Publisher Comments:

Nothing combines natural beauty and functionality more gracefully than a rustic bentwood trellis, arbor, gate, or fence for your garden. With the simple step-by-step instructions in Making Bentwood Trellises, Arbors, Gates & Fences, you'll learn how to collect limbs from a wide variety of native trees as a part of routine pruning and then use those limbs to make beautiful, sturdy bentwood projects.

Featured are dozens of charming design ideas to suit any landscape, plus simple installation techniques. There are even designs that don't require bentwood, including a Craftsman-style arbor made of driftwood. A list of vining plants to grow on your trellis or arbor is also included.
