I've been wanting to do a cattle panel arch but had no way of getting one of the large panels home. I just might be able to get a vinyl lattice in my car.

Thanks so much, great plan.
I think you can spray paint the PVC easily, to maybe make it brown, or metal looking. Just my thought, please don't take it as criticism.

I like this idea! Simple, easy, anyone can do it, no heavy lifting or straining required, affordable. What's not to like?
@Brinybay
Greg, one question. How wide is the pass through?

About 70" wide, 74" tall. One thing I need to do is anchor it better. I thought the tension against the ends of the cedar planters would suffice, but the wind picked it up and tossed it a couple of times. I was trying to figure out the best way to do that, and discovered that since it's only 2 ft. wide, I could use a couple of 30" cedar planters and simply bury the ends in them and still use them for plants. It would also still be movable, one aspect I wanted in case we decide to either relocate it or temporarily move it out of the way.

Remove the elbows and replace them with tees. Get four pieces of rebar about 30" long. Drive them about half way into the ground then insert the exposed ends into the tees.

Thank you Greg. 70" wide sounds great.
I agree with Jay. Perfect solution for anchoring it and if you wish to move it all you do is slide it up off the rebar.

One thing I forgot to mention is that this was not intended to be aesthetically appealing on it's own, but more of a means to an end. I had in mind that the zip ties and pvc would eventually be covered by climbing growth. My goal is it would eventually look more like this:
