Modified Pergola Built With Recycled Windows

Garden Art 05.07.15
It took me about one hour to decide what I would do with these windows after I picked them up off the side of the road. I built this modified pergola and I think it makes my back garden beautiful! See more @ #OutdoorProjects #Gardens

    Well this design is a little busy. But beautiful flowers won't think it is too busy. You have the right idea, I wish I had a little creativity somewhere in my body.

    Just looks like a bunch of windows nailed up any which way. Fail.

    That is amazing. I wish I had half the space you have. Our lot has 10 feet on one side and 2 feet on the other with our house in the middle. Not enough to do anything with, so we have three 4 x 8 foot raised beds for our garden. You did a great job.

    be glad you didn't do wisteria. it marches everywhere. even comes upin the driveway or sidewalk. climbing hydrangea is a much better choilce.

    You're certainly right about that Roseann - I'm anxious to see how the clematis and climbing rose do this summer!

    love this idea! wonder if the same could be done on a smaller scale with old picture frames. you'd need to paint with outdoor paint...

    Thanks Mary. In regards to your question about using picture frames - I'm not sure that they would be stable enough. Even the windows weren't tremendously stable after I took out the glass. It really surprised me.
