Stunning metalwork by Ironwood Motif at Moulin de Latreille.

Ironwood Motif. A pergola project in the April sunshine.

Our latest project, in the bright, unusually hot sunshine of an April day is to install a pergola over a small courtyard to support a vine and a rambling rose. The roof of the pergola is formed of steel cable and tensioners. Fighting off the abundant rose with its determined thorns and the blossoming wisteria beset by hard working bees we were able to support the large, old vine whilst installing the new structure beneath.

 

The beautiful wisteria almost filling this terrace area.
