BUYING ADVICE

Garden Arches: all you need to know

types of garden arches

Here is a quick summary version of our exclusive buyers guide - read the full version here

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 arches tend to be more suited to traditional settings, and their natural timber construction blends in well. The timber is usually pressure treated to protect against rot and is light green or tan in appearance.

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.

Garden Arbours
In their most basic form arbours are simply metal or wooden archways but with a fixed seat under the arch.

Wooden arbours tend to be more enclosed and are therefore more suited to the variable British weather.

Often supplied in a natural finish, wooden arbours can be painted in bright or heritage shades to blend in with their surroundings.
