1. Crocus Rustique Arch

"Put your trust in the rust with this classic arch that will turn to a rusty bronze colour over time"

Crocus Rustique ArchAlthough it features a classically styled curved top and ladder style side panels, this arch adds a twist - or should we say rust?

Constructed from heavy duty steel rod, the Rustique will live up to its name because it is unpainted, so it will rust naturally over time and take on a wonderful vintage bronze finish.

It it a great option if you prefer the classical arch styling but would like a dash of colour to set it off.

2. Forest Garden Whitby Arch

"A unique arch design based on the famous whalebone arch on Whitby seafront"

Forest Garden Whitby ArchThis is a very unusual arch that has been inspired by the famous Whalebone arch on Whitby's seafront - a monument to that town's role in the whaling industry.

Instead of a traditional semi-circular or gothic pointed top section, the Whitby's slatted side panels come together and overlap at the top, echoing the shape of that famous monument.

This design also makes it unusually tall at over 2.5 metres, and it's wide too at 1.4 metres between the posts, so ideal for spanning a path or small seat.
