Designing With Garden Arbors
Placing a garden arch or arbor almost anywhere in a garden says entry, exit, or invitation to another room in the garden. What you do around the arbor is what makes it blend with the rest of the garden plan so that it doesn't appear to be a poorly thought out random placement. Most generally, arbors and arches are legitimate garden decor with a function and purpose of a passage with a path or walkway leading through them. Even still, the decoration around them helps a successful incorporation into the gardens and landscaping.
