is great because you can build it and forget it. The fiberglass increases strength performance characteristics, making it tougher than traditional building materials that won’t disrupt the natural growth of your plants.
Why Traditional Building Materials Fall Short
Traditionally constructed using wood or metal, these materials will break down over time, and no one wants to lose money because of repairs, replacements and other maintenance-related activities. Wooden trellises can easily break, crack and rot with continuous exposure to heavy trees and the outdoor elements. Metal can corrode, rust and break down over time, and can easily break or bend under pressure and weight from the growing plants. Instead use a material that is durable, tough and can outlast whatever Mother Nature can throw at it.
