Attaching items to Dryvit or Stucco

I am not sure if I have Dryvit or stucco or some comparable product. My question is, how can I attach things to it?

I know it isn't that strong on itself and need to hit the studs. How would I do that in terms of making sure I don't get water inside?

I am thinking I am going to have a frame that will rest on the ground, so the attachment is really only to keep it from falling over. I am thinking of a trellis or something like that.

I'd drill it, put a little caulking in the hole and then install the screw.

And if it's a wood-framed trellis, resting on the ground, you can expect to see it start rotting from the bottom up in a few years. Much better to elevate it off the ground a few inches (or more) if you want it to last.
