One of my favorite garden bloggers — Erin, the Impatient Gardener — just wrote about a private garden that she toured recently. What I was most taken with in that garden were the conifers. When we stopped at the Cleveland Botanical Garden at the beginning of the summer, strolling through their conifers was one of the highlights of our visit.
The variety of colors, textures, sizes and shapes was noteworthy.
Since I love both sharply pruned evergreens and weepers, I loved this walkway with its weeping evergreen arch.
We have a weeping white pine that I keep telling Mark could be turned into an arch we could walk under. So we paid particular attention to how this was done in Cleveland.
Rebar is what holds it together and gives it a stable structure.
This arch uses two specimens, one on each side of the arch. But in a small home garden, I think you might be able to get away with just one substantial weeper to create a similar effect.
