Western Timber Frame™ ShadeScape™ trellis kits are designed and engineered, built using state-of-the-art technology combined with old world craftsmanship by timberwright artisans with the mortise and tenon dovetail joinery that interlocks without the use of nails or glue. There are timber frame architectural structures that have used the mortise and tenon dovetails and are still in use, centuries later, as testimonies of beauty, strength and durability.
While arbors serve as entryways, gateways and pathway coverings, trellises are a natural element for walls; boundaries, enclosures and privacy screens. Although a trellis does not provide full overhead shade it does provide partial shade for a few hours of the day. From a very small or narrow area to a large expansive surrounding, trellises help create the perfect landscape.
