Green bean trellis made easy   2 inch PVC pipe hammered in the ground for support. (about 20 inches each) 9-10 inches above ground.   2x2x8 boards cut at 4 ft for ends and one 8 ft piece for top.   String one piece of twine across base of  pipe. Then individually tie twine on cross beam down to bottom string.   Green beans will grow up twine naturally.   At end of season twine can be recycled for next year or put in compost.   PVC is sturdy enough to get plenty of years of use.   DON'T USE…

Build Support for Beans |Support is vital for these climbing plants. Build a wigwam from eight canes, ideally at least 7 ft (2.2 m) long, pushed firmly into the soil about 12 in (30 cm) apart, in a circle. Tie the canes securely at the top and again halfway down.
