Picking raspberries and growing raspberries is so much more enjoyable when you have a raspberry trellis installed in your berry patch. The berries are easier to reach and mulching the beds in the fall is a breeze. Building a traditional raspberry trellis is a great project for the beginning gardener and can be completed for less than $50!
