bb505 Making Bentwood Trellises, Arbors, Gate, Fences – By Jim Long
Nothing combines natural beauty and functionality more gracefully than a rustic bentwood trellis, arbor, gate or fence for your garden. Simple step-by-step instructions show you how to:
- Collect limbs from a wide variety of native trees as a part of the routine pruning
- Use those limbs to make beautiful, sturdy bentwood projects.
Featured are dozens of charming design ideas to suit any landscape, plus simple installation techniques.
Additionally, there are designs that don’t require bentwood, including a Craftsman-style arbor made of driftwood.
A list of vining type plants to grow on your trellis or arbor is included.
