Arches, Screens and Gates.

Garden pergola in Norwich Norfolk, garden gate Norwich Norfolk.

Top left - a group of Tudor style arches arranged in a square to make a cloistered wall in a courtyard at the English Country Garden. Seen here in the evening sun festooned with scented roses and evergreen Jasmine.
Below left - on the opposite side of the house at The English Country Garden we used the same style of arch to span this wide terrace.
Right - the heavy arch in the Garden of 5 Arches in west London made from solid oak 20cm square posts and cross beam.

Here in this garden you can see the natural timber is offset by the use of slate. The pergola and arches form a great retreat amidst the shelter of the pines whilst the pergola itself captures the early morning light perfectly!

These arches were an integral part of the deck at the Exotic Woodland In The City where the deck lead out from the house almost at 1st floor level. It was supported on heavy timbers, so we continued the posts up above the deck height and put cross beams on them to make this series of 3 arches. The fact that they are part of one structure and of a repeated design in the same colour gives them a high impact and continuity. They frame all of the views to the garden and looking from the garden they make the transition from exotic plants, to exotic architecture around the house, draped in climbing scented plants. Their black colour is echoed in the Phyllostachys nigra - black bamboo planted next to them.

This pergola provides shade and comfort amidst the summer months and can also serve as a great support for creeping plants. They help frame views within the garden and provide destinations for our clients to travel to. The use of timber also provides a strong architectural presence within this design which helps alleviate the otherwise level garden.

This gothic style gate was handcrafted. The garden in which this was used can be found on our portfolio page; An English Town Garden.

Here in this artist’s representation of one of our pergola designs you can see how the inclusion of an architectural feature immediately brings something new to the immediate environment. When constructed, our client will have a garden feature that is ideal for entertaining.

By utilizing the space available, there is enough room to accommodate and entertain many guests; both friends and family. The hard landscaping materials provide a surface area that is easy to maintain and can be enjoyed throughout the year.
