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.
Arbor Covered Patio Four 6 by 6 posts across the front of this patio arbor give the structure a substantial feel. Two lattice panels, which support Armand clematis vines (Clematis armandii), provide a sense of enclosure.
