How To Build A Garden Arch
This rough-sawn timber arch has just six parts and can be built in a day using a drill, circular saw and jigsaw.
Simple but versatile, it has many landscape uses, including as a gateway in a fence, an opening in a hedge or
a frame for a paved walkway.
Made of treated pine, the posts are sunk in the ground using quick-set concrete and the timber is finished with a penetrating oil, to deepen the natural pine colour and protect it from weathering.
With the treated pine, fasteners, timber oil and concrete, the total cost for the project comes to about $400.
