Gavin Duke (GD): I grew up in rural Arkansas, and in the summers, my parents would create a vegetable garden, which I helped tend. It wasn’t big, although it seemed so to me as a child.

My maternal grandfather was a carpenter, and I also developed a curiosity about building blocks and nailing things together at an early age. Combining ..read more

Text: Jennifer Boles Trellises have been fixtures in well-appointed gardens since ancient times. Conceived as an upright support for climbing vines, whose tendrils could weave up and through the lattice design, wooden trelliswork is believed to have first been employed by Egyptian gardeners. In turn, adopted throughout the Far and Middle East, trellises were also used in ancient Rome, even earning an appearance in one of Pompeii’s surviving wall frescoes.

The utility of pocket doors became even more apparent during the postwar building e ..read more
