arbor dream - this would be my Grandma Mabel's dream home. She loved arbors and English type gardens.
I'm liking this a lot... where or where could I do it? By the big tree leading to the shade garden, maybe?? Instead of the box-framed fence door, consider reusing an old door to create a charming entry for your garden. Add a wire mesh where the glass would be for more security.
Arbor with clematis & bench seat. Arbors not only add character to your garden but are a clever vertical structure to grow climbers like edibles or flowers. They soften the frame, add colour, increase growing space and create a shaded nook. More design ideas @ themicrogardener.... | The Micro Gardener
Arbors can work in tandem with paths to establish a defined entry point. Here, the informality of the structure is reinforced by round pavers and gravel. Plants spill over the borders of the pathway for a sweet, cottage-style garden. Curves can either be traditional or casual; this arbor relies on a gentle swoop overhead. A robust vine rambles up and over the arbor.
