For a dash of elegance in any outdoor space, consider shopping for grapevine arbors. The grapevine provides the perfect design element to set the mood. Traditionally used as not only a growing wall for the climbing grapevine, but as a romantic gate like structure, you can use a strategically placed grapevine arbor for nearly any outdoor space, whether or not you even plan on cultivating a grapevine. Many grapevine arbors are quite large, and form hallway-like corridors on large properties or vineyards. If you have a smaller space, you can still achieve the glorious look that an arbor can provide -- just buy a smaller one. You can still encourage vine growth on the arbor from a variety of climbing species.
The traditional grapevine arbor is made of a rustic -- often untreated -- wood. But don't let tradition hold you back. You can find grapevine arbors in a multitude of different wood types and various other materials. Usually formed into an upside down "U" shape, many people use their arbors as a type of decorative gate, so many people use a metal material, to mimic a gate-like look. The material used can be of varying thicknesses, and many arbors contain a third wall of sorts, to form a kind of mini gazebo. Many arbors are available painted, as well. If you live in a particularly rainy or moist climate, you might want to consider treating your arbor with a weather sealant, but there arbors that come with sealant pre-applied.
Although many people think of the aforementioned "U" shape when they think about arbors, another popular shape is the basic square, or rectangle. Still functional as a vine arbor, the square shape gives a more angular look to contrast with a garden.
If you would like to place a grapevine arbor on your land, consider the aforementioned points before you buy one.
