Top 5 Garden Arbours

Impressive garden features in their own right, arbours aren’t simply offering somewhere to sit. At Buy Sheds Direct, we have a wide range of different styles, both traditional and modern in design, to complement any outdoor space. Many of our garden arbours incorporate trellis too, perfect for supporting climbing plants. An attractive wooden arbour adorned with roses, wisteria, jasmine, or clematis really is a sight to behold.

To help you find your perfect arbour, we’ve compiled a list of our 5 favourites to help you. Have a look below or view our full range of arbours here.

1) 5x3 Shire Rose Arbour

First on our list is the Shire Rose Arbour. A simple, classically-styled arbour, the Shire Rose is ideally suited to traditional country gardens. Imagine yourself comfortably seated, enjoying a spot of afternoon tea, surrounded by a backdrop of gorgeous roses. Could there be anything more quintessentially British? I think not.

Constructed from superior tongue and groove timber, the Shire Rose isn’t just a pretty face; it’s a robust, sturdy garden structure built to last. Low maintenance too, all that’s required is a simple coat of treatment to guarantee against rot and fungal decay for an impressive 10 years; what’s not to love?

2) 5x2 Forest Infinity Arbour Seat

As a contrast to the Shire Rose, the Forest Infinity Arbour is more contemporary, perfectly complementing modern garden design Its unique design plays with persepective and creates a frame for your garden, drawing the eye beyond the arbour.

Perhaps even more impressive is the Infinity Arbour's durability. The timber has been pressure treated, and is guaranteed for 15 years against both rot and fungal decay, with no need for any maintenance – how impressive is that? There's even an Infinity Arch to consider too.


3) The Forest Venetian Corner Arbour Seat 

Another impressive design, the Forest Venetian Corner Arbour features a beautiful Venetian-style slatted roof, which allows the sun to shine through, yet protects you from unexpected summer showers, all whilst effortlessly reminding you of happy times spent on holiday with family and friends.
