You know when you have an idea in your mind that you’re totally going to do, but you don’t know how or where or ANY OF THE DETAILS? Alls I know is that I want some structure built for the purpose of some plant to shower me with flowers on the daily. Picture me in a Bollywood movie.
The seed has been planted. Bad pun intended.
Wondering what I’m actually talking about?
Well, this here below is a trellis… Trellises are often filled with lattice. Trellis is the structure, usually wall-like not enclosed, and lattice is the wood grid stuff you can buy at Lowes to pretty it up.
An arbor (or arbour) is a structure that creates a shaded walkway or sitting area with crossbeams. It is sometimes attached to a house or other structure, but the key is that it’s not completely enclosed, like with a roof, which is perfectly suited for lots of green goodness to grow all over it.
Here are a bunch of inspiration photos for what’s swirling around in my head… Maybe you can test yourself on your garden structure knowledge?
And this last one… it’s a teepee y’all. Duh. It’s it all kinds of magical? I think it’s where unicorns sleep.
Do you have any big plans for your garden? I have all kinds of ideas… in my head, I’m just like, more green, More Green, MORE GREEN! Now I need to get focused because I have maybe a month or two to get it done this year. I don’t want my new leafy babies to freeze in the California winter.
