Pallet Deck & Bamboo Arch

Over breakfast one morning, Chrissie pointed to the scrub area beside us and suggested we should deck it with pallets. Little seeds of ideas grow into big projects.. not that big in this case, but it did take a fair amount of jiggery pokery to rework the stones, find the levels and ensure the hosepipe remained sunken and intact throughout the process.

My lovely mum passed away during this little project so we decided to build a bamboo arch to train the honeysuckle and dedicate it to her. She was an enthusiastic gardener, amongst many other things, and I know she’d take great satisfaction from seeing us have so much fun with plants, pots and pallets.
