Step 1: Measure between your posts
In this example we already have posts in place. Measure between the posts to make sure the lattice will fit in between. Once that’s done, measure the lattice and then cut the lattice surround to fit. Transfer measuring marks onto the surround timber and cut two widths and two lengths.
Step 2: Cut pieces for your lattice frame
Cut a 45-degree mitre so it gives a nice join and you don’t see any end ground. Square one end and cut a mitre on it. Measure from there along the short edge and cut your next mitre. Do this for the tops and bottoms, giving you the pieces required for your frame.
Step 3: Attach the surround to the lattice and screw it together
Put the surround onto the lattice by placing the lattice into the groove on the surround. Pre-drill the corners and screw them together, repeating this all the way around.
