This is my latest garden project.

 I built this using two 4 by 4's, and a 2 by 10. I used carriage bolts to fasten the frame together. The gate opens and leads through the plants. I also built a dock that is installed in a little river, at the end of the tunnel.


You can walk through the tunnel.

Continue along until you come to a clearing.
This is a little dock I built using pressure treated lumber.
