The Arbor Project: Sneak Peek 1

Over the next several days (until the voting begins on the Better Homes and Gardens 48 Hour Blog Challenge) I’ll be giving small previews of my Arbor project. It’s ready to go and I’m very pleased with the result.

Here’s a first look at one aspect of the arbor:

Solar Lights:

Solar lights are one of those garden details that not only add detail to a project but safety and convenience as well. The ambiance created by these lights will be perfect for evening summer walks around the gardens while the girls chase lightning bugs.

  1. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the completed project.

    I emailed my mom a link to your blog…she lives in Columbia and works in Spring Hill. I thought she might enjoy your gardening tips.

  2. Dave…It already looks delightful! gail

  3. I love sneak peeks! :-) This will be fun to follow.

  4. It’s looking good, I love the solar light.

  5. That is a nice looking solar light Dave. What a great addition to the Arbor Project! I’ll be tuning in for more sneak peaks. :)

  6. What a tease! That corner is looking mighty good and I can’t wait to see the whole thing.

  7. Dave,
    Looks like a good start on this. We built an arbor for a customer last year it was nice and self designed. Priced 6×6 cedar yesterday at $12+ a foot, I think we’ll use treated lumber when we build ours.

  8. You think everything through, your work is always on the grand scale, I know this will be beautiful as well!
