Peace in the Shade

We transformed our lonely shed, abandoned at the edge of a gravel driveway into a food source and cozy retreat from the summer sun

Yellow trellis - Lovely concept. Were the trellises custom made? Are they metal or wood?

Thank you! It's my favorite place in the garden. The trellises are wood. I purchased them five or six years ago (not sure you can still get them) at Lowes and painted them myself. Happy gardening!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spatial planning comes easily to Robin, since she's a kitchen and bath designer. After she and her husband came up with the idea, she whipped up some plans right away. "By the end of that weekend, I had drafted the plans and ordered the hardware to assemble the raised beds," she says. "I was out there in my wellies on Monday morning beginning the process of removing all that ghastly gravel."
