My folks wanted something to welcome family and friends to their backyard and pool as well as fit in with their flower gardens. I designed and built this 4 foot by 4 foot by 8 foot arbor with the help of my dad over a long weekend. Mom hopes her climbing roses will enjoy the lattice sides. We plan to stain the arbor a nice accent color later this summer after the wood dries out. It turned out to be a great belated Mother's Day gift as well as a great father and son time together.
