Arbours are perfect for areas that need a bit of shade, but not necessarily the full coverage of an undercover gazebo. They provide unobstructed views of the flora and fauna around them, and add a sculptural element to the overall garden design. The cedar posts in the corner of this garden allow light to seep through to the seating next to it, and down to the plants below. The wooden beams match the batten fencing on the boundary of the home, and are illuminated at night by sky-facing spotlights – it’s an arbour and a sculpture in its own right.
