Making Arbors & Trellises: 25 Practical & Decorative Projects For Your Garden

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.

We're always on the lookout for great ideas for our garden. We have high standards and live in an executive neighborhood, so we look for quality and distinctive projects. This book has great ideas with well drawn plans and instructions.We built a gothic trellise this weekend. There's not another like it in town. It looks great. Fresh from this success, I'm headed to Home Depot to pick up wood for two other projects--a formal entryway and a simple lattice design to cover an electric meter. Thanks for the great work putting this unique book together.

I checked this book from the library and it has great garden structure design ideas and project plans. But the real value is how informative the book is. This is intended for the weekend warrior who is not especially knowledgeable about woodworking or carpentry but has enough skill to follow clear directions. It also gets you well grounded in basic technique so that you will be able to create your own unique designs for simple garden structures. To make a long story short - I am buying the book.

Book has lots of nice pictures and great ideas for structures in the garden. Be sure to get this one for your collection.

It's good for me.
