DIY Garden ~ A Simple Branch Arbor

12,299 Views
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!

    Such a good idea, Barb, and I don't see how your arbor could look better if those vines were growing on some fancy schmancy bespoke number.

      @Douglas Hunt ~ I agree! And, this was free and an easy two-person job, my favorite kind of project: )

    Thanks, @Luis ! It was really pretty with the vines growing on it. Maybe next summer I'll decide on something more permanent : )

    I keep a branch collection too. So many uses for them. Plus it seems pretty silly to get rid of them and then go buy the equivalent at the store!
