AN ARBOUR MADE OF WELDED WIRE FABRIC (溶接金網で作るアーバー)




I found a stunning ivy-clad shed in an article of GARDEN ILLUSTRATED (August issue). 
Ivy grows on the metal trellis installed just outside of the timber wall of the shed.  
It inspired me to make an arbour using welded wire fabric (WWF)
WWF is cheap (3 pounds for 1×2 meter) , durable, and looks good 
because it rusts and become rustic.

ツタに覆われた素敵な小屋をみつけました
この写真に触発されて、新しい庭のベンチの上に
溶接金網を使ってアーバーを作ろうと思いつきました
溶接金網は安くて(1×2メートルで400円程度)、耐久性があり、
そして錆びてくるのでいい感じになります

Five WWF were wired together using fine wire and were staked to a couple of rebars 
which were driven into the ground. 
A brown sheet was temporally fixed to its roof for sheltering from sunshine and rain. 
I am planting young plants of ivy in a few days at the base of the arbour. 





5枚の溶接金網を細い針金で結び、2本の地中に刺した鉄筋に固定しました
日よけと雨よけのために屋根に茶色のシートを仮に取りつけました
アーバーの足元に数日中にツタの苗木を植え付ける予定です

    I was watching 'Garden Rescue' TV programme last night and they used this material to make a screen for plants to grow up by drilling holes into two posts, and slotting the wire mesh into the posts which became the uprights. I would really like to do this in my garden to grow jasmine and clematis on/up/through.
    Your arbour looks lovely...even without the ivy!
    Best wishes

      Thank you for your commennts.
      I've never known and never watched the 'Garden Rescue', however, I googled the programme and I could watch that episode on YouTube. It's a quite interesting programme, and I enjoyed it. We have a similar TV programme called 'Bofore After' in Japan.
      The wire mesh supported by two posts is a good idea, and it looks nice. Why don't you try it in your garden.
