How to make a Trellis & Raised Garden Box Combo

They’re the stuff of dreams, man. Well, gardener dreams at least. A few days ago I woke up with a plan. And like normal, I gathered the family into the living room and presented my case for that day’s spontaneous project, complete with sketches. They weren’t impressed. But as soon as we got to work, they realized this was a really EASY and FUN project and it would solve a lot of problems for us in our garden space. See? The biggest culprit in our garden is the abundance of bermuda grass that infiltrates the north side each summer. It’s a great, cheap resource for us here in the desert. I always hesitated putting a large raised garden box in this area because I just knew the influx of bermuda would take over each year and cause mayhem. I needed a growing area that would stay primarily off the ground. And this trellis & raised garden box combo is just the solution for us! We also plan on packing a good foot of leaves and wood chips around the arch to keep the bermuda at bay.

He worked together with elements of his natural surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment. Show Full Text Byles’ project is intentionally secretive – the only way you’ll see these work short of his photos is by going into the woods and finding them yourself. I imagine that coming upon such a fantastic structure unexpectedly in the woods is sure to be quite a magical surprise. One of the most beautiful things about his work is its temporary nature.

Weave in or cut back?

The main decision is whether to cut off all of the new growth or weave it in. Cutting it all off will retain the geometric shape – as you might want to do with a willow hedge, or fedge – to give a thicker weave that eventually grafts together to give a weave of thick mature willow trees. Alternatively weaving in all of the new growth creates more enclosed spaces and a more organic look. These structures will look like a hedge from the outside but will hide a secret world of tunnels and domes.

Any rods that are too large to weave can just be cut off at the base and used to replace dead rods or build new structures. Pruning can be started once the leaves have fallen – usually the beginning of December – and should be finished before the buds start coming out in March. Dead Rods – If any rods have died put a new rod in alongside the dead one. Ties – Once the willow gets established the ties may start cutting into the new growth if they haven’t rotted off yet.
