Live arbors

Live arbors in any garden look absolutely amazing! The main feature is that they consist mainly of living plants, occasionally fixed on a special frame. Moreover, the frame itself requires light, thin, but durable, why, and even a thin metal wire is quite suitable for this purpose. Therefore, something like that, conceived design, with your own hands is capable of any person. In short, lively gazebos are the realization of your most unimaginable projects!

Today's gazebos of this type are being built of various forms and concepts, so long as the plants themselves can stay on all of this. And they, in turn, are of three main types: weaving, crawling and clinging. Depending on what you want to see, you also need to choose the right kind of plant or shrub. Another popular option for live arbors is the use of existing plants, for example, tying their crowns together to get a dome, or pre-planting them according to a special scheme.

The easiest option is to choose the finished gazebo you like and repeat its concept. And you will probably be very surprised by the moment that living arbors do not have to be like simple and shaggy bushes of huge sizes. Not at all! With a creative approach, you can organize real labyrinths in the garden, miniature houses “for the gnomes”, huts for children, and even peculiar hanging gardens.

It is enough to use additional elements such as a pergola, trellis or trellis to create amazing landscape compositions in their design. In addition, they often like to build living pavilions in the form of fantastic huge animals: a hairy spider, the mouth of a lion and the like:

And the choice of certain climbing plants for a lively gazebo depends on what you want to see on your site in a year or two. So, if you built a fairly strong and tenacious frame, you can plant annual plants that will please with their violent color in spring, or show patience and plant perennials, caring for them, you will get an arbor of incredible beauty, although after 2-3 years. Or give preference to evergreens, which will allow the gazebo not to lose its shape and attractiveness even in winter. Especially fascinating is the evenings in a lively gazebo, if fixtures were installed in it.

Moreover, it is not necessary that the living arbor should be of any standard form. Even if you are building for the first time, create something immediately impressive, asymmetric, areal, and perhaps even frightening. After all, a lively gazebo is designed to surprise, cause delight. And even a child can tie a pair of bushes at the crown - this is not serious.

Build such a lively arbor so that it becomes a real oasis for the soul! Or even several at once, turning them into a real garden labyrinth with passages, arched passages and benches, which will make a single landscape-architectural ensemble. Do not be afraid to take risks and experiment, because plants are living, malleable material, and if necessary their growth will not be difficult to redirect to the other side, which, for example, cannot be turned with a stone or brick.

Please also note: when buying seedlings for the right plants, consult the seller, because some plants actively grow in the sun, others like shade, and if you change these places, the result may be most unexpected. When creating a fairly complex design, we advise you to contact a professional gardener - he will tell you what you can do and how.
