A garden arch is a wooden or metal permanent structure that is usually put up at the entrance of a garden path. Sometimes for aesthetic reasons a garden arch is set up in the middle of the garden for a special event like a wedding or an outdoor musical or dance performance.
Generally a garden arch is just a simple open doorway but in some cases it has built in gates that allow the people to enter. The structure of a garden arch has two straight sections that are topped with a curved arch. Sometimes the top arch is gently curved or at times the curve can be quite severe or it can be totally flat too.
Actually the shape of the arch depends on the owner’s likes and dislikes. At times such arches are chosen so that they can support climbers or creepers. A gothic metal garden arch is an extra wide stylish arc that looks really good. Arches can also add height to an otherwise flat garden and also create a fascinating focal point
Garden arches are usually made of tubular iron frame that has a rust proof stainless or bronze finish. Arches are constructed in such a way that they are durable and long lasting. Arches with flowering climbers or vines give a very unique and decorative look. The pathway through the garden arches is often decorated with solar lights or gel burners to give a special effect.
