What Houzz contributors are saying:
Support for plantsNo matter what other purpose your arbour serves, adapt the time-honoured tradition of using it as a way to highlight your prized climbing plants. Vines, roses, climbing perennials and shrubs all appreciate the chance to stretch out toward the sun.Grapes have long been used as a topper on arbours, but consider branching out with other fruits, such as passionfruit (as long as your arbor is sturdy). You can also use an arbour as a support for vegetables, such as tomatoes or pole beans. Think about being able to pluck a ripe tomato every time you enter your garden!
