- Dig 2-foot holes with your post hole digger for each post, placing the holes in a straight line. The number of posts depends on the size of your garden and how many grape vines you'll grow. Space each post 8 to 10 feet apart, measuring the distance with a measuring tape.
- Place each post upright in its hole. Fill each hole back in with dirt and make sure the post stands straight. Each post will now be standing 8 feet high.
- Measure at 2 feet and 5 feet high on each post, using your measuring tape. Use your pencil to make a mark at both heights.
- Drill holes through the posts at both of the marked heights. The holes should be drilled to face the other posts so you can run wire through them.
- Run stainless-steel wire through the holes in the posts. Wrap the wire around both ending posts and tighten. Cut the wire with wire cutters.
Things You Will Need
- Post hole digger
- 10-foot pre-treated wood posts (3-inch diameter)
- Measuring tape
- Cordless drill
- 10- to 12-gauge stainless steel wire
- Wire cutters
- Pre-treated wooden posts are preferable to metal ones. Metal posts cause wires to rust long before wooden ones.
- Stainless-steel wire is best to use because it resists rusting and will last longer than regular wire.
