    jncarpenter are you bending those poles/logs or using curved pieces? How are the ends anchored to the ground?

    Yes, the stringers are bent/shaped by burying an "I" shaped structure below ground, save the horizontal top piece (you can see it pretty well in the first 2 pics). I then lag the ends of the stringers down into the "I"...you might need some help with the initial bend if the wood you're using isn't particularly springy

Pics and/or ideas would be great.
    check out what they are building here...

    wood features in my neck of the woods just rot out so fast, so we try to use dirt as much as possible. though chainsawing a couple logs as shown in other post used to fill the jumps so you don't have to use as much dirt works well. as the wood rots everything kinda glues together...

    Nice.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    Hard to see but they're dug into place. Trust me they aren't budging.
