An arbor is a roofed structure within a landscape that provides shelter to some extent. They can be partially covered or have a complete rooftop. They can be installed for a number of purposes including:
- Shelter from weather
- Landscape Accent
- Distinguish areas of landscaping
- Direct traffic flow
- Support foliage
Generally, an arbor is either freestanding or is attached to the home. An arbor is a major structure compared to the smaller trellis. They can be made from wood or iron and can be purchased whole or constructed on site. You can find them complete at garden centers or online.
One of the most popular designs in Arbor’s are the Gazebo and the Arbor and Bench. Simple arbor structures are great for defining sections of your landscape. For instance, you may have a backyard patio area where you and your family barbeque or enjoy and outdoor fireplace.
Leading off the patio, you place an arbor that you must walk through to get to your garden area. This helps to separate the two areas and keep people out of the garden when over visiting, unless they have specific purpose to be in the garden.
Arbors are different from Pergolas in that they are more simple in design and are usually arched on top, whereas Pergolas are generally larger structures that are used for large areas. An example of a Pergola is the covered areas that follows along a garden path. Pergolas can be large or long but Arbors are normally built for only a few people.
Vines and plants are commonly planted to grow on Arbors. Ivies, Vines, roses, and more can be trained to grow a beautiful archway into your garden or yard.
