We love Vita products – crafted of durable BPA/phthalate-free vinyl, they are strong, stylish and virtually maintenance-free. Just the occasional rinse with a garden hose is all you’ll need to do to keep your arbor or trellis looking great year after year. Plus, they are simple to assemble and install and come with a 20-year warranty.
The Fairfield Deluxe Arbor makes a statement in any yard, garden or pathway. The flat-top design creates a timeless appeal while the architectural detail of the side panels adds a fresh, distinguished look.
Combining exclusive architectural features with the timeless beauty of tradition, the clean lines and classic styling of the Westchester Arbor will add drama to any surrounding. A rectangular pattern graces each side panel for a modern look. This framework is perfect for supporting climbing plants, or leave it unadorned for a more streamlined look. Molding at the top of each leg leads to the arch, with a keystone accent in the center of the arch for added interest.
The Carolina Arbor is a stately reinvention of traditional arbor design, bringing a modern charm to any outdoor space. Crafted from durable BPA/phthalate-free composite, the Carolina gives the appearance of wood with all of the maintenance-free benefits of vinyl.
If you prefer real wood, cedar is an excellent choice. Not only is it beautiful, cedar contains natural preservatives that help it resist insects and decay. The Heartwood Grande Cedar Arbor is crafted from sustainably sourced FSC cedar and treated with a warm, distinctive and environmentally friendly water-based stain.
Maximize the full potential of your outdoor space with the Alcove corner pergola. A unique triangular design, the Alcove makes for the perfect upgrade to those smaller nooks, so you can enjoy every corner of your yard or patio. Plus, it looks amazing with wisteria growing on it.
A fast-growing vine can do more than add beauty; it can help create a screen against the outside world and imbue your backyard with a sense of peace and privacy. Use it as a garden or yard divider or to conceal pool equipment or the A/C unit.
The Camden Privacy Trellis is a bold and striking stand-alone garden structure that can act as a dynamic accent wall, privacy screen or boundary maker. The 48 separate trellis cells support a wide variety of climbing flowers and plants.
These cottage picket wings and gate are charming and practical outdoor accessories that coordinate with many Vita arbors and can enhance your arbor entrance in a lovely way.
