What materials did you use? scrap lumber, didn't purchase a thing, except some stain.

What are you most proud of? Im most proud of the design, from my husband and I's imagination. The pond is the newest addition, and is a work in process...I especially like the floor in the pergola, doesn't matter if it's rained or not!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure your design is SQUARE, SQUARE! Be ready for problems, and be prepared to work! Its worth it! Oh and most important, don't bother with the pond, if you have ducks! they ate my plants, my fish, and I have to redo the pond at least once a week from scratch...ugh!

Love it! We have no trees or shade in our Lubbock Tx backyard, looking for an idea for shade, like the scrap lumber idea a lot, money is tight for us all, but that outdoor place would bring so much joy!!!

Love this! So peaceful looking. I have a picnic table I won that needs a stable place. I like your floor and the rest is an extra bonus.
