Arbor Plans - Free DIY Arbors to Build - Garden Arbors

Arbor plans can help you make a beautiful entryway to your yard or house with a comfortable swing or bench. A garden arbor can also do double duty acting as a support for roses, grapevines or other climbing plants.

Free DIY arbors are available in many shapes and styles to compliment any architectural style and many are easily customized to fit a specific area. Choose an arbor project with a gate or double doors, bench or latticework for added interest, or select a simple structure of posts and cross-member stock lumber.

CCA treated lumber is the most economical building material, but redwood is a beautiful and long lasting wood that can be used for an arbor structure that is attractive and durable. Always use galvanized or stainless steel fasteners to avoid rust and corrosion.
