Summer is here! We usually turn our attention to landscaping the front yard, striving for a beautiful lawn with vibrant flowers and shrubbery to create curb appeal. But how about landscaping your backyard to create a welcoming environment for you, your family and friends to enjoy? How do you create that vibe? How about starting with a welcoming arch-or arbors are now all the rage, serving as a gateway to your yard.
You may not consider it as part of a landscaping plan, but an arbor can set the tone to your yard by serving as a welcoming entranceway. Picture your arbor acting as a guide to your yard, providing a direction for family and friends to go, with a view of a beautiful backyard and garden.
What exactly is an Arbor?
An arbor is a freestanding structure that is made of wood, vinyl, or metal. It is usually 8 to 10 feet tall, allowing room to walk under. An arbor includes two or four posts with usually a slatted roof and is either free-standing or can be connected to your home. An arbor can be several feet wide. The sides of an arbor can be open or constructed with lattice or trellis work to provide the perfect environment to grow vines.
Your welcoming arch or arbor can be personalized to fit your personality or needs and provies multiple uses.
You can grow beautiful climbing plants or vines overhead or place a bench or seating area underneath to sit and enjoy. Build an arbor to serve as shelter on a hot day or use as a place for you or your guests to sit, relax and have a good time. Not only does an arbor provide shade during the day but also serves as the perfect place at night to enjoy the moon and stars.
Consider your welcoming arch or arbor the perfect setting to take wedding, holiday, anniversary or special occasion pictures to create lasting memories. Imagine seeing silk sheer curtains flowing around the arch of your arbor to create that special ambiance.
As part of your yard plan, an arbor can fit in with the way your home is designed. An arbor provides a relaxing area from Spring to Summer into Fall, and helps make your yard feel special.
