The Richmond Arbor provides the perfect structure for any yard, garden or pathway. The flat top pergola style design is very stylish, while still offering timeless appeal. Made with premium weather-resistant vinyl, the Richmond Arbor is virtually maintenance free. Never stain, paint, or maintain your arbor again. Vinyl offers the classic look of wood without the headaches. Just the occasional rinse with a garden hose is all you need to do to keep your arbor looking great year after year. This product comes with a 20 year warranty against yellowing, warping, cracking, and rotting. Wood will rot away, and wrought iron will rust and burn plants when the sun shines down on the black metal. Vinyl is strong and durable, so you can cultivate plant growth on your arbor without having to worry about rotting, painting, or burnt plants. For installation purchase our Aussie Augers (sold separately - model #VA80040), or extend the posts with pressure treated lumber inserts not included.
