    Living Willow Dome

    Last spring my son Jake and I built a 8 foot wide, 5 foot tall willow dome.  This was the 2nd dome we installed at our home in West Central Wisconsin.

    Site preparation consisted of clearing the ground of all vegetation so we could install the landscape fabric.  The fabric keeps the weeds down and the moisture in.  Allowing the dome to grow with less competition for nutrients, water, and sunlight.  Here is the 1st step once we had completed:
