Leafy screen, steel tubing.

Square steel tubing forms the skeleton of this handsome trellis, which shields a small back deck. The material was selected for its strength, longevity, and compatibility with existing railing.

Each of the structure's four posts consists of four 2-inch-square tubes spaced 6 inches apart. These support a welded grid of 1-inch-square hollow tubing. The freestanding trellis turns a corner, then stops near the house's stone chimney.

For privacy, a cedar hedge grows between the posts; wisteria spreads out to cover the grid above. Design was by Seattle landscape architect John M. Bernhard.
