An arbor is a simple wooden structure placed in the garden or near the house to act as a focal point or to divide one part of the plot from another. Actually many arbors are far from simple structures and the article that follows illustrates twenty different styles. This comes from the Empress of Dirt website.
Arbors, trellis, obelisks, screens?these are all great ways to add vertical interest to the garden, combining function with art. What starts out as a plant support becomes a beautiful focal point like the arbor in the first image (below).?I?ve gathered a bunch of images from garden tours to give you ideas for your garden.
Vertical structures also help define different areas of the garden, providing both shade and privacy. If privacy is what you want, there?s a bunch more ideas here.
?Here you?ll see supports for climbers, seating areas, bold artistic structures, rustic arbors, and more. While adding one of these items can transform your garden, don?t forget that removing an old one is equally as transformative, also providing a fresh start.

This garden is has a bold, contemporary look I love. It?s all about the incredible structure surrounding the patio area and the use of black stain on the wood including the surrounding garden fence.
