How to make a gazebo not like everyone else's and, preferably, cheaply. Nice and free, is that possible? Yes - and the material for such an original beautiful gazebo at your fingertips is willow.
You just need to know the basics of creating such a gazebo and just start sticking a vine into the ground. When the willow tree rises, it will be easy to figure out how to organize it into a tent.
Let's start with the landing. The willow is such a tree that even if you just throw it on the ground or plant it upside down, it will still sprout. Just the presence of moisture is enough.
Because Since this plant is quite aggressive, it is better to limit the planting of willow under the gazebo in the ground with plastic or a special film to combat weeds, so that later you do not have to deal with the overgrown willow roots in the garden or near the cesspools.
Don't let the willow get too high. Timely cut the frame of the gazebo to the desired height.
This is especially required by the shoots at the very top. Therefore, calculate the height of the gazebo so that you can reach its highest point when trimming.
Form the raised shoots in time - what is a thin twig today, next year it is already difficult to bend, and in a year the stiff wood will grow where it wants to.
Therefore, frame seedlings must be folded into a dome BEFORE they reach the desired length (do not be afraid to use a regular twine for this). When they grow to the correct height, they can be so stiff that you won't bend them.
You can create a living gazebo in several stages. In the first year, plant seedlings for the frame. In subsequent years, plant new young seedlings between them. In fact, you will not make a living arbor, you will "weave" it.
The thickness of the seedling for planting a living gazebo is about 1.5 cm. Just cut the required number of twigs with the pruning shears and put them in a bucket of water until they sprout.
When planting, the petioles should be buried in the soil to a depth of 30 cm. You can use an iron rod for this - make a deep hole and deepen the seedling in it. Take your time and do not fuss - you will need 2-3 years to form a full-fledged gazebo.
If the result does not suit you. You can just cut everything and start over.
Use your imagination to create your own beautiful live gazebo. Remember that even when the gazebo is ready, you need to water it, trim and plant new seedlings.
You now know how to make a gazebo out of almost nothing! We hope that working on this unique project will make you happy.
