Freestanding Wrought-Iron Garden Arches for Rooftop Gardens, Patios and Paths
If you want to add an extra touch of green or a splash of colour to a space but it isn’t possible to anchor a structure such as a garden arch directly into the ground, for example on a roof terrace, balcony, patio or path, then a freestanding metal arch with welded-on planters could be the perfect solution.
Sturdy and Solid Wrought-Iron Garden Arches with Metal Planters
Thanks to their weight, our metal garden arches with planters are sturdy and storm-proof. A heavy Versailles planter flanks the garden arch on each side. Welded to the sides of the arch, the planters are solid and stable enough to function as ‘feet’ for the freestanding rose arch. This design means that the structure is completely secure, despite being freestanding and 270 centimetres in height. It stands as firmly on the ground as it would if it were concreted in. The structure becomes even more stable if the two solid metal planters are weighted down with a metal plate. For anyone wanting to really be on the safe side, we also offer freestanding garden arches with small welded-on base plates that can be bolted on to the terrace, patio or path itself.
Assembling a Freestanding Metal Rose Arch
A freestanding garden arch with planters can be assembled in no time at all, whether it’s in a green-roof garden, on a patio or on a path. The installation kit, which is included with every arch we sell, allows for simple construction. And the process really is quick and easy: whilst for regular arches you would need to dig holes and worry about things like cement and frost-free foundations, for a freestanding arch you simply put it in place. All you need to check is that the ground in your chosen spot is level. Whether it’s tiles, decking or gravel, the flooring itself remains untouched. What’s more, if you decide a few months down the line that you’d like to reposition the freestanding trellis arch to a different part of your rooftop garden or patio, you can do so simply and easily. No digging, no drama, no fuss – just a supremely adaptable garden ornament that can be put straight into place to add a touch of grandeur to any space. Get creative and conjure up a sense of the Romantic period in your flat-roof garden, on your terrace, in your restaurant garden or on the path leading up to your wedding chapel or venue.
A Container in a Container: Flexibility for Tub Plants
Once the arch is securely in place, you can get on with the fun bit: planting your choice of flowers and greenery in the removable containers within the two planters. One option is to go for tub plants. If you do decide to grow frost-sensitive container plants in the planters, you’ll obviously want to take them inside in the autumn to overwinter indoors – and the process couldn’t be simpler. All you need to do is remove the inner containers from each planter – the ones in which you planted everything in the first place. The heavy rose arch and the planters themselves can stay right where they are. Whilst your tub plants are cosy and warm inside, the freestanding metal garden arch with planters does not need to stand empty: you could decorate it for the festive season with lights, wreathes or even a bauble or two if the mood takes you!
Growing Roses in the Planters and over the Garden Arch
Each of the two metal Versailles planters measures 44 x 52 x 51 centimetres – the perfect size to accommodate a variety of types of roses. A good choice of rose for this kind of garden arch with planters would be the ‘Florentina’ climbing rose, which has glorious red blooms that are eye-catching and somewhat reminiscent of peonies. This distinctive rose will scale the arch in next to no time and grow to around 200 centimetres in height. Standard roses, such as the hybrid tea rose ‘Athena’, can also be used to flank a garden arch and give it a delicate charm. There are countless ways of planting a freestanding rose arch, so it’s worth giving your imagination free reign and seeing where it takes you!
Integrated Watering System for the Planters on Your Trellis Arch
Soon, the days of leaving water bottles upended in your plant pots when you go away will be a thing of the past. We are happy to announce that, from spring 2020, our customers will also be able to buy all of our rose arch planters with an integrated watering system. When buying one of our garden arches with planters online, it will be possible to select via a drop-down menu whether you would like the planters with or without the integrated watering system. The idea, in a nutshell, is that a small water reservoir at the bottom of each planter’s fleece-lined inner container ensures that the moisture is distributed evenly to the plant’s root system. This handy watering feature is incredibly easy to use and will allow you to go on holiday without having to organise a plant-sitter. You will be able to enjoy your time away safe in the knowledge that your plants will be doing just fine whilst you’re gone. This feature can also be helpful for the absent-minded or particularly busy gardener!
Freestanding Rose Arches: Flexible and Adaptable Garden Features
A freestanding trellis arch with rooftop planters is extremely flexible and can be integrated into a space in various ways, something that is very much appreciated and valued by both professional landscape gardeners and hobby gardeners alike. One of these arches allows you to create a glorious arc of blooming flowers wherever you’d like to have one – whether it’s at the entrance to your home, in your roof-terrace garden, on the path leading to your garage or pretty much anywhere else imaginable. Our freestanding garden arches are even used at various types of events, for which they are decorated accordingly. The arches are extremely easy to assemble on site, wherever and whenever the event is due to take place. What creative ideas spring to mind for you when you picture yourself as the proud owner of an exclusive freestanding metal rose arch? Do you already see in your mind’s eye a stunning floral entranceway standing tall before your home? Or maybe you’re picturing an arbour seat in your rooftop garden? Whatever it is you’re dreaming of, chances are it’s doable with a freestanding metal garden arch with planters.
Attractive Freestanding Metal Rose Arches in Numerous Styles
Just like lots of garden styles, many freestanding rose arches have also been shaped and influenced by past eras and epochs. The Romantic, Gothic and Victorian periods have all left their marks on the design of metal rose arches and planters. Over the years, both architecture from these periods and English horticulture have inspired the style of our arches. The shape of the arch, the steel bands and tubing in an attractive array of sizes, and the latticework structure means that each arch is truly a piece of art in its own right. In order to give our customers the widest and most exciting range of freestanding trellis arches with planters, we also offer the arches in various combinations, such as with an integrated bench, side fencing or a double garden gate.
