Germantown, TN's Premiere Arbor Builder
Space and Function
The design of your arbor greatly depends on the function you want it to serve. Many arbors are placed to create a sense of more space, breaking up narrow pathways and creating a beautiful addition to any garden's consistent colors. Many arbors are placed in the walkways lead into or from the home, to help guests find their way back into the home or simply to create a better curb appeal. Deciding where to place your arbor is important and our designers can help you layout your gardens floor plan and pick the best space to include a gorgeous arbor, whether it's sectioning out the 'rooms' of your garden providing a structure for the plants surrounding the arbor. It's important to consider the function of your arbor before committing to a build.
Look and Feel
The look and feel of your arbor is important, and the function of your arbor may help determine the look. Anything close to the home should compliment the colors by either contrasting the mood or blending with a color that varies from the main scheme of your home. If you want hanging pots or climbing vines on your arbor, you may consider designing it to accommodate those functions without interrupting the flow of the aesthetic – this may include something like latticework or design work where you are looking to hang your plants. With a mere entryway arbor where no plants are intended, you can easily go with a much simpler arbor design that does not need to structurally support climbing vines and fruits. With all of this in mind, it will make designing your arbor much easier.
If you're looking to design an arbor to support climbing vines or plants, you will want to consider the type and weight of your plants. Whether it's blooming morning glories or fruiting passionflower, you will want to consider the plants structure, weight and needs. A groove to run a misting system through the arbor can greatly assist water-loving plants while heavy-growth plants may require additional maintenance.
An arbor is a classic addition to the picturesque wedding. You see it in movies and in magazines – what could be a better place to exchange vows? Whether you're hosting weddings or planning your own, an arbor is a wonderful addition to your garden's space to say the infamous “I Do”s.
