Potomac Garden Design Elegance | Arbors, Pergolas, and Trellises
Gardens are a way to connect your home with nature. The plants and flowers you choose for your garden can transform your front, side, or back yards into a colorful getaway, or a tranquil jungle. Fences, walls, arbors, and pergolas can create a focal point, or accent your garden design plans. Anyone one of these features provides the opportunity to grow and enjoy a variety of climbing plants such as clematis, wisteria, jasmine, and/or climbing roses; as well as vine plants such as Boston, Devil’s and English ivy and Dutchman’s pipe; which draw the eye up and around whatever they are clinging to, bringing attention to your garden fixtures.
Arbors are arched frameworks that usually sit at the entrance to a garden. They are usually tall structures with a hollow middle walkway and an openwork design. Some designers opt to include a bench, allowing the arbor to become a shady haven in the garden.
Similar to arbors, pergolas are more architectural in design, exhibiting masonry-styled columns, and open tops.
Trellises were a key element in Renaissance gardens and continued in popularity through the eighteenth century and can lend an air of magic and mystery to your garden.
