Generally speaking, the garden arch mainly uses iron and anti-corrosion wood these two materials, but there is also stainless steel to do the arch and brick arch. Garden arches are generally more than 7ft in height, ranging from 2.6ft to 5ft in width. There are also more than 5ft, but the height should be increased, otherwise, the height-to-width ratio is a bit inconsistent, thus affecting the effect.

Another popular way to install the arch is to install it in the middle of two raised garden beds. This has the advantage of not only being aesthetically pleasing but also allowing enough space for vine plants to grow, thus avoiding entanglement with other types of plants.

Edible garden

Edible gardens have both aesthetic and edible value and are well worth promoting. The main thing is that you can provide your family with healthy, organic ingredients, while still getting the fun and satisfaction of growing and harvesting. An edible garden full of fruits and vegetable plants will give you a lot of satisfaction when it's all done, and gathering everything you need for your meals in your garden is priceless!

There are several types of edible gardens to choose from, each with its unique benefits and drawbacks. Traditional in-ground gardens require the most space and labor, but they offer the most flexibility in terms of what you can grow.

Raised garden beds are a great option for those with limited space or poor soil quality, as they can be placed on any flat surface and filled with soil or soilless media. Mini greenhouses are great for small spaces and can be planted on balconies, patios, or even indoors. Vertical gardens are a space-saving option that allows you to grow a large number of plants in a small area.

Tips on edible gardens: In a plant growth system, plant communities are more conducive to growth than single plants. Therefore, by taking into account the growth habits of different plants during the planning of an edible garden, a diverse fruit, vegetable, and flower garden can be constructed.

Not only can they be made to grow mutually, but they can also form a healthy, abundant garden system. For example, lettuce and tomatoes or eggplant can be planted together, and the smell of chives can prevent roses from being eaten by beetles.
