 14536 Outdoor-Structures

When you think of a garden, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?  Pottery, flowers, textured foliage.  Without a good structure a garden is just a collection of plants.  Follow these simple steps a turn a boring garden into a indoor room.

The 3 most common structures are arbors, trellises and pergolas.  They can create doorways to your garden, walls that aren't there and a ceiling which to hang potted plants on.
 
 14539Arbor:  Creates a sense of arrival to an outdoor room.  You can cover it with plants, set 2 pots on each side like an entryway, and create an inviting way into your yard or garden areas.  It provides a sense of arrival that comes with passing through it, comparable to arriving in a home through a foyer rather than simply entering a doorway.

This little passageway becomes a room of it's own.  A few simple tips are a deeper passageway extends the experience and you should allow a height of 7 feet to make it comfortable to walk under.
 
 14540Trellis:  Works just like a wall, where no wall exists.  It is mostly open but lends a feeling of enclosure when you cover the trellis with potted plant vines.  You can attache one to an outside blank wall to add decoration or make it freestanding and use as a barrier to block unsightly air conditioning equipment or a neighbors window.  It doesn't provide the same privacy as a solid fence, but it is more decorative when there are plants covering it.
 
 14541Pergola:  Thought it doesn't provide closed, coverage, it does provide shade and a sense of enclosure.  Often used to cover seating or dining table options.  Set potted plants around the posts and let the potted plants climb up them and cover the top, creating a living ceiling.

Grape covered pergolas are very popular and they can keep you dry during light rain or shaded in intense sunlight.  Try to match the style of your house or any other garden structures you may have
