    The arbor is cedar. In Oregon, it rains a lot. Cedar is a great option because it does not decompose or break down when it is wet. Juniper is another wood that does extremely well in wet conditions. I'm not sure what you have available in South Africa, but I'm sure your local building supply company can assist you. Best wishes.

    What is the paint color on the shed? That's a beautiful color with the red door.

    Use about 6 inches of 3/4- gravel for the base and set the first stone below grade 1/4 to 1/2 the height of the stone depending on how many high you are going to stack. So for this type of wall, you want to dig 10" below your finished grade, 6" of base, and then the first stone. Yes, it is strong enough to sit on, jump on, or most anything else.

    The furniture is Teak. I know there are several places on line like Westminsterteak.com that you can purchase a similar set.

    Depending on how you want the inside built out and your location, you should budget about $3,000 USD. It is a custom built shed

    The shed is pretty small. The interior square footage is about 25 give or take.

    Thanks. Looking for closer to 8x8. But I still like the design.

    We use a 3/16" thick x 4" wide steel edging. It will rust over time, but it creates a very nice edge that lasts for many years.

    The stone is a variegated blue stone. It is very popular in our region.

    That is an interesting question. We have not designed a garden with a western/rodeo theme, but I'm sure we could put something together for you if I better understood the scope of the project. Let me know. Thanks.

    The wall is a basalt curbstone. It is a great cut stone for walls and steps. Thanks for asking.

    Those are cedar chips. They not only have a great look and last a long time, but they smell great.

9. Clean out the shed or garage. No one said it’s easy, but making room in your storage shed or garage will feel great once you’re done. Work on the space a little at a time, setting aside items you want to sell or give away. Once you have freed up some space, consider if there is a way to make the space even more useful — perhaps some wall-mounted storage, a work surface or extra shelving?6 Garage Organizing Tips That Really Work

Like look of pergola with plants

This is roughly what I envisaged with vines on arbour. I also like the irregular stonework, but maybe geometric stones better fit with cubic house structure?
