Metal Round-Top Garden Arch featuring a perfect semi-circle

The wider an arch, the higher it will have to be in order to maintain its proportions. Perfected by the Romans and used for a variety of purposes, semi-circular arches were the dominant technology in arch construction up to Romanesque era. Since then they have featured recurrently over the centuries in the world of garden design – as garden gates, wall openings, formal clipped hedges or plant climbing frames.

Climbing roses, with their beautiful blooms, numerous shapes and colours, and fragrance at nose level, are the ideal partner for a wrought-iron garden arch. As many gardens become smaller in area, it makes sense to exploit the third dimension. Climbing roses can ascend walls and fences, columns and obelisks, pergolas and arches. Playfully enveloping sharp angles in their flowering foliage, they offer workable solutions for country and cottage gardens. In Feng Shui garden design, too, ramblers and garden arches can be used to create greater harmony. And if, for any reason, you prefer not to use roses, there is a huge choice of other climbers – clematis, sweet pea, morning glory and many more – with the help of which you can make your garden arch a sensational focal point in your garden.
