Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geena Pretty arbor, decent construction
This is a very pretty arbor, I was a little worried because it feels a bit flimsy being vinyl and all but so far so good. I've only had it for almost two years though. I can't say how easy or difficult setup was, because I had someone else do it (not Home Depot). However, the person who installed it placed one piece upside down (as my neighbor pointed out to me!). I think I paid around $250-$300 for this arbor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBinFL Perfect addition to my garden
We ordered two of these to replace rotted wooden ones that were in the garden when we bought the house. The arbors came well packed and were easy to assemble. We did add treated lumber for added support. They look great and no yearly painting or fear of rot!

I was very impressed with the Arbor, both in price and quality and ease of assembly. It mostly snaps together and is secured with a few screws. I put 2x4's in cement for permanent mounting, however the 2x4's only go up inside the main legs of the arbor 9 inches which does not make it very ridgid. I suggest that the 2x4's be made the full length of the legs and inserted before assembly, marked and notched to make room for the connecting parts then reinsert them before snapping in the connectors, this would produce a very solid, ridgid arbor capable of supporting a gate and connecting fence providing the protruding 2x4's are buried in cement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardenparadise Great value
At first I was skeptical of this because it seemed wobbly, so I called the manufacturer to see if I was doing something wrong, and apparently it was a new product that they have since revised in order to make it sturdier.
They sent me the necessary screws and assembly information and it made a big difference in the stability of my arbor. They also advised me to forego the ground stakes and use pressure treated lumber for long term assembly, which was a much better option.
Not only am I happy with this product (great value for vinyl, especially with a 20 year warranty), but the company was a pleasure to deal with. They were helpful and quick to send out the additional screws required. I am thinking of buying a trellis from them next.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Runman Home Depot Associates were helpful. Delivery was prompt. Good quality merchandise
Nice, a little pricey, I thought it would be a little more sturdy, but ok, not flimsy.

This is a very pretty arbor, it goes great with my theme of white picket fencing for our gardens. The only problem is that it is not very secure. The material makes it very flimsy. Bugs don't go near it which is what i wanted, but unless spiked down well, a gust will rattle it around. i wouldn't recommend using the spikes provided, we made ours our of iron for more support. Overall, pretty to look at and it serves it purpose, but very flimsy matterial for the price.

Hard to level by yourself if your putting it in the ground and adding cement. Also, I would be two by threes in the hollow of the legs to add stability prior to assemble. The mfg didn't do a good job of laying out the screw holes you have to improvise and you can mess it up very easily if not carefull when you are drilling the holes. Should have come with pre-drill holes for all the screws required. Would not buy this product again especially for the price paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cottagegarden Not bad for the price
I really like the arbor but you MUST reinforce it when you assemble and place it in your garden. The installation directions were not as good as the suggestion by John7343 from Enterprise, Oregon - I had my contractor use his suggestion about the posts all the way up the legs and cemented them into the ground. It's pretty stable like that but without it, it would have been fairly shaky - it is beautiful to look at... and I am happy with the purchase.
