Prowell's Custom Wood Arbor Trellis #19 in Highland, New York.

Four-Post Wood Arbor Trellis with Drop-In Ceiling Panel and a front and rear Valance Panel. The Garden Arbors ship as complete assemblies to be seated on top of existing site posts utilizing either mounting caps between the arbor and the posts (shown here), or as invisible threaded rod bored into the bottom of the arbor post extension and fitted into a corresponding bore in the tops of the posts. The entire assembly, weighing 125 lbs, is set onto the site posts.

We also see our homeowner's existing picket fence adjoining each side. We understand that in the following spring, the double gates and side foyer panels will be ordered to replace the pickets and complete the assembly.


A little better look at the patterning joinery of Garden Arbor Trellis #19.

  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.
  The purpose of the photo here is simply to illustrate the role of a garden pergola within the landscape. A separator that can serve to partition sections of a landscape as well as announce a primary entry into the garden.



Including for no reason beyond the envy of a Californian for the blanketing snowfalls of the east.

    GARDEN ARBOR #19-1

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.

The underside of the arbor cross-beams is notched to accept the site posts.
