Instructions for Garden Pergola/Arbor for Under $20
Step by step for building this free standing pergola/arbor. You can use longer 2x4s if you want to cement in ground if you are in a windy area. It is heavy enough to stand on its own but if you have children or rambunctious pets you may want to anchor it or cement it in. Have fun and this is an amazing project to do My Pergola is still up 2 years later and has aged beautifully Be sure to visit my other projects on Hometalk and on my blog @ www.thegardenfrogboutique.com
