Metal vs. Wood Arbor


Recently finished a Garden Design adding a similar metal arbor, below.


New construction, the home is American Farmhouse, mostly, architecture.
.
She wanted an arbor for harvest table & twinkle lites.
.
Lapboard siding home, a wood arbor would have been 'too much' more wood.  And the scale 'clunky'.
.
Original brick patio, quite pretty, is postage stamp in size, and common to its size, never used.  I enlarged the space with gravel.
.
Done.
.
Now, finding this particular construction specialist, custom metal arbor.
.
Adore simple solutions with elegance & function.
.
Garden & Be Well,    XO Tara

Always enjoy your blog. Wonder if you can suggest how to find someone to build a copy of this awesome structure.

Gorgeous! But, at my house, the yard-spiders would LOVE it (I seem to attract them in abundance).

I love the combination of wood and metal; gravel and brick.
