Wooden Garden Arbors

Updated on September 19, 2014

How to Build a Wooden Garden Arbor

Do you want to build a Rose Arbor? A Grape Arbor? A fragrant seat in a secluded corner where you can read or just spend a pleasant hour or two? Not sure where to start? Wooden Garden Arbors can show you where to look!
 

Inspiration

Where to get ideas...

You may have seen a photograph in a magazine or book and wondered where to start, or noticed one at the DIY store and thought it overpriced or not quite what you needed. Or you've taken a fancy to one in your neighborhood and want one too...

What's a Wooden Garden Arbor for?

A wooden garden arbor as a shady nook or a practical arch?

Garden Arbors with seats make good places to get away for a quiet read or just a place to snooze. They are beautiful and practical structures for attractive, scented climbing plants or simply aesthetic garden 'dividers' to lead the eye away and add a touch of mystery...use a Garden Arbor to separate the kid's play area from the adults' formal garden...

Style and Color

Wood or White?

Natural wood Arbors stand alone like smart sentinels or blend into their surroundings in a casual fashion. They can be renewed with subtle-hued varnish or preservative or left to mellow just as you prefer.

Painted Arbors are quaint and charming; white-painted, they evoke nostalgia; when joined with old picket fences, they add a more Colonial look.

      My mother has a white one in her garden. She grows morning glories and they cover it with blooms.
