Rose arches adorn our gardens, are eye-catchers and are also popular as a separating element. We explain how you should set up a rose arch.
Rose arches must be set up stably
A rose arch is often set up as a passage on paths or directly at the entrance. But a rose arch also needs to be neat and above all stable. The reason: On the one hand, the plant itself, which grows naturally over time and becomes heavier, needs support, but on the other hand also because of the weather. Wind tugs at the rose arch and can quickly knock over a loosely attached arch. Follow our instructions and your rose arch stands like a one.
Set up rose arch - 2 tips
- At the point where the rose arch should go, dig out four holes that should be at least 50 centimeters deep. Then you have to put a metal or plastic pipe of exactly the same length vertically into the hole and fill it with liquid cement. These tubes should have a diameter of about 20 centimeters. Now all you have to do is place the rose arch in the foundation, let the cement harden and fill the holes with earth - done!
- If you want to set up a rose arch made of wood, then you should not let the wood directly into the cement but only use so-called beam shoes. You can also bring these into the ground without a foundation. You should screw the wooden rose arch onto the wooden shoes.
