With warmer weather upon us; what better time to think about sprucing up your garden? Make the most of the weekend and get ready for summer by adding instant appeal to your garden with a quality timber garden arch.

Whether you’re a gardening novice or a DIY expert, We supply a wide range of garden arches in simple kit form. Here, we show you how to create a charming focal point in four easy steps with the Rustic Rose Arch:

Step 1

Lay the components onto the ground, checking and familiarising yourself with the pieces.

Step 2

Build the roof section by standing the two short sections onto their sides. Nail the mitred ends together with the nails, producing a ‘V’ shaped section.

Step 3

Still on the floor, position the two uprights into place. The distance apart can be between 910mm (3’) and 1.36m (4’6), measured by the distance between the second rails in on either side of the ‘V’ section. Nail the ‘V’ section to the uprights.

Step 4

Finally, stand the Rose Arch upright and move into position. Once the desired position has been located the posts can be fixed directly into the ground, although it is recommended that Fencefast Easy-Fit spikes are used to provide a secure footing for the arch, holding it upright and stable even in the most treacherous of weather conditions.

For a contemporary alternative to more traditional style arches, the striking 21st-century design of the Premier Pergola Arch combines sleek planed uprights with the natural qualities and premium quality timber rafters to form a fusion of architectural lines that will add urban appeal to any garden.
