Making Arbors & Trellises
25 Practical & Decorative Projects for your GardenBook - 2002
Whether for a tiny city garden or for a rolling estate with outdoor "rooms," vertical landscaping is one of today's most popular trends. Just imagine walking up stone steps that are bordered by lush greenery and topped by a pretty, decorative white arbor "canopy." If you have even the simplest equipment and love gardening, you can easily make every one of these beautifully photographed arbors and trellises--all overseen by an award-winning designer. Cultivate the art of good conversation in a sheltered arbor with stay-a-while sides and face-to-face benches for an intimate chat. Lightning strikes in a bamboo trellis that zigzags like a bolt from heaven. Have a casual garden? Then set up a rustic trellis, constructed from vines and twigs, with vegetables or flowers or both. A basics section explains the details of elementary tasks, and many wonderful photos feature the flowers, foliage, and shrubbery that flourish in these special structures.
