Make an Entrance! If you’ve ever seen a structure set in a lawn without a few plants around it, you know how lonely it can look. It needs the plantings to tie it to the rest of the garden. This arbor is a transition separating one area of the garden from another. Garden plan | from Garden Gate Magazine's FREE eNotes

Trellis Design Ideas: Trellises with Fences or Screens

Trellis Gate. What a GORGEOUS entrance into the backyard. People just might want to have their wedding at my place. :) (Not so sure about the steps. If I keep them, bring them a little farther away from the gate. Looks a tad dangerous.)

Shady arbor bench Imagine sipping your tea or wine in the dappled light of your own backyard arbor bench, your favorite vine overhead. Building a bench and arbor combo is in some ways less complicated than building a standalone bench. The arbor provides the structure, and the bench comes along for the ride with no complex angles or fancy joinery.

Arbors with Fences

Side Yard Garden Structures The key to side yard privacy isn't necessarily to obstruct the view entirely but merely to screen views.

Smart Side-Yard Solutions

~~Relax in Privacy :: A side yard can be a great place for a patio where you can relax with a good book or spend time with the kids. Or get double duty from it by entertaining guests. Install a fence or hedge if there's not already one there, then add a patio made from the material of your choice. Test Garden Tip: For extra privacy, plant strategically to block the view from a neighbor's windows.

Easy Ways to Make Your Yard More Private

Give your favorite plants better view-blocking power by growing them in raised beds or berms. You will be surprised at how much more secluded your yard feels by mounding the soil enough to add a foot or two to your plants' height. Plus it puts medium-size plants at eye level.
