To get the look: we planted hardenbergia either side of the trellis panel. Ceramic Water Work is by Rick Rudd www.rickrudd.com.
Wash garage walls with Resene Paint Prep and Housewash and paint with one coat of Resene Concrete Primer. Allow to dry. The fibrolite walls of this garage are quite new. For older concrete surfaces, contact Resene for advice.
Paint the trellis panel and fence capping with one coat of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat. Allow to dry.
Paint the trellis and fence capping with two coats of Resene Black Forest allowing two hours to dry between coats.
Using the mitre box, handsaw and set square, create a 1.8m square frame from the fence capping, as shown. Secure at each corner with brass screws.
Using a large brush and 'stippling' technique, apply a generous coat of Resene Sandtex in Resene El Salva, covering the 1.75m square. Allow to dry.
Using a paint roller, apply two coats of Resene Enamacryl in Resene Copper Fire to the 1.75m square. Allow to dry and finish off with one coat of Resene Concrete Clear.
