Roman Arches Linked for Apples
"A designer contacted us with a requirement for a series of bespoke linked arches with a training wire system to train crab apples over the structure for winter colour, providing winter colour in the garden. The design incorporated a path that narrowed at one end so each arch had to decrease in size from one end to the other and be scaled in proportion. The arches are linked using a high tension steel wire to train the espalier crab apple trees up and along the structure. The designer wanted to also provide a viewpoint window at a particular point in the structure to enable the clients to view an established magnolia off to one side - this was achieved by designing the structure with a missing section off the high tension wire on one side. After a site visit to measure up, our design team were able to supply a CAD for marking out on site and upon approval of this we proceeded to manufacture. The project was delivered on time and on budget."

"Thank you so much, the linked arches are exactly what we needed and I can’t wait to see them planted up."
