Find The Right One For Your Yard
Could your yard or garden use a beautiful addition like one of
the arbors shown in the photos below?
Arbors are often used in gardens or outdoor spaces for various purposes. Primarily, they serve as a decorative feature, creating a focal point in the landscape. They can form a tunnel-like passage that adds
aesthetic value to a garden path. Additionally, they can provide shade and create an area for relaxation. Arbors are also used to
support climbing plants where they can function as trellises, allowing vines and climbers to grow around them. These structures can also function as an entry point or gate to a defined outdoor space.
Common materials used for arbors include wood, metal, and vinyl. Wood is a traditional material for arbors. It blends well with the natural landscape and is quite sturdy. Types of wood used can include
cedar, redwood, and pine. However, wooden arbors require regular maintenance to protect against weather and insect damage.
Metal arbors, often made from iron or steel, are durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. They are also available in a variety of designs and can be more elaborate than wooden options. Vinyl is
a low maintenance option that doesn’t rust, rot or fade over time. Vinyl arbors are easy to clean and usually only require a rinse with a garden hose.
There are several manufacturers known for producing high-quality arbors. New England Arbors, Dura-Trel and Vita are all known for their high quality vinyl arbors. Oakland Living is known for high quality metal arbors and Garden
architecture is know for high end wood structures.
Brand quality can often be subjective so it is important to review customer feedback, warranty details, and the specific needs for your space. It's also
recommended to check your local garden center or home improvement store as they often carry regional brands that have good reputations.
Many arbors are designed to be user-friendly and relatively easy to install, especially if you purchase a kit. These kits usually come with all the necessary parts along with detailed step-by-step instructions. Some may require
no more than slotting pieces together and securing them with the provided hardware, while others may require additional tools like a screwdriver or a drill.
However, the level of ease can depend on several factors including the design complexity of the arbor, the type of material it's made from, the manufacturer's instructions, and
your comfort level with DIY projects. Larger or more ornate arbors may be more complex and require more time and tools to assemble.
