How do I fix my arbour in my garden?
Each product is different and may come with different ways to secure it into the ground. Some arbours are created with galvanised base fittings that are also rust-resistant whereas others may need additional purchases if you need that peace of mind. Check out the features when you purchase your arbour so you can find out what it comes with.
Where do you put an arbour?
You can make anywhere in your garden home for your structure, just as long as the ground is level and you've cleared and rocks and weeds that might interfere with its placement. If nowhere in your garden is level enough, you can add patio paving or decking to give it the support it needs. This is ideal for wooden arbours to avoid the posts rotting over time.
Take a look at your garden and where you think it would be best to relax. Do you want to sit among blooming flowers and wildlife or have a quaint view of your water feature? Do you want evergreen climbing plants to entwine through the design or prioritise catching the sun as you read a book? You can get totally creative here and create the garden of your dreams.
How long do arbours last?
The lifespan of an arbour can depend on many different factors, including the material and how well you care for it. Generally, metal designs will last longer than wooden and also require less maintenance – just a wipe over every now and again. For wooden arbours, they can last up to 20 years whereas metal ones can live even longer.
