The benefits of your own arbor are many. What could be more romantic than sitting under a grape arbor sipping the fruits of your own labor? Building a sturdy arbor is not difficult as you should easily be able to construct one that can stand up to strong winds. If you cover in a grape vine, make sure you plant grapes that are suitable for your climate.
To accent an arbor in your yard try building a retaining wall on either side and have some nice ground cover or perennials. You do not want the walls to be too high, but high enough to sit on if you wanted to. Also have an nice bench made of rock is good to have as it will blend in with the yard and it will last for a really long time.
Arbors provide a nice look and feel to any yard, garden or park and there are a lot of different varieties to choose from.
