Garden Arbor

A well-placed arbor is your garden's ultimate multitasker: It can serve as an entryway to an outdoor spot; frame a focal point, like a flowering shrub or garden shed; and, of course, take your beloved climbers to new heights. The go-to material for this project is rot-resistant cedar, though you can also make it from treated lumber. Whether left unfinished or given a coat of paint, you'll love how this piece adds personality to your outdoor space.
