It is over 2 years since we commenced building the walkway/pergola entrance to our property at the eastern end of the house.
This is a photo I posted in a blog post in mid-March 2018.
The 6 sticks marked out the proposed location of the posts. You can also see the newly-planted shrubs to the right of the pergola site.
By July 2018 the majority of the structure was completed as per this blog post.
In September 2018 GMan laid the repurposed pavers that we had salvaged from when the entrance stairway was demolished and rebuilt.
The mandevilla creepers have been planted close to the pergola and the garden beds on either side have been mulched.
But, there is still no roof covering on the pergola. We would still considering our options.
These things take time but a couple of months ago we finally agreed that we would cover the top with wire and we would also need a couple of horizontal rails to support the wire.
We sourced, painted and installed the timber rails a couple of weeks ago and today we added the wire panels, or as otherwise described, put the lid on.
The finished entrance to the eastern end of our house and the vegetable garden area.
The shrubs and mandevilla creepers are well-established and we now have a well-defined entrance.
