A few weeks ago I visited Duke Gardens and mentioned the new gazebo. Here it is, appears to be mortise and peg built, I saw no bolts securing it together. The arched timbers I would surmise they were 6 x 12 or larger and cut on a huge bandsaw to make the curves, very cool.
Can you imagine what this will look like when the garden gets going?
This is the new stairs at the main entry to the garden. I recall the old stairs having a ramp for strollers and wheelchairs? I guess I missed the ramp they had to have by ADA code.
The new fountain, sorry rose garden....
The top of the terraces gazebo, if I'm right that is wisteria covering it. Not easy to get a photo of this without somebody inside it. Wish I had a dollar for every wedding that has happened in the lovely spot.
