Why not share your pergola story and have it dispalyed on a page on this website?

Are you proud of your achievements and would like to tell other readers about what you have created?

It doesn't have to be just about pergolas. If you've built or created anything in your garden that you love, however large or small, you can be sure others will love to hear about it too!

This website is all about helping and inspiring keen gardeners to have a go at building wonderful garden features of their own.

Jim built this beautiful seating area from the free plans. Wow!

When I talk to people who have built their own garden features, it's so good to see how proud they feel...what an achievement it has been, and how it has changed their lives.

They love to tell me all about it, glitches they had and how they overcame them, funny things that happened, personal touches that they've added and the stories behind their accessories and momentos, construction techniques and their preferred way of building something, and most importantly, how the garden feature has had a really positive impact on their lives.

It may be something as simple as turning a small, rubble-filled piece of waste ground into a lovely flower bed, or it might be a bigger project like laying a patio or deck, to relax outdoors surrounded by pots filled with colourful plants, or maybe building a covered walkway pergola draped in beautiful climbers.

Your stories, hint, tips and recommendations, however large or small, can be an inspiration and help to other readers, giving them the confidence and belief that they can make a difference to their lives too!

Did you discover a really great book about small garden design or planting in shady places?

Would you like to recommend the fabulous pergola kit that you just built in your garden?

Do you have wonderful pictures of a favourite plant, or some plants that you have grown that go really well together?

Do you have great pictures of your pergola design that you would like to share?

Anything goes!

Your page will appear in one of the categories below, but don't worry if it doesn't quite fit, I'll make a new category in which to place your story or contribution.

This is Erica's amazing creation!
