I love that! So pretty. Down here in the desert we do living fences with Ocotillo. Good luck!

That is incredible!!

When I can finally buy a house all of my own, I can see the pathway in now!

Not only is that beautiful but willow can be used as an asprin. Thats a little random but its a very cool fact. :p

Ok...I am stealing your idea. I might try a few, one in my "backyard" and one down by the creek in my "wood." I have an area down by the creek that it would look great in! we have thought about trying to do something down there to make it a little more like our yard instead of just some woods with an over grown path. Perhaps I can put it in the middle of the trail to block the ATV riders who trespass down there. Show them it is someone's property. I need to do something down there...

Thank you. Living in New Mexico I havent found anyone who could tell me the name of this plant :confused: Now I know what to look for when I built my fence.

I just love stuff like this. This is a far more permanent type than what we've done in the past. One of our favorites is to plant sunflowers alternating with morning glories. Train the morning glories up your sunflowers and then weave at the top for something that last for the season. This is soo much cooler, though!

I just got a great deal on grape vines. Can a structure like this be built for a grape arbor? I would like to see a video on how to make this.
