DIY Garden ~ A Simple Branch Arbor

New Feature

Now you can ask questions on every Hometalk post to get more insight and information about your favorite projects!
When you are pruning tree branches or taking down a tree, don’t haul all those branches to be cut up for the fire pit or fireplace – reuse them in your garden! Last summer, several large branches needed to be trimmed and I used them to make a simple arbor over our back gate. Now, I know this arbor won’t last forever, but it will last long enough or me to decide just what I want there permanently. One note is to use green limbs as they will bend more easily. Pre-drill guide holes and attach to your fence with wood screws. Fast, easy and inexpensive – my idea of the perfect garden project!

    @Mrs. Rosen, can you tell me where I can find these seeds. I had some a few years back but, somehow I misplaced them. I love them.

    Beautiful idea. Won't work for me, but I love the way it creates such a beautiful area.
