Hi Aine.Any good Garden Centre should have Brochures on what your looking for.but be prepared for the shock of all shocks when you inquire the price.If on the other hand your handy with your hands and like to be creative get a Book called "Woodwork for the Garden" by Alan & Gill Bridgewater published by "New Holland Publishers" there you will find 16 easy-to-build projects with very simple step by step Instructions including what your looking for.If you dont have the flaire for DIY perhaps a friend or neighbour could help out.Easons or any good Book Shop will be able to get it for you.

Dave.

i agree with dave,i bought a couple of metal ones and they rusted,fell apart,wobbled in the wind and didnt take the weight of my climbing roses,my hubby made me a couple to take their place and they look so much better and was cheap to do,if he hadnt i would have asked a freind to make it for me,no plans,pics if i can manage to post them,

Thats the true meaning of DIY,its natural looking and more in keeping with nature instead of the Factory made ones which do nothing for me,but them maybe I am Biased as I am Blessed with the Hands to do these projects,and Aine I'd love you to see the Photo on the front Cover of that Book it would be ideal for you and the Baby on long hot Summer Evenings.in fact why not look it up on your Computer it will show you the Picture.Best of luck with the Birth. Dave.

thats a really nice arch Sal, i agree the homemade ones are so much better than the shop bought ones - they have a rustic look that i like. I dont have the space here for one, but in time!!
