While most garden arbors like this find a place as an entrance, a definition between two garden rooms, or the start of a garden path they can also be placed as an independant free standing piece of garden decor. Covered with flowers or vines and regardless if they lead anywhere, garden arbors can create a sense of invitation out into the garden. Entryways that lead nowhere have a sense of mystery that captures the attention.
Unless a rustic antique look is part of the plan, this garden arbor is in need of some repair and stain or paint. Still, I like the way it looks in this garden as a free standing piece of decor marking a garden path. See free garden arbor plans for ideas on how to build your own arbor from the ground up.
