DIY Garden ~ A Simple Branch Arbor

Gardening 01.10.15
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!

      Donna this was actually a glitch in Hometalk. It should be fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Barb, I love branch arbors! I made one about 10 few years ago and attached birdhouses to it. Loved it till it finally bit the dust.

      Jann Olson ~ yes, they won't last forever, but quite a long time for something that cost nothing but some time : )

    @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.
