Landscaping is very affordable if you are willing to wait. I bought this wisteria plant for $24.99 at Home Depot two years ago. It was 1 ft tall. The pergola is 28 feet long, 10 feet tall and 14 feet wide. It is hot in the summer but I knew that if I waited long enough, the wisteria would provide the beautiful shade we needed.
However, during the growing season, the new growth on the wisteria likes to get all twisted and growing in the wrong direction.
So three times this year, I will have to ask ( read bribe) one of my lovely children to climb up on the pergola and set this wisteria straight.
She is so brave. I am holding the ladder, you just cannot see it.
My daughter also pruned some of the new growth where it does not need to grow.
Hey look here!!!!
Smile, you are doing a great job.
Now I just need it to grow another 3 feet and we will have the entire first table covered.
