Round topped Garden Arch inspired by the Divine
The proportions of the Portofino Garden Arch are based on the Romanesque architecture of the early Middle Ages, which draws in turn on the inspiration of classical Rome. The hallmark of the style is a faultless round arch – a shape which recurs in the windows and portals of the age, in the rows of arches in the naves of our medieval churches, in cloisters, galleries and friezes. It is the same captivating round form that we see in the great aqueducts of the Roman Empire, in the Colosseum in Rome or – more recently – in Napoleon’s magnificent Arc de Triomphe in the heart of Paris. Our exclusive, perfectly-crafted Portofino Garden Arch is a worthy representative of this venerable tradition.
Freestanding Arch with two planter boxes for those glorious Annuals
For annuals such as morning glory, sweet pea, cup and saucer vine, nasturtiums, scarlet runners or black-eyed Susan, the freestanding garden arch with two integrated planters will provide plenty of space and nutrients to ensure fast growth. The dense metal diamond latticework within the arch frame offers ideal support for climbers and creepers, even for the vigorous self-clingers which return to charm us year for year.
