Garden Structures - A Photo Gallery

Gardens are so beautiful in themselves, but having some functional and beautiful pieces really help to make even an outdoor space almost a whole other living space to enjoy. I have taken these photos over time, and wanted to share what some gardeners have done with what I am calling "structures", as they were all built and added to nature.

Photos of Garden Structures, Trellises and More.

Photo 1 - This covering, and spot got me so very curious. It gives shade to those that come under its protection from a hot day in the sun. What is so cool about this particular piece, is that it has a garden of gourds hanging down from it! Absolutely fascinating to me, I got the biggest kick out those gourds. I recall hearing people walk through there, some even wondering what they were in the first place.

Photo 2 - In an Ottoman Garden, there is this portion you see here that is partially covered to give some shade to people underneath. What is neat is that the wide slats in the top, which allow for a lot of sun to come through, while still giving some Summer time relief to anyone needing a break from the direct hitting light. It has supporting beams and is just a really cool addition to this garden.

Photo 3 - A Chinese styled gazebo, with a lot of "personality". I love this unique gazebo that has a lot of Chinese influence. There is seating in side, and its large enough that people can move around freely. This needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate just how amazing it really is.

Photo 4 - One of the more beautiful gazebos that I have ever seen. Its just very classy and classical looking. I love the Chinese one too, and they are just so different. Its perfect for the boxwood garden that it is in.

Photo 5 - This structure is very large, and you can see the most of it on the right side of the photo if you click on it, it will enlarge. I love the many wooden arches throughout, as well as room to insert benches where people can come and take a rest.

Photos 6 & 7 - These two are the same structures from slightly different angles. This seems so simple and not too fancy, yet I love it, and its actually got some neat parts of it. The two little pots on either side of the entrance are so cute. The benches inside seem very welcoming.

Photo 8 - A very Victorian piece here, I absolutely love how classy and beautiful it is. There is a bench inside, and a great trellis where clematis and other things can grow freely on. It doesn't offer much shade, but its a very nice piece all the same.

Photo 9 - Its hard to tell from this angle, but this gazebo is quite large inside. I have gone inside here before when it started raining once when I was at this particular garden. It was nice to be caught in a rain shower with this as a place to wait it out.

Photo 10 - This is just a very nice trellis, arch and entry way to a lovely and sunny flower garden.

      Carcro, so glad you got some ideas! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. :)

      Mary, well I just have a passion for taking photos and being out in nature. Its what I enjoy when I have the time to do it. Thank you so much for your kind words and for stopping by my hub here.

      Simone, Ahhh, I hear that! I think you make a great point there! Its like stopping to smell the roses, but different. Stop to sit under the gazebo, don't just keep taking pictures? You are on to something there. :) Once, I was forced to sit under a gazebo to wait out the rain, and it was actually very nice. I had the thought, why not do this more? Where exactly do we need to keep rushing off to I wonder? :) Thanks again.

      It's funny... I've shot a bunch of gazebos, but rarely take an adequate amount of time to sit under them. I should change my ways!
