As wonderful as it is to fill your garden with plants and flowers, it’s also important to install an area for you to enjoy the fruits of your labour, as well as being a lovely decorative feature for your garden. Arbours and arches make a great addition to the garden both as a place to grow climbing plants and also to create height and interest. Arbours can be placed at the end of a path as a focal point or against an expanse of wall or fence to break it up.

Arches make a statement at the entrance of a garden or over a path, especially when planted with scented climbing plants such as roses or Honeysuckle. They can also look very effective as a frame for a view or to highlight a mirror, ornamental pot or statue. Installing an arbour needn’t be arduous. Our simple tips for installation will mean you have a place of your own in the garden in no time.
