Magical, romantic, enchanting or simply charming – you could use all of these adjectives to describe a Classic Garden Elements garden arch with gate. The feeling created by an individual piece depends largely on its design and the material from which it is made. A wooden rose arch with gate feels quite rustic and earthy, whilst the delicate shape and fine metal detailing of a wrought-iron archway has an almost mesmerising quality to it. In deciding on the optimal material and colour for an arch, experienced landscape gardeners usually take their cue from the style of the property itself, to ensure that the rose arch with gate matches the feel of the home or estate in which it will stand. An iron garden arch with gate that has been both hot-dip galvanised and powder coated has a lot going for it and is an excellent choice for both gardens and parks. These arches come in many different designs and are extremely adaptable – they can be easily integrated into just about any garden fence, wall or hedge. And, unlike a wooden garden arch with gate, they do not need to be regularly repainted or treated. In fact, an iron archway will look first-class and well-maintained for generations to come – without you having to lift even a finger. That’s right: absolutely no maintenance work is required at all! The advantages of this are threefold. One, it will save you money. Two, it will save you time. And three, your climbing plants will be extremely grateful to you – they would much rather be left to make their way up and along the arch in peace than be showered in toxic products every year or so. And since it’s the flowers themselves that will really give your trellis arch with gate that personal touch, it’s worth keeping them happy!
Solid Construction – Essential for a Garden Arch with Gate
It’s absolutely essential that a metal garden arch with gate is solidly anchored into the ground. It has to be able to stand firm and take the weight of all its flowers and plants, even in rainy, windy or extremely cold weather. The kind of weight that an arch covered end to end in blooming wisteria has to hold up shouldn’t be underestimated! But it’s not just the arch itself that needs to be strong and robust – the gate is also going to see its fair share of action and has to be able to withstand being constantly opened and closed. And because – chances are – not everyone will be gentle with it, it needs to survive being slammed shut on occasion, too. We offer garden arches with both single and double gates. For optical reasons, if the width of the gate will be less than 120 cm, we recommend choosing a single gate. For gates any wider than that, it’s best to go for a double gate – not only because it looks more attractive but also to ensure that the weight of the gate is spread over both sides so that it opens and closes smoothly. A high-quality Classic Garden Elements garden arch and gate fulfils all of these criteria and then some. Each piece is welded from solid steel tubing and bands, then hot-dip galvanised, brushed and powder coated. This means that the surface is permanently protected from corrosion and rust. To ensure the arch’s long-term stability, the ground anchors included with every arch and gate set need to be cemented into the ground deeply enough to ensure the structure has a frost-proof foundation. In the UK, this depth is around 80 cm. The individual pieces are easy to assemble and instructions are included for ease of construction. Depending on the model, the single or double wrought-iron gate can be opened using either a latch or a locking handle; it swings open with ease and then closes perfectly behind you. At Classic Garden Elements we know that in order to truly enjoy something, it has to work flawlessly and be a pleasure to use. The care and attention to detail that goes in to producing every one of our metal garden arches with gate means that they are sure to put a smile on your face from the first time you walk through them to the hundredth.
Types of Garden Arch with Gate and Tips for Planting Them
Imagine if you could enter your garden by walking under a magical, dreamy archway of blossoms and blooms. The Brighton garden arch with gate can make this dream a reality. This metal rose arch has a gothic-style pointed arch, a detail that further enhances its already elegant design. A black wrought-iron trellis arch contrasts stunningly with deep red roses. In the summer, when the arch is covered in flowers in full bloom, its stunning, romantic appearance puts one in mind of Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Our Portofino garden arch with gate, by contrast, has an entirely different design. Here, the perfectly round arch takes centre stage. Its shape means you’ll be able to pass through and under it with ease all year round. This metal rose arch with gate looks especially elegant with cream-coloured roses climbing up it. Claire Austin, a stunning climbing rose, is a great choice for this archway and will grow over it with ease, turning the trellis arch with gate into a gorgeous floral arc for all to admire. This stunning metal trellis arch with gate brings a truly sophisticated touch to a formal garden. One extremely attractive way of replacing part of the fencing or hedging that demarcates your property is to install our Kiftsgate garden arch with garden gate and fence. Customers are often drawn to its delicate style and smooth shapes. Our trademark pine cone completes the design, standing proud atop the pointed arch. From June to September, when adorned with Clematis ‘Romantika’, its eye-catching beauty is likely to stop your guests in their tracks as they pause a moment to take in such a glorious sight.
Choosing the Perfect Colour for Your Metal Arch with Gate
It’s not just the design and choice of flowers that determine the overall personality and feeling of your metal arch with gate. Its colour is crucial, too. Classic garden choices are black and, of course, green. But in the right context, other colours can work equally well – or sometimes even better. For example, a white arch and gate would be a good choice for a historical villa. For a property with a wild, romantic look, a rust-coloured trellis arch with gate would be ideal and entirely in keeping with the overall tone of the space. A cool metallic grey archway would fit in well in a more modern environment. The choice of colour is as personal as the choice of design, which is why each of our metal arches is available in any colour you would like. Additional costs may apply depending on the colour you choose.

