Garden arbors offer a quick and cost effective way to improve the exterior of a home, providing a unique entrance and giving a home pleasant charm and curb appeal. Use arbors to create an entrance to your home that is clean, impressive, and sophisticated, or place in the garden for a peaceful decorative accent.
Using Garden Arbors to Enhance Curb Appeal
Enhance the curb appeal of your home with a garden arbor placed in the front lawn, or anywhere visible from the road. Arbors can be wooden, white vinyl, intricate or simple. An arbor with pergola top is also an excellent solution for a sunny pool or deck area, allowing visitors to lounge beneath the shade as others play in the sun. Pergolas date back to medieval times and historically were part of the architecture of great buildings, walkways, and gardens, creating shady passages from the harsh sun.
Defining a garden from the surrounding yard can be a difficult process in landscaping, though garden arbors make easy work of the layout. An elegant white arbor makes for an ideal entry way into your garden, and add climbing flowers and ivy for additional touches of nature.
Garden Arbor Flowers
A popular method to highlight an arbor is with climbing flowers that grow up and over to create abundant shade and a touch of beauty. There are several types of flowers that climb and cling, from natural plants to delicate roses. The most common climbing plants are:
- Sweet peas: Traditional, old-fashioned climbers with small flowers in pink and white colorings
- Yellow Jasmine: A natural clinger, yellow jasmine has delicate flowers, is easy to grow, and is known for attracting hummingbirds
- Wisteria: One of the easiest climbers to care for, Wisteria grows in full sun, partial sun, or shade and can grow to over 30 ft tall
- Climbing roses: A bit harder to care for, climbing roses do not naturally cling and thus must be attached to arbors with wire
Whatever flower of your choosing, they all offer a bright lift to any garden.

Arbors are common in outdoor weddings. A wedding arbor creates the perfect backdrop for wedding photos, and the married couple traditionally will bring the wedding arbor home to set in the garden as a keepsake. Arbors can create a legacy with warranties of up to 20 years. Our white vinyl arbors are guaranteed not to mold, rot, yellow, crack, or fade, and are virtually maintenance free. Watch children as they play and daydream around the arbor their parents wed beneath, and witness the fascination and amazement as you show visitors the very arbor found in the wedding pictures.
