Garden Structures Buying Guide

Garden structures are the final outdoor flourishes, the perfect companions to plants and flowers, an additional layer of liveliness and life to your yard. Which one -- or ones -- you choose to include in your yard depends in large part on your needs and garden desires.

Types of Structures

Types of Structures

Small yard or expansive landscape, there's a place (and probably a need) for a garden structure, as well as a style that matches the combination of plants you've chosen. Some are purely decorative, designed to accent the architecture of either the landscape or the yard. Others are decorative and practical, supplying a place for climbing plants to bloom or garden visitors to relax. Review the focus and features of these garden structures -- arbors, garden sheds, gazebos, greenhouses, pergolas, trellises, raised-garden kits, sheds, and water garden and pond kits -- as you make a selection that's perfect for you.

Arbors

Arbors are often used to mark a passage from one section of a garden to another, such as from front yard to backyard. An arbor structure typically has two sides that are joined together overhead; the roof may be curved, have right angles, or include a mixture of shapes.

Garden Sheds

While their primary focus is storage for tools, containers, and other outdoor implements, garden sheds typically also have an area for working, relaxing, or both. Some garden sheds may also have greenhouselike space that allows them to be used during colder months.

Unlike gazebos, pergolas are typically open on the sides and often attached to a home or integrated with a deck. Some pergolas are completely open on the sides, while others may have open framework that offers some separation from the rest of the yard.

Water Gardens and Pond Kits

Water gardens and ponds are also garden elements that work in a variety of outdoor spaces; water gardens and pond kits come in a range of sizes. Most kits provide all the items needed to construct the water feature.

Product Features

Product Features

Garden structures such as trellises and arbors may look fairly simple, but there are complexities to consider in even the smallest items. For example, structures must accommodate plants and people, so a trellis that works for a small plant may not be able to support a full-grown vine. A pergola sized for two may outgrow its usefulness if your family expands in size. So before you invest in a garden structure, consider several product features, including size, construction, and seasonal durability. Here's a short overview.

Size

Thoroughly review the proposed size of your garden structure in relation to the size of your yard. Proportion is key: A large shed may dominate a small space, possibly to the detriment of other focal points in your landscape.

Construction

If you're planning to purchase a garden-structure kit, thoroughly review the construction requirements, particularly if you are a novice DIYer. If you're building it yourself, ensure you have the skills, tools, and space to do so.

Style

A contemporary-minded garden shed will feel out of place in a cottage garden; a traditional arbor won't quite match the aesthetics of an Arts and Crafts bungalow. Choose a style for your garden structure that complements both your plants and your home.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

So you've decided to purchase a garden shed, a water garden, an arbor, a trellis, or another garden structure. Great -- but what final purchase considerations are important to put into the mix? What's noteworthy besides size, style, and construction? As it turns out, several very important buying points are the final items that any homeowner or outdoor enthusiast should review. Those include maintenance and seasonal durability. Here's a quick overview to get you started.

Maintenance

Any garden structure will have some maintenance requirements; the extent of those will determine what types of plants you're able to grow as well as the time commitment you'll need to make on a regular basis.

Seasonal Durability

Every climate is different and has different extremes in terms of precipitation and temperatures. The garden structure you choose should be able to withstand your area; if not, it should be easy to move and store.
