DIY Garden ~ A Simple Branch Arbor

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!

    Love it! I have been recycling branches and limbs forever. Right now, we built a frame of branches for our garage door. I planted wisteria and clematis (confederate jasmine as well) and we're training the wisteria et al to climb the branches and create
