Examples of Arbor Designs

Front Entries: My favorite way to use an arbor is as front entries. It adds charm and character to the front of your home.

But it must be tall enough, at least 76 inches tall and also wide enough. A minimum of 3 feet wide, but 4-5 feet would be better, so 2 people could walk through it.

A wider arbor also makes it more convenient to bring something through it.

With Fences: Combining an arbor with a fence visually anchors the arbor, which could look a bit lonely sitting all by itself in an open space.

It's also a great way to use it as an entrance to your backyard, or to an herb garden.

Tunnel Arbors: I fell in love with tunnel arbors when visiting a public garden in Paris.

They are simply enchanting and add such drama to a garden.

It's best use is over a garden walk or path. Tunnel arbors are mostly made of metals, and look lovely trained with climbing roses.

Rustic Arbors: Rustic arbors made of sturdy branches with the bark still attached adds a rustic charm to a wooded landscape or in the country.

It's an arbor style very popular in Western settings, or with log cabins

Arbor With Bench

An arbor with a bench either attached to it, or free-standing under the arbor, creates a small moni environment.

It's a place to have a quiet converation and some solitude.

Arbors With Gate

If you want to position your arbor as an entrance to your front yard, it makes sense to to have an arbor with a gate.

A gate adds a bit of security and keeps pets and kids out of yard.
