I have a young Wisteria (18" h) that I would like to grow along a trellis fence or screen about 7ft. high to provide privacy between my yard and the neighbors' driveway. Houses are close together and the yards are not large. I can put posts in the ground, and I can attach pre-made trellis panels, but I don't think I can make the pergola-type top section that the wisteria would drape over. Books and catogs seem to show only arbors & broad pergolas that create a tunnel or shelter effect, but I need a screen only. Are there sources for the top pieces in various sizes? I've looked at Brattle and like their look but I don't think they have what I need. Who else sells pre-cut wood?
Do I need to hire someone to build this? The landscape design companies in my area do some mighty grand stuff and probably wouldn't want to bother, and I'm not sure I can afford them anyway.
Any thoughts? Thanks
