What do you call an arched entrance to a garden? I am not sure if there's a word specifically for garden entrances, but I am willing to bet there's a word for an arched entrance like that. What do you call it?
I'd just call it a "fence gate". Maybe "a fence gate under an arch".– Eddie KalJan 19, 2021 at 2:55
1Eddie's answer may be correct for the US, but I (BrE) would call it a garden gate with an arch. You may find this reference useful for garden terms: edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep432– JavaLatteJan 19, 2021 at 3:03
You could refer to it as a lych gate, but this term is mainly used for the entrance to a churchyard, and normally has a waterproof roof. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lychgate– JavaLatteJan 19, 2021 at 3:28
I call it an archway, or An arch over an entrance or passageway but those can vary a lot in size and materials. If you are speaking very specifically about an arched entry into a garden, I would call it a garden arch or an arbor.
Arbor was the first thing I thought of, but in my mind, it is always meant to be covered in some sort of climbing plant, and it’s not always over a passageway. Arbors can be set over a bench to provide a nice shady place to sit.
Like most words in English, the choice of which one works best depends on the context.
