Palo Alto, CA

Four-Post Wood Arbor Trellis with overhead inset panel and a front and rear Valance Panel. The Garden Arbors ship as complete assemblies to be seated on top of existing site posts, masonry columns, or as an extension to site posts, shown below. The entire assembly, weighing 175 lbs, is set onto the site posts..






Highland, New York.

The homeowner has relocated a series of existing picket fences to become a part of the overall
assembly until, we're told, they eventually commission us to provide the proper flanking and foyer panels.

And what are potted palms doing in New York?



Each of the varying methods of joinery used in Arbor Trellis #19 are utilizied for a purpose. All driven by design to allow the assembly to breath, to expand and contract. When these parameters are met, in conjunction with stress loads called upon each segment, we have a construction that will by all accounts last far into the future.

Greenbrea, CA (Marin County)

The original #19 Four-Post Wood Arbor Trellis with Drop-In Ceiling Panel and one Valance Panel.

When within the UPS Freight limitations, Arbor #19 ships as a complete assembly to be seated on top of the site posts or beams. The blow assembly weighs approximately 125 lbs.

While the Smiths sleep, dreaming of sliver-lined clouds, an epic battle rages. Waged across continents, the eternal good vs evil in a proprietary struggle for balance within the cosmos of a teetering inequality.
