My Rustic Arbor
Just wanted to share my rustic arbor. This is my second time in sharing one of my projects in Garden Junk! I've really enjoyed reading and seeing people's great ideas! I guess this is considered Garden Junk because it is made from recycled materials. When builders cleared the property down the road for a new house, they had a HUGE pile of debris which they were going to burn. Many river birch trees were in the pile...so I asked if I could clear the pile for them in exchange for the trees and branches. They were glad to be rid of the debris, and I was glad to have recycled material to build this arbor and adjoining fence! I cemented the posts in the ground and haven't had a rotting issue. I joined the pieces with whatever leftover screws and nails I had from past projects. The fence gate is hung with metal strips of pipe hangers. The vine grew in one year...silver lace...it's a prolific grower! The arbor leads into the woods. I hope you enjoy the picture.
