Built a trellis for my beans and cucumbers for the 2015 garden. Bending the conduit was a trip, but easier than I thought. I may add a couple more sections before I plant this spring.

Too cool! That's exactly what I've been meaning to do! I'm thinking about using PVC just because it's flexible and easier to bend. Plus beens and cukes not that heavy.

Let me know how yours holds up

Take a look at this video. I did this to bend the 1/2 inch electrical conduit and it worked quite well. I used a conduit coupler on each side of the arch and attached straight pieces of conduit. I cut 1 ft pieces of 3/4 inch conduit, pounded it into the ground, then slid the 1/2 inch straight legs right in. The fence is attached with plastic tie wraps. All in all, pretty easy.

That is absolutely awesome. Genius. And I'm convinced now this is something I will do.

I loved the 2x4 idea there to keep it straight and hold in place while bending.

Thanks for sharing this.

Can't believe I start seeds in 2 mths. Will start a new thread as usual. :-)
