Pergolas and arches have long been used successfully in garden design to provide strong vertical elements. Their purpose has usually been twofold: to frame views and openings, and to provide welcome shade over areas set aside for entertaining and relaxation. Covered by climbing plants, pergolas can form cool retreats in shaded walkways and arbors.
Since before the Middle Ages, archways in many styles have been constructed to form grand entrances. Initially, arches in garden settings were built from brick or wrought iron and would be in place to highlight an opening in a garden wall or form a simple link between two areas within the garden. At the time of the Renaissance, archways came to be positioned to frame a view or other focal point of interest. Then, as now, the impact of the distant, or partially hidden, view was far stronger. It was not until the last century that the arch itself was framed with shrubs and climbing plants.
“A pergola entwined with sweet-smelling wisteria creates a lovely setting for outdoor dining. In the summer months, this area doubles as an outdoor kitchen.”
“Can you please tell me who you used for the pergola...is it real wood? Thank you”
“Traditional pergola with wisteria over teak dining set. Totally works.”
“I have an outdoor pergola...has a table and chairs and vine-like plants growing.”
“A pergola is another structure you'll enjoy on a walk through a winter garden. Its shape and style stand out when flowers and foliage.”
