Add to beauty and functionality to your garden
Garden arches are an excellent and beautiful addition to any serious garden. They lend a sense of class and sophistication while helping to maintain an order in the sometimes chaotic surroundings of a garden.
Arches can have three distinct and equally important roles in the garden, marrying the need for functionality with the desire for beauty. Firstly, they can be the doorway to your garden. This is important because establishing an entry point for your garden also allows you to have a beginning to the pattern and effect you want your garden to display, and gives you control over where your garden experience will start. Secondly, they provide a different level and surface for growing plants. An arch allows you to experiment with vines and clinging plants that wouldn't be fully utilized on the ground. Lastly, arches can be used to define a pathway through the garden, allowing you to engineer the experience of moving through the garden to produce the exact effects that you wish it to.
Wooden Garden Arches
Although garden arches can be made from a variety of materials, the most common type still remains the traditional wooden garden arch. Wooden garden arches blend well into the natural surroundings of a garden. They can be a simple latticework frame or an intricately carved masterpiece. In addition, plants take well to growing on wood, so wooden garden arches are ideal for use in gardens where the arch is just another planting surface. Wooden garden arches can also weather in the most beautiful and interesting ways, adding a rustic feel and flavor to your garden that changes and evolves as the years go by.
Cedar Garden Arches
If you love the natural feel of a wooden garden arch then you'll absolutely adore cedar garden arches. Cedar garden arches bring you all the style and functionality benefits that you get from traditional wooden garden arches but they also reap the benefit of cedar's natural resistance to weather and insects. This tough, durable wood allows you to maintain your garden arches for years on end, letting them become an almost timeless part of your ever-changing seasonal garden.
Japanese Garden Arches
Designed to give your garden an exotic flair, Japanese garden arches are an easy way to take your garden to the next level of beauty and style. Whether it's a simple doorway arch in the style of traditional Japanese architecture, or a bamboo arch to mark the transition between one area of your garden and another, you'll love what Japanese garden arches do for the look and feel of your special area. A Japanese water bridge arch that brings a small water path to your garden is another great effect to consider. It allows you to maintain a consistent water supply while providing you a breathtaking place to view your garden from.
