Arbors and Trellis
Add one of these arbor designs to your garden, and add a romantic touch, that will also give you more places to plant your roses! These lovely arbors and trellis's give structure to the landscape. They beckon you from afar and force you to gaze in and walk through them.
These arbor designs and outdoor garden structures can define and separate garden spaces. Arbors provide shade, and give support to beautiful vines and flowers.
When combined with a bench, they provide a shady spot to sit and relax.
Wouldn't arbor designs like this be lovely in your garden? And what a perfect spot to say "I do".
Many choices of materials are available, including wood, metal, iron, fiberglass, and even live-branches.
Very rustic (twig branches, or live-branches) can be quite pleasing, if they fit in your garden.
To be a success in your garden:
Make sure it connects to the landscape
By the surrounding plants, or by being attached to a fence,trellis, or other structure. It will look very lonely and out of place stuck in the middle of no where. If you don't already have a spot in mind,look at entryways, or above walkways, that would benefit from one. Try to see the (big picture) of what the future plan for the garden is. Hopefully once it is in place, you won't be moving it!!
It should be in scale with the yard and home.
Choose one that (fits) your garden space!
It should be clearly positioned to encourage walking through.
It should make you want to walk to it, or through it, and explore what's beyond.
You should have the feeling that invites you in, daring you to discover the mysterys within.
As you imagine it in your garden, think about how it will tie into the rest of the garden. Do you want one as an entrance to the garden? Will it have a gate to walk through?
Will it be tucked in the back of the garden with a bench under it for relaxing?
What (if anything) will you grow on it?
Climbing roses, are of course a perfect choice! But also keep in mind other climbers,that could add to the ambience of the garden.
Your climate zone will, of course limit your selections.
A few suggestions:
Clementis, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Passionflower,
Annual vines, such as: Morning Glories, or Sweet Peas grow fast, and make a quick covering!
Very decorative Arbors, are just so beautiful, it would be a shame to obscure them completely with lush vines!
Of course you can always embelish
with climbing roses.

Tips for arbors with gates
Make sure it's stable enough to handle the extra weight of the swinging gate.
Make it Self-closing
To avoid the gate being damaged during high winds, install a self-closing hinge, so it will close & latch when released.
Avoid Obstructions for opening and closing the gate
The bottom of the gate must be high enough to clear hardscapes, such as boulders, or inground lighting.

Sometimes I find a really nice climbing rose that I feel I just can't live without, but I have to tell my-self that I don't really have room for any more climbers. This gives me an idea....
I think it would be a perfect spot for a small bench under it. The wheels of my gardening mind are beginning to turn....How about one in each corner of the garden? At this price, this is possible!

Gates and Fences
When you combine arbors with a fence, you define your garden space. It becomes the entryway, and the fence become walls that direct foot traffic to it. The fence also help to support the widespreading vines that can grow 20 to 30 feet. The vines can spill over on to the fence, giving you even more flowers!
The fence should be visually anchored to it. It should not overpower it, or it will look out of place. Even if it is not literally connected to the fence, the two should appear that they go together.
A shared color, or similiar wood/or material is a must.
Consider a gate such as a
