SHADESCAPE YOUR LANDSCAPE™
Create an Invitation & Accentuate your Backyard with ShadeScape® Arbors & Trellises
Arbor and Trellis structures can accent your backyard living space. In some ways arbors can appear similar to pergolas, providing shade, and shelter – and shade shelters can be trellised. Even though there are some common design features between some outdoor living shelters, nothing compares to the vast artistic license arbors or trellises provide in the orchestrating of landscape design. From subtlety, separate space to bold boundaries arbors and trellises are offered an integral part of a building and directing throughout the scenery.
Arbors and Trellises are the Poetic License to ShadeScape® for a Pristine Landscape Design.
The unique shapes and lines of well-planned arbors and trellises offer opportunities to beautifully frame a landscape to guide views, direct traffic, provide entertainment, and cradle with nesting areas. In our experience, they are often used in conjunction with a pergola, gazebo, or pavilion to accent a walkway, hidden corner, or provide shade for a swing or bench.
Arbors are a great way to provide a small amount of shade to a dedicated area or walkway. Our heavy-duty Arbors and Trellises utilize our dovetail joint method for superior strength and minimum maintenance.
Shade has always been a vital need to living things for rest and rejuvenation. With an arbor/trellis timber frame structure from Western Timber Frame™, the structure is a durable permanent outdoor shade structure built to last for centuries.
In ancient times an arbor was an orchard or a natural kind of latticework formed or covered with vines or branches for a shaded retreat. Whereas a trellis is a lattice framework that is formed by crossing laths or thin strips diagonally or in a zigzagged style.
Lattices were also used ornamentally for covered windows, gates, doors, form a wall, support climbing vine and roses, shade garden areas and more.
Today, modern Arbors and Trellises have become extremely popular in prominent residential and commercial areas for its low cost in meeting a variety of landscaping needs, spanning from a quaint homespun cottage appeal to a formal illustrious estate.

Vertical Gardening & Landscape Design
Western Timber Frame™ garden arbors and trellises add a stunningly inviting feel to a garden and are also very practical to accentuate with hanging baskets, pots or growing boxes. They help facilitate beautifully inviting backyard living throughout the year.
Natural timber is a fantastic substrate for plants, compared to metal arbors or latticeworks, which can burn and freeze growing plants. A trellis can add a new dimension to unique climbing vines, vegetables or vineyards as well as garden flowers. They are excellent for vertical gardening to keep vegetables and flowers off of the ground, or even to grow a vegetable garden in a limited space, or a nook in your backyard.

Arbors serve as entryways, gateways, and pathway coverings, while trellises are a natural element for walls, boundaries, and enclosures. From a very small or narrow area to a large expansive surrounding, arbors and trellises help create the perfect landscape.

|“The guys showed incredible attention to detail. They left my yard looking fantastic and kept the work area clear so that my 3-year-old and I could safely watch the whole process. It was so cool!

The birth of Arbor Day began on the flat desolate plains of Nebraska. J. Sterling Morton and his wife, Caroline, purchased 160 acres in Nebraska City before Nebraska was even a state. A journalist by trade, Morton established the state’s first newspaper – Nebraska City News.
Possessing an enthusiastic love for nature, Morton used his paper to encourage the ecology and forestation of Nebraska and proposed a day to plant and appreciate trees. Originally, “Sylvan Day” was suggested but Morton, however, felt strongly that it should be in recognition of all wooded shrubs and trees. “Arbor” literally means a tree, orchard, or shade covering.
Because of Morton’s efforts, America’s schoolchildren began to participate and in 1885 Arbor Day was established as an official Nebraska state holiday. It was estimated that well over one million trees were sown in the soil of Nebraska on that first Arbor Day. Within 20 years, every state except Delaware acknowledged an Arbor Day.
“Each generation takes the earth as trustees.” — J. Sterling Morton