Garden arches with gates
Romantic, enchanting, captivating and even magical. All of these adjectives can be used to describe a garden arch with gate. There are countless styles and designs, all of which give the rose arch with gate a different look and feel. For example, a wooden garden arch will feel quite rustic, whilst a metal trellis arch with gate will look wonderfully delicate and light. Experienced landscape gardeners will choose the material and colour based on the style of the property itself. A metal garden arch with gate that has been hot-dip galvanised and powder coated has many advantages. For example, whilst a wooden garden arch and gate will need to be repainted regularly, a metal rose arch requires no maintenance and will look just as splendid in 10 years’ time as it does today. This, of course, saves you both time and money. It’s also better for the climbing plants themselves, who will be grateful to be left in peace to make their way up and over the garden arch without getting covered in toxic fumes. And since your choice of flowers and plants is what makes your rose arch with gate really personal and customised, you want them to be happy and grow well!
Solid construction: essential for a garden arch with gate
No matter the design, two things are essential when it comes to a rose arch with gate: it has to be solidly constructed and stable. The reason for this is that the garden arch needs to be able to take the weight of the plants and blossom even when they are made heavier by rain – and something like a wisteria in full bloom is surprisingly weighty. The gate also needs to be robust as it has to withstand being constantly opened and closed – not always gently! A Classic Garden Elements metal garden arch with gate fulfils all of these requirements and then some! All of our products are made from solid steel bands and pieces of steel tubing. These individual steel elements are then welded together by hand before the entire structure is hot-dip galvanised and powder coated. This ensures the metal is protected from corrosion and rust. There are two types of gates available – high gates or lower garden gates. Both models swing freely and are easy to close using either a latch or a locking handle. Our products are of the highest quality, so we are confident that you will fall more in love with your new metal arch with gate each time you pass through it!
Garden arches with gates that need to be cemented into the ground
A Classic Garden Elements garden arch with gate is an incredibly sturdy and stormproof structure, assuming you install it correctly. The construction and installation process works as follows. Firstly, you need to assemble the garden arch with gate, including the ground anchors, a process best carried out when the structure is lying on the ground. The individual pieces of the arch and gate must first be inserted into one another using a simple connecting system. Once the structure has been assembled, you then insert and tighten a number of screws that hold everything firmly in place. When you have finished, these screws will be invisible and serve only to give the structure its stability. Then you need to dig the holes for the foundations. Dig two holes in the ground where you want your garden arch with gate to stand. They need to be around 100 cm deep. Then fill the holes with about 20 cm of drainage material – something like gravel, for example – so that in the end the holes will be around 80 cm deep. Now position the garden arch with gate into the pre-prepared holes. Test whether or not the gate opens, closes and locks correctly. It needs to move smoothly and not stick anywhere. Use a laser spirit level to ensure that everything is vertical. Next you need to fix the garden arch with gate in place so that it cannot move, using large stones or wooden supports. When it’s secure and in the perfect position, pour quick-setting concrete into the holes. Leave the concrete to cure, which usually takes around three days. Make sure you leave the wooden or stone supports in place as the concrete hardens. And that’s it!
Freestanding garden arches with planters and gates
As well as garden arches with gates that need to be secured into the ground with foundations, we also offer freestanding garden arches with planters and gates. These models get their stability not from concrete foundations but from the garden planters that stand either side of the arch. Each of the two heavy Versailles planters comes with two small metal plates that need to be screwed into the ground from above, which you can do by reaching down through the planters themselves. Once the structure is fully assembled, these metal plates are barely visible, but they ensure that the structure is fully secure and stable, which in turn will allow the gate to open, close and lock as it is supposed to. So all you need to do to install one of these models is position the garden arch with gate where you want it to stand and screw the metal plates into the ground – and you’re done!
Different designs and planting tips for a metal garden arch with gate
We have many different styles of rose arch with gate, all of which are available to buy online using our straightforward online shopping facility. The Brighton Garden Arch with Gate is a fantastic choice if you want to create a magical floral entranceway to your garden or other outdoor space. This striking structure has a gothic-style arch, which adds to its already elegant design. When powder coated in black, the arch trellis contrasts fantastically with deep red roses. In summer, when the rose arch is covered in blossom, it’s so magical and romantic that it looks like something out of a fairy tale. And then there’s the Portofino Garden Arch with Gate, which is just as beautiful as the Brighton Garden Arch but totally different in design. Its most striking feature is its perfectly round arch. The Portofino Garden Arch with Gate looks especially elegant when bedecked with cream-coloured roses. The Claire Austin climbing roses will quickly scale the arch trellis and turn the entire structure into a real sight to behold in next to no time. This stylish metal garden arch will add a touch of luxury and exclusivity to both formal and informal gardens. Different again is the Kiftsgate Garden Arch with Gate and High Fence. It can be used as part of the boundary around your property, where it will catch the eye of anyone who passes by. Its delicate, curved lines make it an impressive garden structure in and of itself, but when covered in flowers, such as a Clematis Romantika, it becomes a truly breathtaking sight.
Choosing the right colour for your metal arch with gate
It’s not just the design of the rose arch and your choice of flowers that influences the overall look of your garden arch with gate – the colour of the structure itself also plays a big part. Black and green are classic choices for garden arches, wall trellises and other garden decorations, but they are not the only options. For example, in the gardens of an historic villa, a white rose arch with gate can look extremely elegant. If your property has more of a wild and romantic look about it, then a rust-coloured garden arch and gate can fit in brilliantly. At the other end of the spectrum, a trellis arch with gate painted in metallic grey has a more austere and almost cool feel, which can work fantastically in a more modern garden.

If you aren’t sure which garden arch design would work best in your garden, we would be happy to advise you. Just send us a photo of your property and we’ll help you to decide.
