When looking to spruce up your garden - no matter the size or style - garden structures such as garden archways or wall trellises add dimension and depth that cannot be achieved with a pot or statue. A garden arch covered in colorful scented climbers will add height and focus. Gazebos and pergolas separate the exquisite garden from the mundane. To elevate your garden from merely a collection of plants to a distinctive enclave of tranquility that echoes mood, purpose, absence of time and heightened meaning, consider not only what is planted in it, but how your garden is shaped.
Garden Structures can range from simple to extravagant but above all, they define the lines along which your garden will integrate your home with the outside world and help you to create a framework on which your garden will grow.
When researching the purchase of a garden arch we feel it is important to choose a structure that will provide many years of service. There is nothing more disappointing than watching the plant you have nursed from a small transplant to spectacular specimen be cut down due to a failing garden structure, so choose wisely.
There are many types of garden structures in the marketplace - wood, aluminum, steel, even plastic.
The usefulness of a Garden Arch in your Yard:
Arches allow gardeners to place a classic architectural shape as an entry structure that invites and entices people into a garden paradise
Form romantic and fragrant gateways from one part of your garden to another
Add vertical interest to your garden
Provide support for vines and allow you to bring fragrant plants closer for sensory perception
Frame a beautiful view or special piece of art
Place an arch between two different areas of your garden to mark a transition or just heighten anticipation of what lies beyond
Free-standing trellises bring your plants up off the ground providing beautiful flower displays
Place anywhere you like to obtain vertical interest
Strong enough to support vigorous climbing plants
Wall trellises hide unsightly walls
Create interest on boring open walls
Boost your home's curb appeal with flowering vines
Maximize growing space
Our Garden Structures
We carry metal garden structures - mostly steel and aluminum.
When choosing steel we source galvanized steel that is also powder coated. This will ensure the longest life possible for your steel structure.
All our aluminum structures are crafted from a gauge to ensure the strength necessary for the intended use of the trellis, arch or other garden structure.
About oxidation in steel & aluminum:
Steel, when left untreated with galvanization will over time result in iron oxide (rust), which is a soft red colored metal that begins to expand and flake off as it is chemically transformed exposing more of the underlying steel or iron to the air. This process continues until the metal is completely transformed to iron oxide.
Aluminum, while it does not rust, does corrode. Aluminum oxide is different. It is actually quite hard and serves as a protective coating around the underlying aluminum. It doesn’t flake off like iron oxide and therefore, once the outer layer of aluminum “rusts” the process stops and the aluminum is protected. This can result in a mottled whitish finish, which is why all our aluminum structures are powder coated.
