When we moved in to our house a little over 2 years ago the garden was neglected and somehat overgrown. My sole contribution to improving the garden was to clear a section at the end for my workshop, and dig a trench for an armoured cable to get power to the workshop (you can see where my priorities lay)
We've now had the garden landscaped and I've built a pergola ove the path to the workshop door. All the joints are mortice and tennon with a turned peg - no metal fixings in this project!
There will be another, smaller, pergola in front of the workshop. Now Mrs B would like a Lutyens style bench.
One day I'll get back to making musical instruments - which is what I built the workshop for in the first place!

It's a real pleasure to see a project carried out accurately, correctly and skillfully,
a credit to you, one that will last and last, something to be proud of.

The original photos were taken in February when I completed the first pergola. Since then I have built a second one and aded custom-made trellis panels.
Here are a few more pictures of the pergolas taken in June after things started growing.....
