Have you always wanted an arbor or two? Have you always thought it would be difficult to build or to costly? Now you can have your own simple to build arbor in just minutes.
Things You Will Need1. 4 - Steel T-Posts for fencing;
2. 1 - Cattle Panel available at any farm and home type store;
3. Wire for affixing the panel to the 4 posts;
4. Pliers, Fencing Pliers, or Channel Locks
Step 1Square up an area that is 52 inches wide (the width of the cattle panel). There will be two posts on each side of the arbor. The area under the arbor will be 6 foot x 52 inches. The posts will be 48 inches across and 6 feet apart. Pound the posts into the ground leaving 38 inches to 48 inches above ground.
Step 2Put one end of the cattle panel inside the square of posts and arch the other end down to inside the square of posts on the other end.
Step 3Starting at the bottom, place a piece of wire around the post and panel, twisting it with a pair of pliers or channel locks,until the panel is held tightly to the post. Continue to attach the panel every 8 to 12 inches until you reach the top. Repeat this on the other 3 posts.
Step 4Till the ground on each side of the arbor with a rotor tiller or a spade (shovel) and plant what you want to grow on your arbor such as grapes, luffas, cucumbers, wisteria, etc.
In just a half hour, you have been able to build your own arbor.
