Door Arbor Complete! - Garden Junk Forum Thanks so much, GJers, for all your feedback on this project. I am still "giddy" over it & am enjoying plotting & planning the area! I did post some more pics today.. "Added Plant & Purplemoon's Butterfly to Door Arbor." I'll try to reply to your comments & questions: Yes, DH & I like "teamwork"...I could not do most projects by we appreciate the time together...and, yeah, I gave him your "pats on the back!" No, my ground is not level...that's why more pcs of concrete on one side than the other. ummmm, maybe shutter doors would work, twomonths! Yes, thought of a bed bench...good idea, but think I want something smaller...I want to keep this arbor with an "open view" like looking thru the "frame" of the windows...and full view from front & back. You can "hang out" in my arbor, anytime, Purplemoon! WELCOME, threekittens, and thanks for posting!

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. There are many options as to design. A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed. The regeneration zone can be along the perimeter of a natural pool or a pond unto itself but connected to the swimming area. For a true natural pool with no help from ultraviolet light or other such technology, the requirement is half swimming area, half regeneration area. Plants steel the nutrients away from algae.

Don't you just love when teenagers get creative ... with markers. After all they are just trying to express themselves. I used this frightening dresser for lumber supplies for this project. I also stripped down this little maple side table to use. I built the upper portion from the frightening dresser and fastened it to the table. The color you see above is a grey primer coat and below is the a creamy white. The sides of the dresser were used for the sides of the shelf. 4 inches were cut off the length and 2 inches off the depth. The crown detail at the top is a decorative wall shelf on clearance at HomeSense. For the back of the shelving unit I used the drawer bottoms. An old mirror frame provided the vertical trim up the front edges. I used short pieces of chair rail bought new from a local home improvement store. The shelves themselves are built with the drawer backs.
