When thinking of landscapes we normally think in two dimensions – length and breadth. But there is a third dimension – height. And if used properly, it can add greatly to the beauty and utility of a landscape. At Landscape Pros we look at landscape design from every aspect and, when needed, add vertical elements to increase the appeal and functionality. In other words, we use Pergolas, Arbors and Trellises. From the traditional to the most avant-garde, we create vertical landscape design elements that are far more than mere structures on which vines and creepers grow. These becomes design focal points that add to the landscape and can also function as secluded areas or as screens to hide unwanted views.
Perhaps there is one special aspect of the landscape that you want to focus on. And arbor can be used to frame the vista and give it special significance. The design of the arbor is a critical element in defining the way the scene is viewed. The right framing of a famous painting adds to its appeal and the wrong frame detracts from it. The same applies to arbors and pergolas – one that fits in with the design integrity of the landscape will add to its value and one that is unsuitable will detract from it.
We carry our landscape design expertise forward to the design and construction of arbors and pergolas. We ensure that they fit perfectly into the existing landscape ambience and provide exactly the right focus and framing to make a design feature stand out. We use only the best materials so that our pergolas and arbors last for years with the minimum of maintenance.
Just as arbors and pergolas can highlight an aspect of the landscape, they can also be used to hide things that detract from the appeal. Does some part of the house next door have peeling paint that you want hidden? Do you want to block a nosy neighbor’s view into your garden? An arbor or pergola is the best way to do it. Not only can you protect the integrity of your landscape’s appeal, you can also ensure your privacy.
And this can be done while adding to the beauty of the garden. We can provide you with arbors and trellises that will blend seamlessly into your existing landscape design while serving the functional purpose you need. They will look like elegant design features and no one need ever know that there is another reason for installing them.
Do you want a special place in your garden? A place that is part of the landscape yet stands apart? A place to sit and read, have a nap or entertain a few friends? A place to retreat to when a hot sun would otherwise force you indoors? A pergola serves all these purposes and more.
Landscape Pro’s design skills can create exactly the kind of pergola that you want in a way that allows it to blend into the existing design while simultaneously being an attractive design feature of its own.
Vines and creepers can add immensely to the appeal of a landscape. Using trellises is the best way to achieve this. But the trellis must be both attractive on its own and be suitable for the type of vine that it is intended for. Once again, Landscape Pros can provide you with the right trellis, with the right look, for any landscape application.
