    How do you stabilize the trunks to form a rigid structure. I live in the far west with a lot of wind

    Do you have rough dimensions of the gazebo? Height and post to post distance?

    Amazing work! I have a bit of a wild yard myself that I need to do something with, so have questions.

    Did you do anything to preserve the wood to prevent insect and rot destroying it? Also, did you use nails, screws, brackets, to secure the wood so it was structurally sound? Any other building hacks would be appreciated!

    So sorry for a tornado!

    But happy my garden has given you some inspiration!! Our journey has truly been a labor of love, progress has been slow, but we love the outcome.

    Enjoy the transformation!

    I will definitely try this project! My kind of place, natural & wild, snuggled into a forest setting.😀
