Garden Structures - Functional and Beautiful

Well, I convinced my husband that a trellis was necessary, and was so pleased with what he built me. Not only do trellises, obelisks and other garden structures look good, but they give much needed support for climbers, but actually, they provide extra room for plants in the garden by offering that vertical space!
Form and Function. I like that a lot!

Happy Gardening!

This really is a good looking obelisk. He did a great job. We've got squash that are happily climbing up a trellis in our garden.

I love the obelisk that your husband made and it's great for growing those tasty beans up.

I love the3 obelisk! Did your husband design it himself? I believe he could market those.

Thanks so much, ladies!
~ Helen, I'm looking forward to seeing your squash. Will have to wander over to Summerhouse!
~ C.G., Thank you! I've passed on all the compliments to my husband. He's beaming! (I can't take credit, except for conning him into making it, lol)
~ Ginny, I found a picture in an book I have about American heirloom gardens, and my husband took it from there. Thanks so much!
Actually thinking of marketing them more. We've sold a couple as kits to some friends, but hmm.. I'm sensing a business now!
