The arbor is done and it turned out beautiful!

My husband Tim has been working on this arbor for about a year and it is finally completed.It stands 10' high and 4' wide.He began three years ago removing an old above ground pool from the previous owners of our house and turning the empty area into a Japanese garden.The old pool had a wood deck surrounding the perimeter.He cut a section out of the deck and that became the area for the arbor.The actual garden is almost complete with bamboo fencing as it's backdrop.It's approximately 28' in diameter.
The metal sculpture displayed in the middle of the arbor was hand crafted by our friend Jeff Howard.Jeff is a metal sculptor artist and made this for us as a gift.
