Garden arbor plans

An arbor is a wooden vertical structure most commonly found in gardens, yards, parks, etc. It can be placed at the entrance to a garden or in the middle of a garden or yard, decorated with a lattice or trellis for climbing plants, equipped with a built-in seat or swing, attached to a fence, structure or be freestanding. As you can see, there are many types of arbor, and all of them have one thing in common - they are a beautiful decoration, and if you equip it with a seat it can give you hours of relaxation and satisfaction while sitting in its shade and watching your beautiful garden.
 
Arbor structure is very simple and usually consists of 4 posts, a simple slatted roof and sides. An arbor can be made very quickly using a few portable power tolls and easy-to-find materials.
 
On this page we present to you the plans to build 3 different arbors:
- Arbor with lattice
- Arbor with trellis
- Arbor with wrought iron sides
 
All 3 versions of the arbor structure in our plan are the same, the only difference being the sides structure.

Note: These three arbor designs use standard dimensional lumber, so if you have lumber of different dimensions than the ones you see in the plan, you need to adjust dimensions of a lumber.

Arbors can be made from various types of lumber. The best solution is to buy weather resistant lumber (cedar, redwood or similar), and if there is no such option, or it is very expensive, make yourselves an arbor from the lumber available to you and protect it from the elements with some quality coatings.

The arbor design in the plan is adapted for installation on concrete footings, but it can also be installed on a flat concrete surface.

You can use these plans to create 3 different arbors of the dimensions provided in the plan, or to create an arbor of your original design. We do not mind, it is important that you will be satisfied with it for years to come and enjoy its beauty and the flowers or vines growing on it.

If you decide to make these beautiful wooden arbors, they will definitely become the centerpiece decoration of your garden. They will endure a lifetime, bringing with them all the memories of carefree moments. These arbors will serve as a wonderful protection from the sun, while the overhead criss-crossed structure makes a perfect trellis for climbing plants like grapes, evergreen lonicera and ivy or even a rose.
