Garden gate surrounded by lush planting at Charleston ~ The humble morning glory makes quite an impact here, and the palms tropicals that embrace the gate add to the sense of mystery - makes you want to know what's on the other side.
We've got abundant downed wood from our woods that can be repurposed into many wonderful things, such as fencing, garden posts, and something like this charming garden arbor. If you're using your arbor to grow and support grapevines, just be sure you bury your posts deep enough to bear the weight of the grown vines. Or just decorate it with lightweights like morning glories, clematis and nasturtium!
Add Windows to the fence. I love this idea! Our yard is currently fenced in with a tall and ugly fence (that is torn and broken in several places. Would love a new fence that is lower with a window at the gate that is welcoming. I don't want the backyard to feel closed in, but would love more privacy at the deck/patio area.
