Having an Arbor is a gateway to your sanctuary. It can be displayed at various locations and used in different ways. Such as an entrance to a fenced in area, over a walk way, in your flower garden and some have used them for weddings and parties.

My mom has one at the top the steps onto her deck with lights on it and one in the corner of her yard supporting a wisteria. My grand-mother has one place between two windows of her flower room with lights and various plants including mums, daffodils, small vines and more. My favorite is one in the middle of a big round flower garden with a bird feeder hanging in the middle and a bird bath underneath with a couple of stepping stones leading up to the Arbor. With plants such as tulips, hyacinths and snow crocuses for spring blooms and a trumpet vine. Only use one trumpet vine, it is heavy and full and will hide any other vines you have climbing your Arbor.

Trying to find the right Arbor can be frustrating. You try to watch your cost but you might end up spending more once you get it home and decide that it is not what you wanted. Remember the old saying “you get what you pay for”? You have to think of long term with your Arbor, spending a little more now will pay off in the long run. Downfall with going cheap could be the post bend while placing, not big enough, sturdy or the worst, mother nature takes it toll on it and rust or crack. These Arbors are built to last made of wrought iron so they are durable and will not lose the shape or bend. Making them long lasting! You can choose from Antique White, Black or Rust colors and designs for all styles, modern or country. This will be one display that you will want everyone to see and be proud of!

If you live in the country and have a view that just takes your breath away but you feel as if it is missing something. Close your eyes and picture this; The Shabby Chic with seats sitting at the perfect spot over looking your view. This Arbor has seats on either side for you to re-lace and enjoy the view. Having the ground laid with stone or patio blacks. Or maybe you would like The Round Top Arbor with a bench or glider in the middle. Both having your favorite climbers such as clematis, hydrangea vine, morning glories, honeysuckle and so many more. I like to look at different angles to see how I could bring more to myself and my landscape. Once you use your imagination you can bring so much to your yard and not realize it.
