Giving a vine a place to grow

Here is a simple little project I finished last week. A neighbor needed something to span a gate opening that would allow a clematis vine to continue its climb. This arbor-like structure spans about 4.5 feet and is attached to the top of each post. In the summer, the plant will likely cover the metal grid, but in the winter the design of the piece should show through.

The garden behind the gate is pretty cool. Lots of wonderful shade plants around some water features.
