Grapevine pergola

When DH asked me what I wanted for my birthday in February all I could think of was a pergola for growing grapes. So here it is. He bought 2 cedar trellises for the ends, then constructed the rest of it. Here he is sitting under his project. We planted a grape vine at each end. Love it!

Very, very nice. That'll look great with the grapevine. He should definitely be proud of his work there.

That will be beautiful covered with vines & grapes hanging down! I think he is enjoying it already! Nice work DH! You will be able to enjoy the"fruits of your labors" later on towards fall, well, maybe not until next year, those vines will have to grow fast to give you grapes this year. Purple grapes, Concord, I think really grow fast so if that is what you planted you might just be making grape jelly or juicing them! Jan

What a lovely birthday gift! I really like that shade of green on your pretty table and chairs too. He looks like a man deserving of a good rest. Tell him he did a wonderful job on your pergola! And be sure to post pictures as the grapevines grow.
