Arbor comes in various styles, materials and designs like Iron, vinyl, aluminum, wood, copper or plastic, and you can beautify them with gates, swings and benches. Especially adding a gate creates privacy and a welcoming feel to your garden. Vinyl is most popular material for arbor because it is maintenance free and will not lose color. Copper is very strong and iron with powder coating is long lasting.
Location of an arbor plays an important role to complete your decor. No matter what design or material you select, the perfect placement will add a unique look to your outdoor space. An entrance arbor can create entrance way and emphasize the gate area. A focal point arbor adds a decorative touch to other lawn furnishings and adornments. If you want to highlight sculptures, plants, swings, benches then install garden arbor above and place your items around it. Square or Camelot style arbors are only differing from common arbors in the sense that they have no arch at the top. They can place in different garden sections, entrance ways and around any backyard furnishings. Hanging or climbing plants from the horizontal beams make softer the look and adds curiosity.
You can choose any type of arbor from different varieties, which can suit your garden and home style. If it is not possible to install a permanent arbor, then you can built a flat topped, portable arbor that you can break down into is components for moving or storage.
