Project Overview

Lattice is great for growing creeping plants or to use for blocking off an area of your garden. We show you how to measure and install lattice for a fence.
Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Measure between your posts
2 Cut pieces for your lattice frame
3 Attach the surround to the lattice and screw it together
4 Attach lattice frame to the posts
  • Step 1. Measure between your posts

    In this example we already have posts in place. You need to measure between the posts to make sure the lattice will fit in between. Measure the lattice and then cut the lattice surround to fit. Transfer measuring marks onto the surround timber. You need to cut two widths and two lengths.
  • Step 2. Cut pieces for your lattice frame

    When we cut we will cut a 45degree miter so it gives a nice join and you don’t see any end ground. Square one end and cut a mitre on it. Measure from there along the short edge and cut your next mitre. Do this for the tops and bottoms and this gives you the pieces you need for your frame.

  • Step 3. Attach the surround to the lattice and screw it together

    Put the surround onto the lattice by placing lattice into the groove on the surround. Pre-drill the corners and screw them together. Repeat this all the way around.
  • Step 4. Attach lattice frame to the posts

    Place the lattice frame in between the posts. Pre-drill some holes in the surround and the posts and screw it in place.
