Arbors, trellises, pergolasTraditional Landscape, San Francisco

The arbor over the swing is intended to shade the sitting area in this hot yard as the sun comes from the left side of the swing. Evergreen Pandorea vines eventually grew over the top. The style mimicked that of the already existing pergola on the deck. The swing gives the family a resting place to watch people practicing on the putting green.

    Very Beautiful! What is the purple plant growing up the trellis?

    Thanks for the question. The vine on the trellis is a Clematis. It gets cut back in winter and then comes back in the spring. That's why I usually plant it along with another evergreen vine that can spread over the top and remain all year long like the Pandorea jasminoides Alba vine on the other side.

    The dimensions are about 6’ x 10’ and 8’ tall. I’m glad you like it and I hope you have many hours of fun & relaxation in your new swing!

    If I remember correctly, the attachment came with the swing. It could have been an optional piece we bought.

A pergola with swing incorporated somewhere -don't like this traditional style or necessarily an entirely separate element but would like to have a coupe swing options
