You may think that vinyl arbors are a thing of the past, but we’re here to show you some arbor ideas that modernize and refresh their design — and hopefully change your mind!

The Economic Gardener — Chatham Arbor

The long-awaited statement piece for your garden is here!

If you consider yourself to be a bargain shopper or are famous for your green thumb, then our Chatham Vinyl Arbor is just what you’re looking for! Its simplistic design and top-of-the-line vinyl material makes it an affordable, yet long-lasting decoration for your flower garden.

Because of the unique lattice embellishing the sides, growing plants around this combination of pillars and crossbeams is one of our favorite arbor ideas! Twisting vines, green plants, and all of your favorite flowers grow beautifully upwards and throughout the top of this vinyl arbor. It’s also the best recommendation for a yard that’s tight on size.

Lights, camera, action! Or should we say: lights, flowers, love! This arbor design is made for the young at heart — with big hearts. Let us explain.

Arbors are known for their romantic feel, but our Plymouth Vinyl Arbor is the epitome of them all! Combine the already romantic arbor with some delicate lighting and you’ve created a stunning focal point. As night falls in the summertime, watch your arbor steal the spotlight — literally!

Additionally, nothing looks as gorgeous as an arbor with hanging plants dangling from the top crossbeams. This arbor design in particular is symmetrical, which means it frames hanging plants, or budding rose bushes, unbelievably well.
