We tried arches but makes them hard to pick. So just stand up the panels with 3 fence posts. For the tomatoes we use 2 panels about 8 inches apart. I have a panel set up every 6 ft Just use the small tillers along it to plant. Raid garbage cans at carpet shops for jute backed carpet to put between each one to keep the weeds down. Each trellis has drip irrigation.
this yr I am even getting lazier. I cut some carpet in 3 ft wide strips then built a branding iron type thing to heat up and burn a 6 inch round hole every 18 inches to plant in. So even less weeding.

The carpet is also easier on the knees when getting low to pick stuff. Keeps you out of the mud too.
