always attracted to these moon arches but don't know where one could possibly go *Liz: We could imitate the look by doing a trellis over your arched front door! An shallow, arched trellis immediately in front of the door would make the pass through feel deep and secretive.
Multiple concentric metal rings in this garden support a cool canopy of climbing plants and give a sense of expectation for visitors. A subtle and artful feature of ancient moon gates connecting contrasting “worlds” is that the design allowed only one person to step through at a time, according to Maggie Keswick, author of The Chinese Garden: History, Art and Architecture. By crossing alone from one space to another, it’s said that the experience becomes more intimate and significant.
