Advantages Of Vinyl
Vinyl is the perfect construction material for spaces subject to extreme weather conditions. Scorching heat and sub-zero temperatures simply don’t affect the finish. Unlike wood, it doesn’t fade or splinter in the elements and unlike wood there is no staining or maintenance required. Simply spray it down with a garden hose and it’ll look like new.
Vinyl arbors can be made to look like natural materials. When choosing an arbor that is made to look like wood or another natural surface be careful to make sure it doesn’t look fake. Pay a bit more to if need be as bad “wood-look” arbors can truly be an eye sore.
Vinyl Arbor Styles
Arbors are available in several variations, but two styles you’ll find most are arched and pergola arbor designs.
Considered the most traditional arbor style, arched arbors are distinguished by their regal curved tops. These work well at entry points to walkways or as a divider in a garden with vines working their way through the lattice sides.
You can find many arched style arbor made of vinyl as well as metal but wood construction is harder to find due to the design.
With their perpendicular columns and flat cross-beam top pergola style arbors create a classic design. Because of the flat top they are perfect as an accent in a garden where vines can grow completely around the structure or to create a shaded area on a patio.
Pergola arbors are generally available in more sizes than arched. The larger the size the more expensive they become.

One customer reviewer writes:
“I was a little hesitant at first in purchasing an arbor online because there are so many of its kind that are flimsy. This is NOT the case w/ the Dura-Trel Somerset Vinyl Arch Arbor – it’s very sturdy. Constructing the unit was a snap so long as you have a wide leveled working area. The mounting metal “L” bars was easy to place in the soil – I used a spare piece of wood over the bar, then, hammered down using a rubber mallet. Only time will tell how the Arbor will last after yearly weathering but for now I’m very pleased w/ its construction and appearance!”
