My last project before taking my summer break from garden-making, included this arbor built from cedar trunks and branches.
The clients asked for something that looked like elves made it. I also drew on my memories of beaver lodges, with branches twisted through each other and loose ends sticking out.
The arbor also serves to define a transition from the public space to the private space of their front yard garden. A transition from the everyday space of the neighborhood into the magical space of the garden.
