Make sure to leave enough room for the oil man/plumber so he can get working at the tank. If you are driving down posts watch that you don't hit the oil-line if it goes underground.

shefra, consider getting a local woodworker to create a double thickness trellis for you. I have seen so many of the garden centre and woodies bought ones fall apart after the weight of a two year old climbing plant is applied to them. Plus you will have an oil deliveryman having to work across the trellis, so make it a strong trellis to start.
