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.

Wooden Garden Arbors
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.
