Planning a Path or Pergola

Before you start your project make sure you measure your yard carefully. Paths should be at least 4 ft across, enough space for mature plants to spill over the edges. Don't fret if you're not a master carpenter. Many simple projects can be tackled by gardeners without a ton of building skill in just a day or two. Pergola kits are widely available and simple to assemble. You can buy pressure-treated wood that's been pre-cut for raised beds or decking.
