Pole Bean trellis
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…
Using a Trellis System - Your trellis system will need some kind of support: 4x4-inch posts or Studded T Posts driven into the ground are typical solutions. Lace heavy twine or wire and pattern string from top to bottom to support the crop.
You could use bed springs and paint them to get this effect too!
