Space and Function An arbor is a beautiful archway that is often placed in the backyard garden or surrounding beautiful flowers, but has never gone amiss in a beautiful lawn or entrance to a home. It's important to take into consideration the space that is surrounding your arbor. Arbors help separate the space of a mature garden, often helping guests and gardeners alike find their way through paths. Many homeowners have even chosen to place their arbor in the path to their front door, decorating it with lights and climbing plants to show an appreciation of delicate, natural décor.
Look and Feel The look and feel of your arbor is important and will determine how it fits in with the space around it. Whether you want a thin or a wide arbor, a dark-colored or light-colored arbor, it's important to plan ahead. Do you enjoy the look of a wooden arbor? How about vinyl? These questions are important, as well as planning what types of plants you will allow to grow around and on it. Do you want this structure to be close to the door, or further in the garden? Our professional designers can help you plan this out and provide a secondary opinion.
Plants The type of plants that are around your arbor may affect how they grow. For example, many flowering plants may look to climb the arbor. Many homeowners encourage this, and dedcorate their arbors with hanging plants and climbing vines and flowers to add a natural beauty. Weddings Arbors are the perfect addition to any wedding, providing that picturesque arch that many couples say their vows under. Whether you want a fairytale wedding or a quaint backyard ceremony, almost every couple imagines an arch to frame their “I Do” under.
