Bush beans do not need any support, whether they are string or lima beans, because they grow as a bush, not a vine. Only lima or string beans that are the "pole" variety need to be supported by some sort of trellis system.
For more information about string beans and lima beans, click on Grow It Eat It and look in the Growing Vegetables profiles.
