Functional and Ornamental Arbor Designs

An Arbor is a structure that can greatly contribute to the overall design of your landscape. Arbors, made by Coastal Lumber, add an element of interest to a yard or garden by drawing the eye upward. Whether functional or ornamental, there are many ways you can utilize this beautiful structure to enhance your landscape design.

Arbors can be either functional or purely ornamental. If you’re using an arbor for a functional purpose, consider adding a bench or swing to create a cozy nook for sitting and enjoying your garden. Large arbors can be used as an overhead cover for a deck or patio.

While the top of the arbor will probably not keep out rainwater, it can be designed to cast much needed shade on your outdoor seating area.

Arbors with lattice sides and tops can also provide a supporting structure for vines and climbing plants. Consider planting a climber like clematis, honeysuckle, or trumpet vine at the base of your arbor to create a beautiful floral focal point in your landscape.
