Wooden Garden Arbor
How a wooden garden arbor can enhance your garden and landscape design. Wood arbors add height and drama to the garden more subtly than metal or vinyl arbors as they blend more naturally into the landscape.
If left natural, these wood arbors will fade to a soft gray with age. If you want to keep them looking just the way they do in these pictures, paint them with a sealant before or after assembly.
Of course, you also have the option of painting or staining them any color you like.
