The original Garden Arbor #14 from a home in Sausalito, CA, showing flanking panels on either side of the gate/arbor, as well as 'foyer' panels within the depth of the arbor entry. Although we will often include a keystone, it is now inlaid to the arbor truss instead of as shown below.

  Prowell Arbors arrive with the mounting caps fixed to the arbor trusses. Depending on the application, the caps mount to your posts, columns, or wall-tops with either wood screws through the pre-bored holes in the caps, or with the threaded rod shown on the left. A corresponding hole is bored into the tops of the site posts, allowing the threaded rod to 'seat' itself. Construction caulk adhesive or epoxy is recommended.  


    GARDEN ARBOR #14-2

An early arbor #15, with keystone. Trusses at 3-1/2" width for surfaced 4x4 posts.
Full insert Keystones: Add $175
