Arbors Add Beauty to Your Yard

Garden Arbors are a great way to create a welcoming entry to the home or garden. These simple wooden structures can also be both functional and decorative. They can be used to provide an excellent place to sit and enjoy a pleasant garden view on a garden bench or a couple of chairs underneath the shaded canopy of the garden arbor.

Arbors Add Beauty to Your YardGarden arbors are often set up as shaded places in home gardens or public parks where you can relax and rest. The open frameworks are typically made of latticework or rustic work, functioning also as a trellis for climbing or creeping plants like climbing vines, roses or wisteria. In this way you can blend a useful garden accent into your landscaping plan. As has already been said numerous trailing plants such as morning glory, honeysuckle and grape vines will make use of a cleverly placed garden accent such as an arbor. They can be also used near or on decks or patios to expand your entertainment space.

Arbor designs can also be built using different types of materials but I prefer the wooden garden arbors which give you that stately feel and yet blend well with most garden decor. By using woods like western red Cedar that stands up well to our climates harshness because of its natural oils, you can have an arbor that really lasts a long time. You can choose to leave them as is and let them weather to a faded gray or opt to paint or stain it in the color of your choice.

You might want to create your own unique, eye-catching conversation piece that will be the envy of all your neighbors! You can add a unique and personal touch to your garden that you can admire and enjoy for years to come and save a little money.

Arbors Add Beauty to Your YardCreating a small garden arbor is a fairly easy task. The costs can also be reduced if you are patient enough to shop around and compare prices on the materials you use (The wood, deck screws, crushed stone or gravel, washers, bolts and nuts etc.). No Matter which size you plan the same principles apply, although as the size increases so will the scale and the cost. As an example, using two posts for a small arbor may mean using four posts for a large one, as a bigger arbor would need greater support for strength and stability. The scale or size of materials may also need to increase so that it has proper balance.

Whether you make it yourself or buy one make sure it’s made with wood that will stand up well outdoors like western Red cedar as mentioned before or other cedars or Teak.

Arbors Add Beauty to Your YardMake sure also that you strategically place your wood arbor in your yard so as to accentuate your yard’s appearance. You can accomplish this by buying a beautiful one that harmonizes with both your outdoor furniture and your outdoor living space.

Garden arbors are not only lovely to look at, they promise to give you a lifetime of enjoyment. Just picture that upcoming wedding underneath your arbor, with the lovely bride and groom holding hands and smiling.
