When I purchased my duplex 20 years ago, my back yard was totally weeds. My family gave me a glass top table and chairs for mother’s day one year and the next year they gave me a plum tree which promptly died and resurrected the following year as a peach tree. I needed a place to put my table and chairs, so I designed and had my pergola built. Then came the fence, landscaping, and finally the scuppernong trellis.
