Cedar Arbors

Cedar Arbors are decorative and beautiful. Solidly constructed from a variety of hard woods, they are also durable, long lasting, require minimal maintenance, and are resistant to the weather, mildew, rot and insects.

The fine craftsmanship brings out spectacular and intricate designs that will enhance a garden, patio, any other outdoor space. Have the arbor fit in with your individual decor and provide a shaded place where you can put a bench underneath and relax, visit with family and friends, and enjoy the beauty around you. If you also want to watch and listen to the birds, put small bird houses on the arbor.

An arbor is a uniquely decorative structure. Vertical pillars or posts are connected on top with crossbeams or an arch, and typical open latticework encourages the growth of colorful vines and flowers.

An arbor over your front walk can create a lovely welcome and a grand entrance as well as and bringing a sense of sophistication to the entryway of your home. Choose one that fits with your home's style.

Another use for an arbor is as a wedding arch for an outdoor, beach, sunset or "under the stars" wedding. The arbor would provide an excellent backdrop and focal point for the ceremony and for picture taking of the wedding party.

Arbors are exceptionally pretty when made of cedar, particularly red cedar, which might be (1) Thuja plicata, commonly referred to as Pacific or western red cedar, which is a western North American evergreen tree in the cypress family, or (2) Juniperus virginiana, commonly referred to as Eastern red cedar, an evergreen tree that can grow up to 40 feet tall. It is very narrow and compact, and the bark is reddish-brown and peels off in shreds. Eastern red cedars are used in many ways including arbors, fence posts, furniture, paneling, woodenware, chests and even as Christmas trees.
