Do you need to concrete in a garden arch?

While not always necessary, if your garden has particularly soft ground or is exposed to strong winds, then setting your garden arch or arbour in a fast-setting concrete will ensure that it doesn't budge - especially when made from wood or a particularly large style. Metal arches, however, are usually lightweight enough to be sunk deeply and securely into soft ground without the need for setting in concrete.

Do I need planning permission for a garden arch?

As long as you leave a sufficient gap between your garden arch and any boundaries, you do not need planning permission for a garden arch or canopy as they are considered to be garden buildings, much like a garden shed or greenhouse. A garden building should also be less than 2.5 metres in height - at Homebase all of our arches and arbours meet these requirements.

Where is the best place to put an arch in the garden?

Before considering where to position a garden arch or arbour, first think about its purpose. Is it for shade, a frame for climbing plants, or simply decorative? If placing your arbour over a dining area or garden furniture set, ensure that it casts shade over the right area during the hottest part of the day. Garden arches look fantastic over a pathway or against a wall - consider adding a bench nearby too so that you can enjoy your handiwork!
