Several months ago we started a pleaching project in our Shade Garden at the Arboretum.  As you recall, the pleaching is going to eventually make us a 'hedge in the air'.  Follow this link for more details on the process of PLEACHING.

Here was what our first attempt at trying to control the crape myrtles last November:
The pole is being used to encourage the branches to fuse.

This week more branches were tied together.  We are starting to see our hedge.
The shade plants are happier.
