Arbours (or Bowers) can be used as outdoor seating areas for either dining (with either garden furniture or picnic blankets) or as a secluded hidey-hole for reading and relaxing.
The kits are very easy to make. The willow rods are inserted into the ground and tied together and will set down roots and will begin to grow. The new growth can be woven in around the existing structure creating a dense screen of foliage.
These structures make great group projects, either for your family, your school or your community centre. Excellent project for promoting working in a group, mathematical and artistic skills, not to mention a sense of achievement and something to show for it afterwards.
Each Kit contains: Willow Rods of the correct lengths Full step-by-step instructions 1 x Roll of Flexi-Tie (rubber string) Optional - Extras Kit: For Weed control and easy maintenance plant with Black Mulching Fabric & Plastic Barbed Pegs
The kit size gives an Arbour measuring aprox.: Height 1.8m - 2m x Diameter 2.5m x Depth 1.25m
These structures will need annual Spring/Autumn maintenance for them to keep their structure. They will need cutting back to their original height to allow the frame to bush out and become denser and for it to keep its shape. After 2-3 years you will be able to use a hedge trimmer or shears to give the structure a quick trim.
Delivery Cost: £12.95 fixed rate for all Willow Structures, any quantity. (UK Mainland only)
Arrived as promised, easy to follow instructions I ordered well in advance, and got 10% off. The kit arrived as promised, and I left it in water a few days before following the easy to understand instructions and puting it together. I looks great, if a little bare (it's only been in the ground a few weeks). Can't wait for it to start growing soon!\n (10/01/2017) Anita MItchell - Norfolk
Very pleased We ordered our willows just in time this season and planted them at Easter. They are growing already and look fab. Can't wait to see what they look like in a few months. \n (12/04/2016) Louise - South Bucks
Makes a lovely, original feature in our garden The whips arrived promptly, well packaged and with clear instructions. It took 2 of us about 2 hours to build. Already there are pussy willows and signs of green growth. Our daughter and her fiance were so taken with it that they ordered one for their garden.\n (30/03/2016) Sheelagh - Angus, Scotland
