Finding store bought ones to be expensive and inadequate,I have plans to
build an arbor. It is to serve as a decorative entrance to the Garden area
and as growing space for kiwifruit.
Feel free to post your suggestions and examples of your own arbors, or to
let me know if I'm doing something wrong.
The plan I envision:
Four 4x4 8 foot long treated lumber posts, embedded up to a foot into the
ground and probably cemented down with fence post cement and arranged in a
4' by 4' square pattern.
4' 2 x 4 lumber cross pieces across the north and south sides and across the
top. (I'm figuring out placement and how many)
2 4'x8' white vinyl lattice pieces on the south and north side.
1 4x4 piece of lattice across the top.
Decay resistant screws or nails long enough to penetrate a 4x4 into a 2x4.
Shorter screws or tacks. to attach the lattice.
Kiwi planted on the south side and maybe some other vine on the north side.
