Garden structures

Garden Structures made from either timber or iron are perfect for making a garden look more attractive. The most common types of garden structure include:


Pergola is the name usually given to a structure which is made up of a number of pillars that support cross beams. It is a very open structure which makes it perfect for placing on a lawn or patio without blocking out any light. Vines and other climbing plants can be planted next to a pergola with the intention to grow up the pillars, making the structure look more natural within your garden. Pergolas are a great garden feature perfect for stylish entertaining. They are the ideal solution for extending your living space.


Wooden or iron garden arches can create an attractive focal point within your garden. There are many different types to choose from including arches with curved or pointed tops. An arch can be used to both distinguish a pathway or seperate different areas of your garden. Vines and other climbing plants can be planted next to a garden arch so that they can grow up the posts in order to make it slightly less of a bold feature within the garden.


Arbour is the name usually given to an arch type structure with a seat in the middle and trellis on the back. An arbour can create a relaxing and beautiful area in your garden. Arbours come in many different styles including curved or pointed tops, and can have a flat back or a corner right angled back. The trellis on the back of an arbour is perfect for climbing plants to grow up.
