* The arbor clearance should be between 80-84". From the top of your posts, the radius height is 1/2" the distance between the posts. If, for example, the posts are 48" apart, The arbor will have a radius of 24". To achieve 84" clearance, the posts will be cut at 60" off the grade. All of which is shown on your eventual dimensioned drawings.

When shipped for wood post applications, Prowell Arbors arrive with the threaded rod in place and the mounting caps bored for assembly. When delivered or picked up at the shop, the mounting caps are fixed in place as shown. A corresponding hole is bored by your installer into the tops of the site posts, allowing the threaded rod to 'seat' itself. Construction caulk adhesive or epoxy is recommended.

Palo Alto, CA

The radius of the #10 arbor is affected by the width between the posts. As a true 360-degree arch, coupled with the same feature of the gate #8 demands a specific height of the gate. All of it shown on the dimensioned drawings posted for your review prior to any work in the shop. An opportunity to consider the complexities.

Great Falls, Virginia

Garden Arbor #10-1 with Garden Gate #8-3 is posted, in part, as an example of our homeowner electing to manage the finish process themselves and deciding upon a product that is billed to bring out the natural beauty of wood. It is essentially an oil product and while it clearly enhances the wood, it is also a product that stipulates only one coat. The splotchy appearance seen below is the result of successive coats laying on top of the initial coat and as a result, unable to absorb evenly. But more . . . oil finishes such as this have a lifeline of approximately one year before requiring maintenance. Oil finishes that 'enhance the wood' are probably the biggest myth of exterior finishes. Subjected to the elements, such an approach is to buy into a future of relentless upkeep, without prolonging the life of the assembly by one day.

Review the Pre-Finish Options not necessarily as a requirement to have us finish your product, but moreover as a means to insure you settle on the right product. The various options are provided with links so they can be purchased direct from the dealer or manufacturer should you choose to manage the finish yourself. They have been culled from all the products on the market and although the grades of western cedar we spec from the mill do not require a finish or any treatment to prolong the life of the wood, the aesthetics often suggest a finish. Whether we apply this or you apply it, it's important to use the right product.
