SizeThe size of your arbour depends on how you plan to use it, though use these rough dimensions as a general guide:Height: Most arbors are 2.1 to 2.4 metres tall – you’ll need to allow enough headroom for a grown adult to walk under it, plus extra room if you’re introducing climbing plants.Width: The width can vary, from 900 centimetres to 1.2 metres for an arbour over a gate, a bit less to show off a garden fountain, and up to three metres or more to stretch along a wall or create a focal point in a space. If you’re opting for a longer arbour, consider a row of connected matching designs to keep the structure stable, or add a few supports for every metre of length.Depth: Most arbours are fairly shallow, perhaps the depth of a lattice panel, but you can adapt to fit your needs. A deeper arbour will allow you to add a seat or seats, provide the feel of a true passageway or cover a garden path or specimen plant.

The size of your arbor depends on how you plan to use it. Height: Most arbors are 7 to 8 feet tall. Width: The width can vary, from 3 to 4 feet for over a gate, a bit less to show off a garden fountain, and up to 10 feet or more to stretch along a wall or create a focal point in a space. If you’re opting for a longer arbor, consider a row of connected arbors to keep the structure stable, or add supports every few feet. Depth: Most arbors are fairly shallow, perhaps the depth of a lattice panel, but you can adapt to fit your needs. A deeper arbor will allow you to add a seat or seats, provide the feel of a true passageway or cover a garden path or specimen plant.

We really like this open arbor, we're just not sure there's a good place for it in our yard...
