Water drainage on treated framed trellis?

Installed a pine privacy trellis on boundary wall. Will try attach some pictures.

Trellis and posts were pressure treated, treated with fungicide, treated with Ronseal preserver and finished with Textrol oil.

My issue is I am now concerned that water will pool in the bottom of the trellis frame, which will eventually cause it to rot. Should I drill some holes in the frame so the water can escape?

Appreciate any opinions or recommendations on this.

Yes it will fill with water.

Yes ...put some large holes in the bottom and try and get some preserver on the walls of the holes.

As with Roger on this one. If you apply some clear wood preservative to the bottom each year they will probably last a lifetime.
