A Pretty Metal Arch
Back to Nature with Gardman
Gardman have a number of nicely detailed metal arches at the moment, but their Nature arch is particularly attractive and part of a 10 part range of garden items.
The side panels of this tubular iron archway are decorated with motifs of leaves and birds. It's also finished in a pleasing dark brown colour.
There are other matching products in the Nature range including hanging basket brackets, planters and trellis panels so you can get a nice coordinated effect in your garden.
Like all Gardman arches it's flat-packed but easily assembled, and it's very well priced too. Worth a look if you are on a budget but want something more than a basic black metal arch.

A Garden Arch That Has Its Own Lights!
Many people add a string of lights to their garden arches to make an interesting night time display, so we were particularly interested in this arch from Greenfingers.
This metal garden arch comes supplied with two carriage style LED lights that are solar powered. It would make a wondeful entrance to your front garden and there's even a welcome sign in the pack too!
The arch itself is easy to put together and at around £33 is fantastic value, and is especially useful now that the nights are getting longer!
The Sweet Pea Garden Arch
A lot of metal garden arches tend to opt for diamond lattice or vertical/horizontal line details on their side panels, so this new arch from Greenfingers is quite interesting.
The flower design on the side is eyecatching and yet still provides plenty of opportunities for climbing plants to get a hold.
Despite the name, any climbing plants will love this one, and at around £35 with free delivery you'll love the price too!
Garden Arches with Gates
If you are planning to put a gateway in your garden, maybe at the top of the front path or dividing two areas in your back garden, why not make more of an impact by using a garden arch and gate combination.
Finding one is easier said then done, but we have managed to track down three of the best and what's even better is that they are all under £100.
Made from black powder coated tubular steel, this arch features some nice scrollwork design that works really well.
We Like: Great value from Greenfingers, a leading garden items supplier.
Width: 127 cm
Height: 222 cm
Depth: 54 cm
Long been a best seller, the Westminster arch is available in both standalone form and also has gate and seat options.

Loire from Gardman
New White-Grey Metal Arch
Gardman have just released a new range of garden products - their Signature Loire range features 9 items such as obelisks and planters, as well as this elegant metal archway.
All products in the Loire range feature some lovely ornate scrollwork, and are finished in a distressed white-grey colour which makes a nice change from the usual black.
The Oriental Look
Here are two wooden garden arches sporting a distinctly Japanese design, that would suit not only an oriental style setting but would look great in any space. Both are priced around £80 so are great value too and made from sustainably sourced timber.
Greenfingers Japanese Style Arch
This arch really has cracked the Japanese look with the triangular top and of course those circular side 'windows'. It is made from high quality fir and is easily put together.
Greenfingers Premier Arch
This wooden arch has an unusual side design that has both diamond trellis and vertical bars that is not only visually striking but also gives climbing plants plenty of chances to get established.

The Convertible Garden Arches
When is a garden arch not an arch? When it can also be a seat or a gateway! Both the Westminster and Kensington metal arches from Gardman have a couple of great optional extras.

The Westminster is a black power coated metal arch is classically styled with strong vertical side details. Both seat and gate options are readily available and easily installed. Comes with ground spikes for installing in difficult ground conditions.

Very similar to the Westminster at first glance, the Kensington has a slightly different style to it's vertical side bars. It's also slightly taller and wider and is painted a very charming dark green (official name: verdigras). Also has seat and gate options and comes with useful ground spikes.
Arch and Seat For Under £100

Considering it's price, it has a very ornate design to the seat with criss-cross curves and scrollwork to the top. The sides too have a mix of scrollwork and vertical bars making a great anchor for climbing plants.

Why buy a garden arch?
An archway can add height to a flat garden and provides an ideal home for colourful and fragrant climbing plants. A well-placed arch can also divide a garden into separate areas or, in conjunction with hedges or fencing, screen off utility areas such as washing lines or bins.
Metal or wooden garden arches?
Wooden garden arches for gardens tend to be more suited to traditional settings, and their natural timber construction blends in well. The timer is usually pressure treated to protect against rot, and they are usually of a green of brown colour. Trellis side panels are popular, as is the rustic effect made with rounded larch poles.
Metal arches are more contemporary are are well suited to more urban situations. Most metal arches for gardens are plain steel or painted black and can range from simple designs to those with very ornate detailing. Side panels can sometimes be trellis style but often they are open. Some galvanised steel frames can easily be painted any colour you like.
In their most basic form arbours are simply garden archways but with a fixed seat under the arch. They can be metal or wooden. Wooden arbours tend to be more enclosed are therefore more suited to the variable British weather. Often supplied in a natural finish, wooden arbours are often painted in bright or heritage shades to blend in with their surroundings.
