Arbors & Pergolas
Gazebos & Barns

At right: Custom designs for pergolas and arbors from a variety of projects; two gazebos and an example of a small storage barn for gardening tools and equipment. More structures can be seen on other project pages in the portfolio.

True of all architectural features in the garden - arbors, pergolas, fences, gates, storage buildings - is that they are designed to blend with the architecture of the residence and the character of the garden and site.

Pergolas and arbors can serve a variety of purposes. They may be used to deliniate areas in the garden, or become the focal point at the end of a vista, provide a shady place to walk or sit in the garden and at pool side. They provide a structure for climbing woody or flowering vines. Their size and scale, whether painted or not, make them an important design element in any landscape. They can be brick, stone, stucco, fiberglas, non-rotting wood, and now also vinyl, and columns can sit directly on the ground or be raised on pillars.
