Old-timers of country estates have long beenPositively decided for themselves whether it is necessary to add one more to the existing buildings - an arbor - and thereby make their stay in the fresh air even more attractive and comfortable. They willingly share photos of their arbors on forums and social networks, give practical advice on construction and arrangement.
A lot of factors affect what the arbor will be based on the temporary criterion of presence on the site: stationary (arbor-barbecue) and demountable.
Arbor - a light architectural structure forCreation of a certain natural and cultural environment. It should correspond to its size and style of all buildings. Its direct purpose is to protect it from rain and heat, to serve as a pleasant resting place, for romantic meetings, for family gatherings, for creative activities in the intervals between household chores. But for whatever purpose the construction is planned, its success will be determined by how harmoniously the construction will fit into the surrounding landscape, whether it will constitute a compositional unity with the house, fence, alleys, bridges, benches, pond and flower beds - all attributes of a cozy and beautiful landscape Design.
Recently, to some types of arborsInstead of "light construction", the definition "monumental" is quite applicable. And in this case it is not a place for contemplation and solitude, but, conversely, the reception of a large company.
There are many classifications of stylesArbors, which in one way or another are associated with artistic trends in architecture and design. One of the generally accepted is the linking of the appearance of the structure with its geographical origin:
- Classic (it respects the strict proportions and forms of Antiquity, Renaissance and Classicism)
- Eastern (Moorish, Egyptian, Persian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese)
- English (often called Victorian, with an abundance of grids and climbing plants)
- Scandinavian (absolute integration into the surrounding nature, massive stone walls and a large number of wooden parts)
- Popular rustic style (with thatched orReed (rough construction of "clumsy" work), Italian (the abundance of grids, pottery and flowers - pergola, belvedere), as well as modern style (or fusion, combining styles by the will of fantasy and taste of the owners).
The location on the site is determined, a photo is selectedFrom the collection presented or embodied by hand the coveted image on paper. Now it's time to start choosing materials, depending on which one of the following variants of arbors will be erected: stone, wooden, forged, glass (pavilion) or from innovative materials (polycarbonate).

The gazebos are structurally different in terms of the presence (or absence) of solid walls:
- Open - a canopy on the supports and designed to relax in the warm season.
- Closed - a cross between a gazebo and a summer house, from the surrounding space are separated from all sides by walls and doors, you can relax almost throughout the year.
- Semi-closed - are surrounded by three closed sides and have an open part of the entrance facade. They can be found from early spring to late autumn.
