Often times when creating a stunning garden, different heights and textures are introduced to enhance the natural beauty while adding function. There are many different structures that can accomplish the task. Garden structures include: pergolas, gates, fences, arbors, and trellises. Most of the time these structures are made from wood but there is an alternative to wood, iron. When treated properly, iron garden structures can last for generations and add an intrinsic beauty to any garden. Iron adds a contrasting texture, natural beauty and durability that wood does not. Of course, we are biased because we at Noble Forge love metal. Perhaps you love metal too and would love to love your garden. You might consider adding custom iron pieces to anchor the design idea of your dreams.
“Can you make a custom iron trellis?” A customer came to us looking to add some height and structure to their backyard in the form of a rose garden trellis. The iron trellis would need to be beautiful and functional, allowing roses to grow up the trellis distracting from a large white brick fireplace found in the back of the house. The customer also wanted the piece to have contrasting colors enhance the detail of the piece. We designed a custom garden trellis that could be planted in the ground and allows the roses planted in the front to grow up the trellis.
Not long after, a friend of the first customer saw the garden trellis Noble Forge had built wanted a similar design for their house. However, they wanted it with a base to be placed on the patio with potted plants nearby, more a custom metal sculpture than a trellis. One of the many benefits to having a custom built garden structure is that you can make modifications to the design to meet your particular needs. Base, no base, color, height, etc. can all be changed for you. That’s what custom built and handmade is all about. Custom iron structures in your garden might be the exact thing you have been looking for to complete that vision. If you have been searching for an alternative to wood and all the maintenance associated with wood, consider iron. Those living in a hot, dry climate, or wet, moist environment know that wood tends to fall apart quickly, or is in constant need of repair. Iron, when treated properly, does not require a lot of maintenance to stay looking beautiful for an extended period of timel. It gives a whole new meaning to garden art and garden structures when you consider custom iron works.
Below are additional photos of the two garden trellises with the detail of the metal work as well as the different colors of the metal. Noble Forge is ready to design and build your custom garden structure in iron.
