Answer: 
I wouldn't want any more than 10-15 pounds. Any climbing plants would certainly not tax the structure.

Answer: 
I certainly could, provided there is no wind at the time. The legs could always be secured a little better with something like bricks, sandbags, or anything to keep the arbor from moving.
Of course, sandbags at a wedding might looks a little out of place. ;-)

Answer: 
It would be better if you used the ground stakes that come with the arbor. They are 12" long and you can just bury them in ground for temporary use.

Answer: 
There are anchors (smaller square PVC tubes that fit into the feet) that can be adjusted to any depth needed. I set the feet in concrete myself, but as they're attached to the feet with screws, the arbor can be taken down without difficulties.

Answer: 
There are 4- 12" vinyl poles that go into the ground about 6", the arbor fits into them. I live in a very windy are, so I also used 4 -12" rebar inside of them, hammered them deeper into the ground to help secure it.

Answer: 
The thickness (without using a micrometer) would be what you'd see in the thick PVC pipes for water around a house. Thick enough to work well, but still rather light.
The legs are 1 1/2" square, and the arbor at it's highest is 80".

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garden arbor The arbor was just as advertised. Looks wonderful. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the money Well made product and easy to assemble. I'd recommend using the supplied anchors or set the feet in cement, as any high winds will adversely affect the arbor. Looks great and dresses up any yard. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wobbly but suits my purpose. I ordered this to erect over a shrub that needed shade. I zip tied faux ivy over the top arch and then dug trenches to set it in the ground. I am an older woman and found assembly very easy. I did pre-drill the screw holes though as I have arthritic hands with little strength. I was missing some pieces parts on arrival, but manufacturer very kind, helpful and prompt in shipping the missing bits. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great arbor - r eplaces a metal one that rusted out I would really have liked wrought iron but couldn't afford it. This is an admirable 2nd choice June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to put together I am a single female and I put it together by myself, though it said you need a second person. The hardest thing was finding out what an auger screw is and why no holes were drilled in most place. I did that on YouTube. For those that don't know an auger screw makes it's own hole, you don't need to predrill one. I put everything on a tarp and followed the instructions. It looks great. Now I have to find out how to dig a hole and use quickcrete. :) July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by affordable arbor The arbor was easy to put together. I would recommend stabilizing the arbor in cement for peace of mind that it will stay put. from far away it looks like wood. It will last for years with no fear of it rotting! June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good+ Everything was fine, except the anchoring stakes were a joke. The anchoring stakes were 16" long and 6+ inches went into the leg, which left 10- inches to put in the ground. Even in the Northern states you would have to cement them in. Even cementing them in, would not work in Florida! I pounded 4' 6'' 1120 PVC pipe, that would just fit inside the legs of the arbor, in the ground for each leg, then slipped the arbor down over them, leveled the arbor and secured each leg with the furnished screws. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice arbor! If one doesn't mind putting 48 screws into a unit it is well worth the effort! Looks great. June 21, 2016
