Step 9: Final Note

This kind of project is much easier when you have another person to help, I rarely do. I spend a lot of time just figuring out how to create a second pair of hands to help me do what I want to do. I am kind of Physical challenge because I am a 53 year old 4’11” woman, but I love to make my own stuff for the garden and yard. I am sure other more experienced people could improve on this project.

Cool. I just dug the post holes for my arbor last night. Our designs are quite similar. Good going!
Thanks. the Grape vines are peeking out of the grow tubes.
I'd thought about a project like this for my parent's cottage with the vines going along the top of the arbor to provide more shade in the summer. One reason that I haven't done it is a concern about bees. If you have done this before; have you noticed any bee problem?
This is my first time at grape vines and arbor. I have read that bees are attracted to the grapes as well as birds. However from the time I put up the frame to the time I finished with the wire and stain (about 4 to 6 weeks) there were 2 holes drill on the underside of the 1x6 boards by bees. big fat ones that look like bumble bee but I think they are called carpenter bees. I plugged the holes and will have to keep an eye out for any more of that kind of "construction".
