5 Reasons to Add an Arbor to Your Backyard
Posted September 14, 2021 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
Installing an arbor in your yard probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about landscaping improvements. Many think about fences or desks first; however, arbors have a wide range of benefits for homeowners. At Sierra Structures, we know the impact that an arbor can have on a backyard and want everyone to be able to enjoy their outdoor space to the fullest.
Here are five reasons why you should consider adding an arbor:
Shade: Having an arbor can bring shade to an area. With the brutal, North Carolina heat upwards of 90 degrees, an arbor might be exactly what your backyard needs to stay cool. An arbor is a great solution for these hot days since owners can still sit outside and take in the fresh air but stay in the shade while doing so.
Entrances: An arbor can serve as an entrance to a garden, or any other area in your space. By highlighting the entrance, it still lets others see into your garden since it is not fully covered but offers a beautiful aesthetic too.
Structure for plants: Trailing plants love something to grip onto when growing, and arbors are a great spot for that. Having lush plants and greenery trail up and down the wooded structure will elevate the look of your space for visitors.
Accent: Is there a nice area in your yard that you want to highlight and bring attention to? Like a small pond or colorful flowerbed? An arbor is the perfect way to do this! Having an arbor draws the eye over and puts attention on the best features of your space.
Increase value: Adding an arbor to your home not only adds something beautiful to look at but it also adds value. When looking to sell or refinance your home in the future, an arbor can help to increase the value.
