Beach Cottage Renovation for Aging in Place

We changed the exterior from dark brown to blue, added shutters, cream colored lattice fences, new stone walkways and gardens, and copper lanterns for a total transformation from the street.

What type of hinge did you use?

I don't know the brand of hinge but it's a heavy one that will prevent the gate from sagging. It also allows you to open a full ninety degrees.

Vinyl or wood?

The entire fence is wood -- wood 6x6 posts and wood lath. It has a nice coat of exterior grade paint on it which might make it look as if it's vinyl.

What type of trees are planted to grow on the arbor?

The vines on the arbor were here when we took over the house and we managed to save them. They're a combination of Cecil Bruner roses and what I call white potato vine. The rose is an old fashioned variety and it is just lovely with clusters of perfect pink blossoms and a beautiful scent. The "potato vine" is extremely prolific and needs to be cut back every couple of months. Together they make a continuously blooming bouquet at the front gate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 7 Great Structures for an Attractive Front Yard
1. Arbors. There is something very charming and quaint about a front-yard arbor. It not only says, "Welcome"; it seems to holler, "Come on in and visit for a while!" Arbors can accent a cottage, but they can also set off a more contemporary house — it's all in the materials. A rose-topped white lattice looks very traditional, while angular steel with clipped evergreen ivy lends a cool, contemporary vibe. The arbor and plant material offer a one-two punch.Tip: Resist the urge to overplant your arbor — check the size of the vine you plan to grow on it and plant accordingly. If you are in love with a more diminutive vine, you may need to plant one on either side of the arbor, but only plant one if it's more aggressive, like a 20-footer. Overplanting your arbor may get you faster coverage, but ultimately you may create maintenance issues or plant health problems, or worse, you may weaken the structural integrity of your arbor.
