A defining element in garden design
Garden structures are often used as the focal point of a garden, creating spaces within your garden space. They can highly enhance the appearance and style of your yard and are very easy to install and maintain.
Garden structures come in many shapes, sizes and designs and can be placed in a number of areas throughout the garden. If you're looking for fun and creative ways to enhance the appearance of your garden, a garden structure may be just what you're looking for. The type of garden structure you choose will depend on your personal preferences, the size of your garden and the amount of money you are willing to spend.
Remember, adding a garden structure to your yard creates a separate room that can have a completely different theme. They're a way to provide shade and also shelter from the elements so that your garden is available for enjoyment year-round.
Garden trellises are a great addition to any garden. Trellises organize your unruly climbing plants and also provide "walls" for any space you want to keep secluded. Climbing vines and flowers flourish on trellises – they encourage the flowers to grow up and over the trellis. You can use them to set off a beautiful water feature or to create some shade in an especially sunny part of the yard.
Arbors and pergolas give the gardener a space of his or her very own. These garden structures add elegance and sophistication to any yard. Arbors provide a majestic entrance to your garden. In fact, an arbor can enhance the entire appearance of your garden as a whole. Arbors also provide perfect settings for garden benches or swings, which can provide a fascinating place for anyone to dream.
Garden gates can be as elaborate or as basic as you wish. These garden structures will not only protect your plants and flowers from unwanted critters, but will also provide your garden with a structured setting and organized appearance, as well as a little privacy from your neighbors.
Every finished garden needs a garden structure. Some gardeners choose to incorporate all three structural designs into their gardens or overall landscape. Regardless of the type of structure you choose, these items not only create a point of interest in your garden, they also add a touch of class, intellect and old world charm, which can truly set off the beauty that you've worked so hard to achieve.
