An arbor and pergolas, which is which? Many people still don’t get the difference between these two outdoor structures. They use these terms interchangeably that should not be the case as you cannot refer to one as the other. Despite the very many similarities, they also have differences. Pergolas normally have a flat latticed roof and are mostly erected in the yard and can be used as a living space. Arbor, on the other hand, has arched latticed roofs and are often constructed at the entrances. These can be the main entrance to your home or entrances to the garden. They are purely for aesthetic value and nothing else.

Arbor design specifications
Our designers are so knowledgeable about the design and installation of arbors just the same way you are a pro at the job that you are doing. They know what it takes to have the best arbor on your property. One of the factors considered is height. Arbor is meant to be installed on the walkways in many cases. So, the height should be high enough to allow people to walk through without having to bend low. The standard height is between 8 and 10 feet. This is high enough to accord your visitors the comfort that they deserve. However, you can have it of any height if you choose that it be built customarily for you. The standard heights that we mentioned earlier are for ready-made arbors.
The cost of arbor design and installation varies depending on what material it is made of and its size. An arbor can be made from wood, vinyl, metal, or composite. These materials have different price tags. So, if your budget is not tight, you can go for the best material, which is metal. This will be able to serve you for so many years to come. With proper painting, it can outlive you.
An arbor can be free-standing or attached to a fence. You will rarely find a free-standing arbor unless you want it. Attached arbors are common. They are normally attached to the garden fences at the entrance or at the main entrance to your home. The installation process and cost also vary. This should not bother you as we always have what you can afford. Just call us and we will assess the situation and talk about it.
