Shade is a vital element in any garden, offering a cozy place to sit, relax or dine. Arbor is one of the landscaping features that can be use for this purpose. An arbor is a social, welcoming and stylish addition that simply provides a structure over which climbing plants can be grown and form the shade. For this purpose vines, bougainvillea, jasmine, wisteria, clematis and honey suckle are perfect with fragrant flowers that quickly provide shelter. Avoid plants with prickly leaves and thorns, and provide further support for heavier vines by binding their branches with strings.
When arbor covered with blossom, it adds charm as well as visual interest to the landscape. A well-placed arbor can serve as an entryway to an outdoor spot, create a garden shed and frame a central point too. It can be place at the backyard, entrance, pool or patios, when decorated with outdoor furniture like chairs and small tables, can delineate a gathering or dining spot.
