Add a Touch of Elegance
Wooden arbors, also known as garden arches, have a long history of gracing gardens with their enchanting charm. These timeless structures not only add a touch of elegance to outdoor spaces but also serve practical purposes in gardening and landscaping.
Wooden arbors are garden structures typically made from durable wood, such as cedar, treated pine or a combination of both. They consist of vertical posts, an overhead arch, and sometimes lattice or trellis sides. The arch creates a welcoming entryway or a shaded area, and the sides can support climbing plants, adding natural beauty to the structure.Set up a free consultation
Types of Wooden Arbors
Pergolas are spacious arbors that often feature an open, slatted roof. They provide shade and create a cozy outdoor living space.
Trellis arbors have lattice sides, perfect for training climbing plants like roses, wisteria, or grapevines.
These simple and graceful structures form decorative entryways to gardens, inviting visitors to explore further.
Advantages of Wooden Arbors
Wooden arbors instantly elevate the visual appeal of any garden, lending a rustic, romantic, or classic touch, depending on the design.
Shade and Privacy
Arbors provide a comfortable spot for relaxation and dining, shielded from the sun. Their lattice sides can also offer a sense of privacy.
Support for Climbing Plants
The open framework of arbors is a perfect canvas for training climbing plants, creating a living tapestry of greenery and blossoms.
Choosing the Right Arbor
Selecting the ideal wooden arbor for your garden involves considering factors like the garden’s size, your design preferences, and the intended purpose of the arbor. Pergolas work well for spacious areas, while trellis arbors are perfect for accenting specific garden features or pathways.
Arbors in Garden Design
Wooden arbors can serve as focal points in a garden, directing attention to specific areas or views. They can also define entrances and pathways, creating a structured and organized feel to the garden.
Climbing Plants and Vines
To fully realize the beauty of wooden arbors, consider planting climbing plants and vines. Popular choices include clematis, honeysuckle, and jasmine. Proper care and pruning will ensure healthy growth and vibrant blooms.
