Arbors - A Garden Focal Point

No matter how beautiful a garden decor or landscape design is, over a period of time, it may be due a change. Investing in decorative and functional outdoor accessories that offer beauty and versatility is a frugal way to spend money. An ideal example of a durable, attractive and versatile garden accessory is this wrought iron arbor with seat. 

This arbor with its dome shape and gently curved design details is visually soothing. Just its presence in the garden adds an element of serenity to the atmosphere. The styling of this arbor is perfect for a cottage garden. The seats provide an ideal location for moments of solitude in the garden or for garden conversations with a friend. It creates an opportunity to relax in the midst of gorgeous, aromatic flowers. Most cottage gardens include some type of seating, and this arbor with seat would be a stunning seating option.



Another typical place for adding an arbor is at the entrance to a garden or at the beginning of a pathway leading to a home's entryway. This arbor is an ideal choice for either of those locations. The seats can be placed to the outside of the arbor leaving more room for walking through. In a location such as the beginning of a pathway, the seats may be utilized as a place to put two impressive plants or flowers.



An arbor can be incorporated into almost any type of exterior design. In some instances, they can be used as a focal point in the landscape design. A spotlight can even be added so that the arbor can become an impressive design feature in the evening hours. At the other end of the design scale, an arbor can be positioned so that it becomes a subtle part of the design. An arbor with two seats placed in a private area of the garden would be a wonderful place for intimate conversation on a summer evening. An arbor tucked away in a secluded corner of the lawn or garden could become a private retreat for reading, meditating or simply relaxing.



Arbors can be enjoyed throughout the year. In spring and summer they are a lovely addition to a floral or foliage garden. They can be decorated for summer celebrations, birthday parties or evening events. When the holiday season arrives, the arbor can become a place to add exterior holiday decorations. Lights, ribbons, bows or garland can be added to the arbor. Silk poinsettias or potted evergreens can be placed on the seats.



Choosing an arbor with versatility in its design gives you the opportunity to continue using it year after year in different locations in your landscape. This arbor can be used to enhance the walkway to your door or the pathway into the garden. It can be incorporated into a country, rustic, cottage, vintage or eclectic garden decor. The possibilities are vast when it comes to finding ways to add this beautifully detailed arbor with seat to an outdoor decor.
