Vertical or Horizontal Cucumbers???

I am trying to figure out weather I will plant my cucumbers on the ground, or try them vertically on a trellis. I think I will save space by growing them vertically. I had 4 cucumber plants vine on the ground last year and yielded at least 25 cucumbers per plant. I was thinking about something similar to the pic, but not as big. I think growing them on a structure like this would be awsome, but it is a bit big for my yard. I will keep you posted on what end up building if I go the vertical route. Let me know what you think or if you have ever grown cucumbers vertically.
