Curb Find: Arbor

This summer we rescued a HUGE arbor from a curb pile. It was in great shape, but missing its posts. We hauled it up to our cabin, planning to use it at one of our trail heads, and it’s been sitting there ever since. This week, we finally picked up some new posts from Lowe’s, and put it together. It looks like it was custom built for that spot, don’t you think?

Now, I just need to figure out what to grow on it. Since it’s made of pressure treated wood, edibles are out. Have any flowers to suggest? It’ll need to be something deer resistant, otherwise it’ll just turn into a big wildlife buffet.

  1. Hello Erin, It really does look like it was built to be there. Can I tell you I visit your page weekly I really look forward to the updates on the cabin!! Great work so far 🙂

    • Thanks, Yensi. I love to hear that 🙂 Stay tuned for more cabin updates. I should have a few more exciting things to report this week 🙂

    • Yep, I’d been thinking about wisteria, too. I have it in my head that it’s deer-resistant, but I’d have to double check that.