Customisable Garden Arches and Planters
A standard Classic Garden Elements freestanding garden arch with Versailles planters comes in wrought-iron black. However, if desired, we can also produce the arch and planters in the RAL colour of your choice. The production team in our workshop are always more than happy to deliver pieces customised to your specific wishes – whether in terms of colour, design or size. We are always open to new ideas, but the only thing we won’t compromise on or change is the material of our products: all Classic Garden Elements garden ornaments are made from metal. From arches to Versailles planters, benches to gates, each individual element of our high-quality, exclusive rose arches is hand crafted, hot-dip galvanised and powder coated. This ensures that your elegant garden arch will look good for years and years to come.

Create that holiday feeling on your rooftop garden with a freestanding garden arch
If you’re looking for a way to add some greenery to your rooftop garden, then a freestanding garden arch with planters could be the perfect solution. Thanks to the two heavy planters on either side of the garden archway, the entire structure is totally stormproof. Upon request, we can also provide metal plates that can be laid into the bottom of the garden planters to weight them down further. For any customers who really want to be on the safe side, we also offer freestanding garden arches with small welded-on metal base plates, which can be bolted onto the floor of your rooftop garden.
Stable and secure freestanding garden arches
For situations in which securing a garden structure into the ground with foundations is not possible, a freestanding metal garden arch with planters is a fantastic alternative. This means that rose lovers can finally offer their beloved roses a freestanding climbing support right there on the rooftop garden, terrace or pathway. Solid metal rooftop planters take on the role of stabilising the rose arch. This means that, despite being around 270 cm tall, a freestanding metal garden arch is just as stable as those that are cemented into the ground!
A freestanding rose arch with planters: suitable for any outdoor space
Freestanding garden arches are an incredibly versatile design element that allow landscape gardeners and hobby gardeners alike to create magical floral archways wherever they want to. The sky’s the limit here: from entranceways to rooftop gardens, pathways to rose gardens, a freestanding metal garden arch with planters fits in perfectly. At event locations, these wonderful structures can be used to create a breathtakingly beautiful floral display, as they can be installed quickly on site and decorated in keeping with the event. What creative ideas come to mind for you when you think of a freestanding rose arch with planters? Are you imagining a vibrant and inviting entranceway to your garden, or perhaps an arbour seat on your balcony? Or maybe you’re planning your wedding day and dreaming of starting your walk down the aisle by gliding through a gloriously romantic rose arch? Our freestanding garden arches can be used in so many different ways, and as we have numerous models to choose from, you’re bound to find the one that works for you!
The container-in-container system
When your container plants need to be brought inside to overwinter, you – or your gardener – will have it easy, thanks to the clever container-in-container system we use for our garden planters. All you’ll have to do is take the plastic inner container out of the heavy outer container and carry it inside! The garden archway and two planters can just stay right where they are. Whilst your plants are safe and warm inside, you could decorate the freestanding garden arch with fairy lights or even Christmas decorations – the perfect way to ensure you get the most out of your trellis arch with planters all year round.
Our Versailles planters – the secure ‘feet’ of a freestanding garden arch
On each side of our freestanding garden arches is an attractive yet sturdy Versailles planter. Assuming the structure is placed on a flat, solid surface, such as a tiled, level terrace, then the heavy planters function fantastically as the ‘feet’ of the freestanding garden archway and make it incredibly stable. Each of the two Versailles planters measures 44 x 52 x 51 cm, the perfect size to take the plants you choose to grow up and over the garden archway. The Florentina climbing rose, which has gorgeous red blooms, is a great choice for rooftop planters. It will start to make its way up the freestanding garden arch in the blink of an eye, eventually reaching a height of around 200 cm. Standard roses like the Athena hybrid tea rose also work brilliantly and add a touch of delicate charm to the garden archway. There are countless ways of planting up a freestanding garden arch – so let your imagination run wild!
Freestanding metal rose arches in various designs
Just like many garden styles, freestanding rose arches are also influenced by historical eras. The Romantic, Gothic and Victorian periods are all significant when it comes to the designs of metal garden arches and planters. Buildings from these eras and English garden culture were the inspiration for many of the designs. The varying shapes of the arches, thicknesses of the steel bands and steel tubing, and styles of the latticework means that each model is a unique piece of metal garden artwork. To offer our customers even more flexibility in designing the garden of their dreams, we also offer our freestanding garden arches with an integrated bench (also known as arbour seats) or with a high gate or garden gate.
Metal garden arches that require no complex installation
The beauty of a Classic Garden Elements freestanding garden arch with planters is that it can be installed in next to no time. We provide an installation set that makes constructing your new garden arch a doddle. Whilst regular garden arches need to be cemented into the earth, a freestanding garden arch is simply placed onto flat ground. The plaster, tiles, floorboards or gravel below remain untouched. It couldn’t be simpler! And if you fancy moving the rose arch around once in a while, you can do so with ease. A freestanding rose arch is one of the most captivating decorative elements you could add to your garden, balcony or terrace – so why not get creative and bring a touch of the Romantic period to your outside space?
Ordering a bespoke rose arch with planters
As standard, we produce all of our freestanding garden arches in black. However, you can also order them in any other RAL colour, if you prefer. We are always happy to make bespoke pieces for you – whether that’s by producing an item in a different colour, size or even design. The only thing we won’t compromise on is the material. All of our garden structures are made from metal, and each piece consists of individual steel elements that have been welded together by hand. Each item is then hot-dip galvanised and powder coated to ensure it’s fully weatherproof.
