How To Use The 3D Oak Garden Arch Designer

The Garden Arch Controls are split between the two different types of Arch we Offer, the 4 Post and the 2 Post. As you make your selections the 3D Model will change to give you a representation of what your Garden Arch will look like.

Below you can find out what each control does and which Arch(es) it allows you to change.

Arch Type


The type control lets you switch between the two different Arch options we supply in the 4 Post and the 2 Post.


The Size control is available on both Garden Arch types. For the Four post you can control the width, length and height whereas for the 2 post you only get the option to change the width and height.

The width sets the part of the arch you can walk through whereas the length (where applicable) sets the side that the trellising fits to.



The braces control allows you to choose how many braces you want. Choices vary.


The Trellis control is only available on the 4 Post Arch. This allows you to choose whether or not you want trellising with your garden arch. The trellis is made up of loose 50 x 50mm European Oak which will need to be cut to size on site and stainless steel screwed into position.


The Footings control is only available on the 4 post arch and allows you to choose Normal Posts, Staddle Stones or Into Ground (posts go 600mm into ground).

The two post arch is only available with posts Into the Ground.


The Thickness control allows you to choose the section size of your posts and headplates and you get the choices of 120mm, 150mm, 175mm and 200mm.



The profile control determines which ends the crossmembers and headplates are profiled to. With choices of either square, chamfered, rounded and ornate.


The Crossmembers control is only available on the 4 post arches and sets the number of crossmembers you have on your arch. There is also a secondary control which tells you our recommended number of crossmembers for the size your arch.


The overhang lets you set the size of the overhang on crossmembers and headplates (The overhang is set to the same size on both sides).

All our Arches are:
Made from hand-selected, expertly crafted oak
Planed all round for a smooth finish
Made of high quality Fresh Sawn Oak
Flat-packed for easy assembly
Currently on an approximate 5 - 7 weeks (from drawing sign off) lead time
50% deposit on checkout. Balance payment due approx. 1 week before delivery.

Expertly Crafted Oak Garden Arches

Oak Garden Arches are available in various shapes and sizes. These contemporary frames are ideal for going over entrances to private and public gardens and offer a unique opportunity to grow wisteria and clamatis plants up the posts and trellising.

These Oak Garden Arches are provided in a kit form and are expertly crafted to your exact dimensions with all of the joinery work done. The crossmembers, braces and headplates are pre-mortise and tenoned whilst the trellising is provided for you to attach to the arch yourself (this gives you the opportunity to be a bit creative and put your own stamp on your arch).

You get the choice between a four post and a two post arch with the four post being the more expansive with the addition of an Oak trellis.

If you have your own design or have seen something else that you like, let us know and we’ll be happy to quote you for an Oak Garden Arch that is to your design.

How To Order Your Oak Framed Arch

All major cards
securely accepted

Ordering from Oak Timber Structures is straightforward. Nevertheless, our team is on hand to help throughout the process. Here are the simple steps to order a bespoke oak arch:

  1. First, create the oak arch using the designer or send drawings to
  2. For online orders, click ‘Add to Basket’.
  3. Navigate to your shopping basket where you can checkout securely online. We accept all major credit cards excluding American Express (as image). If you run into any checkout issues, please contact us using the online chat or call us and we’ll talk you through the process. Alternatively, you can order over the phone.
  4. We then produce technical drawings for you to sign off and gain approval from a structural engineer if needed. CAD drawings take between 2-3 working days to produce.
  5. If you are unhappy with an aspect of the drawings, we encourage you to call and seek advice from our helpful and friendly staff. They’ll revise the drawings accordingly and send them back to you for re-approval.
  6. Once signed off, we add your structure to the production queue and create it according to the stated lead times. During this time, many people use the approved drawings to get their groundwork in place if required.
  7. Our skilled team assembles the oak arch to make sure there are no issues. This also allows us to code all components for seamless assembly. We then dismantle the arch and organise it into transportable kit form.
  8. If you're running behind schedule, we're happy to store your structure for up to 4 weeks at no extra charge. Please note that we limit storage to 4 weeks. As green oak dries, it shrinks. Shrinkage is normal. In fact, our skilled staff prepares your structure for shrinkage to fuse joints, making them tighter and more robust. Yet, after 4 weeks, joints can become misaligned and harder to assemble, so it's important to limit storage time.
  9. We schedule delivery by liaising with you once your bespoke oak arch is complete.
