The Q&A Archives: garden arbors

Question: What in the best way to stake a garden arbor? It is made of plastic. Are arbors best in a certain area? ex,entrance to a walk way or in the garden that is 4ft by 40ft along a fence i want to grow clematic(that flowering vine) on it. thanks

Answer: You will want to drive four sturdy stakes into the ground and then attach the legs of the arbor to the stakes using screws. Drive the stakes at least 6-8 inches into the ground so the arbor will be sturdy enough when the clematis grows to the top and becomes heavy. You can use an arbor most anywhere in your garden but they are generally found at the entrance to a garden or over a sidewalk. Just put the arbor where it looks the best to you and you'll enjoy your yard for many years to come.
