Answer

The Fairfield Grande (and all of our arbors and pergolas) are not meant to support anything but plants. In that regard, it is covered by a 20 year warranty against defects and you'll never have to paint it or stain it.

Can this arbor support weight being added on top?

Asked by GeorgeL August 1, 2020
1
Answer

The Fairfield Grande arbor is designed to add beauty to your yard and support climbers such as clematis and honeysuckle. Any weight beyond that is not recommended.

Can this be installed in the ground? Does it have all the accessories to install in the ground?

Answer

To install in the ground, you will need to purchase either the arbor post extension kit or 4X4 posts, available at Home Depot.

Grape Vine weight - can the arbor handle the weight of a grape vine? Any concerns with winter snow load sitting on top?

Asked by SalD May 31, 2020
1
Answer

There is no concern for snow load for the Fairfield Grande. We have customers that enjoy supporting their grape vines with the Fairfield Grande however it must be installed in concrete and even then, over the years as the vine gets bigger (and thicker) it will move the arbor.

Answer

The Fairfield Grande arbor was designed to complement your garden and be installed in the ground. It could be installed on a deck but we don't have any brackets engineered for that purpose. You may have some luck with Simpson Strong Ties.

Does anyone know the difference between models, VA84230 and VA84231.

Asked by Ray April 13, 2020
1
Answer

Great question. VA84231 is our Fairfield Grande Arbor. VA84230 is the same arbor with an extra trim kit. The trim kit is a decorative add-on that included a short base trim and an extra trim around the top of the posts. Both versions are covered with our 20 year manufacturer's warranty and you will never have to paint or stain either of them.

What length should the 4 X 4's be extended above ground for the arbor to be stable and also to be...

Asked by Ron April 8, 2020
1
Answer

Your 4X4 should extend at least 10" above the ground and into the arbor for stability. The bottom rail of the arbor comes in at that height. If you want to have more height, you can trim the width of the 4X4 at the end so that it will fit past the bottom rail.

Asked by robert May 25, 2018

Answer

You can bring the opening of this arbor down to 5'. We do not have a gate that would fit a 5' opening.

I'm aware of the fact that vines can grow through the lattice grids, but specifically, Wisteria? ...

Asked by Ivy December 7, 2017
1
Answer

Because of how aggressive a Wisteria vine is it would be better to train the vine to grow up the side of the arbor rather than through the lattice. You will also need to make sure you keep your Wisteria vine trimmed so it doesn't become overlay heavy.

Can a Wisteria vine twine through the small squares on this Arbor?

Asked by Ivy December 6, 2017
1
Answer

Yes, vines can grow between the lattice grids.

Transformed our entryway! Beautiful!
Truly a gorgeous arbor. We were a little scared at the assembly reading some of the reviews but my husband put it together by himself in about 2 hours with another 1-2 hours to dig holes and level the thing. Honestly it wasn't that bad. (Beware the top cross beams with pointy end caps are 108" wide...)

Sturdy , well built
I actually cut this down to 70" in width to cover side yard entry - very nice sturdy product. Easy instructions for a DIY person. Did need two people a few times for complete install - about 3 hours total to put together and cut down slightly to fit application - would buy again

Pleasantly surprised
First of all let me start by saying I personally do not like vinyl. However I bought this because it looked very nice. I read a couple reviews and was very nervous. When the box arrived (extremely fast from the Home Depot) it was in good condition. Upon opening the box I was very impressed in how it was packed. It was very easy to put together, everything lined up perfect the only thing I had to buy more vinyl fence adhesive they give 2 big tubes but I ran out because the directions on the glue say put some on both pieces. The gluing was the most time consuming. I am so happy with this piece and it’s quality.
by Jason
Disappointed with the quality.
We are an accomplished builder couple...set out on Sat. afternoon to put by beautiful arbor together. I was very excited to get it for my husband. It said it would take about two hours. Four hours later we gave up for the day. Screw holes don't line up....trellis pieces and their holes don't line up. It took my son and one of his friends (two 25year olds with enough muscle) to get the trellis pieces into the sides. Now they are a little bowed and I am presuming will be like that forever. Now that it is up it is very pretty ........but I am not sure it was a great value for the amount I spent. I was very happy that I ordered it from Home Depot because I trust them to take care of a problem....and the first day we were convinced we had a BIG problem!!! Would not have been able to assemble without the muscle power of the 20 something's!.

Maintenance Free
We have just put this up between the house and our new 2 1/2 car garage. It sits over a paver walkway leading to a white maintenance free fence. It really tied the whole thing together. Looks well made. I gave it only 4 stars because I'm not sure it was worth as much as I paid for it. I guess I will know in 10 years if it is still standing there and looking good.
