Three palm trees that had been, well, decapitated, then stripped of their calyxes, became the main pillars for the structure.
Old wire that was left over from old gardening trellises and even from the previous owner was wrapped around more palm trunks moved over for the framing.
More vining plants are planted inside.
An old gate left over from the original owners… who probably reused it from something else.
To do the roof, Juan made due with what he had.
Then stretched just a little more!
With a wall made of broken cement to define the walkway and planted areas, it is finished.
Inside a palm tree forms a bench.
All the times I mowed around these palm trees can be forgotten as they are now exotic support beams.
A little bit on the crazy, fairy-story side, this structure will only mature as the vines take over. What a great addition to the garden!
