Outdoor garden structures can provide you with seating, shade and even a bit of shelter from the rain, depending on which type you choose. Although these structures serve a practical purpose, they’re available in a wide range of decorative styles and designs that can enhance your garden’s appearance. How do you know which type would work best for your property? Keep the following in mind when deciding on an outdoor garden structure.

Arbor 

Arbors act as entrances between different garden areas or entrances to your garden from your yard. These structures typically have an arch at the top and trellis walls that vines can grow on. While they have a relatively simple design compared to other garden structures, you can make them more elaborate with an intricate design, flowering vines or seating areas. In fact, you can set up a vertical garden with trumpet vines or other vines using your arbor. 

An arbor is an ideal option if you just want to set up a small structure with seating or if you want to highlight entrances to your garden or to different garden areas. 

Gazebo

Gazebos offer more space and shelter than arbors. Since they’re larger, these structures work well in between garden areas if enough room is available. They can also be placed closer to the edge of your garden or just outside of it, so that you still have a good view of your flowers, plants and trees. 

A gazebo typically has a roof, a floor, open sides and seating in a polygon or rounded shape. You can have built-in benches placed along the inner sides of your gazebo, or place your own luxurious chairs inside it for seating. Gazebos are a good option if you need a structure that holds more people and provides some shelter from rain overhead. 

Pergola 

Pergolas are outdoor garden structures that can be freestanding or built onto the side of your home, depending on the layout of your yard. These structures don’t have a roof, but they do have a series of beams that provide shade. Pergolas are known for having ornamental designs or cuts on the roof beams and on the columns that hold these structures in place. You can also add grapevines or other plants to the beams for decorative purposes and to add more shade.

With a larger pergola, you can add a table and chairs for dining, or have a porch swing and other seating installed. Pergolas are suitable options when you want a spacious and more open structure that still offers shade.

Do you have an old garden shed in your yard that's outlived its original purpose? Perhaps your gardening tools and supplies have moved on to a new shed or been relocated to a convenient spot in the corner of your garage. If so, you may be considering tearing down your old shed. After all, these structures can harbor rodents and become safety hazards as well as detract from the overall aesthetic of your outdoor living space — even the most well-kept yard and garden space won't provide good curb appeal if a dilapidated garden shed is a part of the picture. Here's how you can take yours from sloppy to sensational in just one weekend. 

First Things First

The first thing you need to do is walk around the outside of the structure to check for peeling paint, cracked windows and any other cosmetic issues that need attention. After that, enter the inside to ensure that it's stable and level so that you can fix any structural issues such as loose floorboards. Remove any residual gardening tools and supplies and sweep the place clean. You may have to get out the shop vac if debris has been allowed to accumulate for a long period of time. 

Repair and Restore 

The next step is to repair anything that needs it. Most old garden sheds are made from pretty sturdy stuff that holds up well, but the roof and the steps are likely to need some attention if the structure has been neglected for several years, so you might have to replace a few shingles and shore up the steps. Make it look new again with paint or siding, and add decorative elements like window boxes brimming with flowering plants. If you're going to use it as a backyard getaway or playhouse, provide carpeting, wall art and furnishings. Let your imagination lead the way, but be sure to keep the end result in line with the design of the rest of your home. 

Add Landscaping 

Add a finishing touch to your garden shed renovation project by installing foundation landscaping. Simply dig a trench around the structure, plant your plants, fill it in, and cover with an attractive mulching material such as colored pebbles or oyster shells. For old-school cottage garden charm, plant climbing roses or clematis. If your yard is more of a formal affair, choose something classic like boxwood.  To add balance and extend the space, consider adding a small patio with potted plants and a comfortable seating area. 

Once you finish giving your garden shed its makeover, don't forget to pour yourself a refreshing beverage to enjoy while you admire the results of your hard work.
