Architectural elements go a long way toward establishing a garden’s style, sometimes more than the plants that grow up and around them. Giving your plants a vertical dimension to latch onto allows your garden to gain heightened layers of lushness.

An Arbor or Trellis can be a way for you to create a focal point that will incorporate symmetry in your garden sculpture design. A formal garden doesn’t have to mean perfectly pruned and manicured. Combined with the right mix of plants, a unique trellis or strategically placed arbor may be all you need to dress up the
outdoors.

Many kit arbors are made of clear Western red cedar, which is beautiful and speaks to your soul.. A roomy arch arbor can be put on pathways for a casual get away with stately lines that makes in feel like home. Many arbors are used as an entry way to the garden which is simply beautiful with a couple of stepping stones underneath, inviting people to enter. A garden bench sitting under a vine adorned arbor is also a perfect retreat from everyday life.

A simple wall trellis on a garage or garden shed wall, can provide a backdrop for a lovely array of climbing plants. Plants on a southern facing trellis will produce the most flowers and lushes foliage, but many do well even with a northern exposure. A couple of trellis panels spaced equal distance apart will add dimension to any lawn or patio.

We recommend you visit Lawn Patio Barn.com for an exciting display of sturdy and stylish garden sculpture to choose from.
