Perhaps your garden is like mine and has no fence. Consider adding an arbor at its entrance to establish a unique sense of place. While most of your friends will plant the predictable ivy or clematis on theirs, you have the opportunity to think outside the box to create a sense of mystery. My simple arbor is planted not with a vine but with a weeping bald cypress (Taxodium distichum ‘Cascade Falls’, USDA zones 4 to 9). Many of its pliable, draping branches are intentionally left intact so the visitor has to physically part them to enter the space. They recall strands of beads that hung from door frames in the 1960s. Because the visitor must interact with the branches to gain access to the garden, a strong initial impression is created. Additionally, the arbor is well shaded by the cypress, creating a sense of journey by sending the visitor from darkness into light.

Arbors add mystery by enticing the visitor. Instead of a bulky arbor marking the entrance to your garden or garden room, consider a looser arbor covered with a lacy or semitransparent plant. This Cascade Falls bald cypress (Taxodium distichum ‘Cascade Falls’, USDA zones 4 to 9; find your zone) has fern-like foliage on pliable weeping branches. I enjoy parting the branches while walking through; they remind me of the strings of beads that hung from door frames in the 1960s and ’70s. The ability to conjure rich mental images is a mark of good garden design.
