We've been working on the bones of our new landscape. In our back yard where a gap in an old hedge aimed our eye exactly the wrong way, we know it will be many years before our new plantings will screen the view. In the meantime we're redirecting attention. That's meant building seven arbors from branches removed while pruning trees.
We're often asked how we make the rustic wood arbors we show you here. In answer, we made a short how-to video. Take a look, it's a simple project with a durable, attractive result.
In a 6-minute video. Constructing Rustic Wood Arbors, we show you how we make one of these arbors from long, limber tree limbs gleaned from tree-pruners' scrap piles, a pair of 10' black iron pipes, a fistful of cable ties and some copper wire.
