Arbours and arches adorned with climbing flowers or vines are attractive and evocative garden features well worth your consideration. A seated arbour makes a wonderfully secluded spot in which to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or read a book, while an arch is a tasteful piece of garden furniture which draws the eye and, with the right plantings, fills the senses too.
Whether you’re interested in garden structures which double as outdoor furniture, or a romantic arch through which to wander, here at Waltons, we’re sure to stock just the thing you’re looking for. We even have a full range of children’s furniture for the garden which young ones will love to use for play or al fresco mealtimes.
What is an arbour?
Arbours and arches are somewhat interchangeable terms, but an arbour is a piece of garden furniture which, as well as featuring an archway, often has seating too. It’s perfect for training climbing plants over to create a shady spot in which to sit and enjoy your garden. An arbour is a great place for adults to relax, but also works well as an item of children’s garden furniture, providing a semi-enclosed space in which to play or read. Choose from a basic, open structure or opt for something much more substantial with a roof to protect you from summer showers.
What is a pergola?
A pergola has uprights supporting an open roof comprised of a lattice or framework. It’s more substantial than an arbour – a bigger garden construction rather than an item of garden furniture, it’s perfect for training climbing plants over. Vines are a particularly good choice for pergola plantings, helping to create a shaded space which is perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. As an architectural feature, a pergola makes an excellent focal point for your garden.
