This past winter, I started work on several projects for the garden. Now that the weather has improved, installation has started. The garden door was created from left over cedar wood from my son's house remodel. The door gives the illusion of "Entry". The framing for the garden door was made from landscape timbers placed in cement. This door is hinged and can be opened and closed. The basket on the door will be lined in moss and have flowering plants added as the weather improves in my zone 5 garden.
This arbor project is simply three eight foot landscape beams. Two beams are cemented into the ground with the third beam bolted across the top. I added plant hooks for the two hanging flower baskets. The arbor is painted in a light green color to accent the plants. I made two matching arbors for both ends of the woodland garden. Each arbor was under ten dollars to make, but they make a big statement in the garden.
