Over the weekend we turned our overgrown grape arbor into a very cool garden tunnel.
The apricot bushes and apple trees that we have planted on either side of the arbor had completely taken over the path, and you couldn’t walk through without moving limbs out of your way. I’d been debating how to remedy the situation without cutting anything back, and it finally hit me a garden tunnel!
Not wanting to fork over the money for two more arbors, my husband and I bought a roll of welded wire cattle fencing, and we used that to extend our existing arbor.
These carport posts that we rescued from a curb pile a few weeks back worked perfectly as support posts.
Now our apricots and apples can grow as big as they want to …
and I have a bigger area to train our grape vines.
