What to do

  • 1. Mark out a 1 m square on a bare surface.

  • 2. Lay out the 4 × 1.2 m poles to make the square, with 0.2 m extending over at the corners, and lash them together with cable ties or twine where they cross.

  • 3. Take the thinner 1.2–1.8 m bamboo canes and lash them across the square, like struts. This is the top piece.

  • 4. Mark out a 1 m square on the prepared garden bed.

  • 5. Take the four thickest bamboo poles and push them into the ground at the corners of the square.

  • 6. Have two adults lower the top piece over the four upright bamboo poles, then lash the structure together at the corners.

  • 7. Tie some horizontal wool lines around three sides of the structure for decoration and support. Leave the fourth side open.

  • 8. Plant the area with your chosen Asian-inspired plants.

  • 9. Water them in.
