There are as many different ways to design a garden arbor or pergola as there are uses for the structures; the choices are almost endless. By taking into consideration the type of material that best meets your needs and the purpose, if any, that the structure will serve, you will come up with a design that compliments your yard beautifully. Remember, an arbor or pergola is a large and important element in your landscape design. Take the time to choose a unit that's right for you, and you will be rewarded with a beautiful structure that will grace your garden for years to come.
When I worked as a patrol officer I investigated hundreds of residential burglaries and on some occasions I chased burglars across yards, through alleys, and over and under fences. The fences that fleeing burglars had the most difficulty getting over were flimsy chicken-wire type fences. Burglars (and pursuing cops) could not run through these fences and if they were too high to leap over, you had to detour and run around them as there was usually nothing to grab hold of to pull yourself over.
While the grass might be greener on the other side of the fence, you don't want that to be your grass over there! Nor do you want to find out after all the construction is done, your fence is not yours at all, but on someone else's property.
Before a guest even sets foot through the front door of your home, he or she will, first, be welcomed by your fence or gate. Needless to say, this is where they will get the first impression of your home. Trust me, the design of the fence can be a basis enough for them to consider your home a master piece or the worst house in the neighborhood. And of course, you wouldn't want them to have the latter of the two as first impression, would you?
