My front yard is slowly becoming a menagerie of paths. That is my goal but as I walk around the yard I often find that I am cutting across the row of flowers shown in this project. Thus, the need for a walkway.

I had, in the past, tried several strategies but the chickens dug up everything that I tried. So it was time to go formal and install an arbor with a flowering vine going over top. (Rick vetoed that—might as well plant an edible hahaha he’s getting it!!!) And so I bought a grape vine that should be heading its way over top by next year.

Photo 1
- includes the first post and the grapevine and the other surrounding plants.

Photo 2
- the arbor. It isn’t perfect but we run out of steam and so this “good enough” is how it will stay.

More to follow…
when the vine covers the arbor, hopefully, I will remember to update this with the final photo.

I would love a grape arbor. What kind did you plant & how long does it take for them to climb that high? Are the photos the same spot but different angles and time of year?

Our grapes… we already had 2 concords and 2 niagara. We planted 2 sovereigns and 2 vanessas in the tipi area and this one is another concord.
I think it should send out shoots this year that should make it to the top and next year will be flowing over the top.

The photos are from the south (the before) and the north (the after).

Update
I got a thumbs up from the lawnmower driver re: the drive-through from one path to the other. Apparently it is helpful.

Oh how this has changed—the plants are so much larger
