I just saw this thread and wanted to say I did mine trellis screening myself, and for a girl it was quite easy. We didn't need our posts cementing in as the site is sheltered and the screening is for privacy from a new housing estate at the back of our garden.
I bought my trellis from a local timber merchant and for 6x6 it cost me £15.00 per panel plus £10.00 for delivery. The posts we got from Wickes at £12.00 each and I bought post spikes at £5.00 each, oh and the thingy you put the spikes in with at £5.00.
An afternoon, a lump hammer and a power screwdriver and all done and the money I saved meant I could buy some lovely bluebell paint to paint then new screening.
Just a thought but it is cheaper and more fun to stand back and look at your own work if you can.
