Timber Arbors and Trellises

Create an Invitation & Accentuate your Backyard with ShadeScape™ Arbors & Trellises

Arbor and Trellis structures are an excellent way to accent your backyard living space. In our experience they are often used in conjunction with a pergola, gazebo, or pavilion to accent a walk way, hidden corner, or provide shade for a swing, or bench. Arbors are a great way to provide a small amount of shade to a dedicated area or walk way. Our heavy duty Arbors and Trellises utilize our dovetail joint method for superior strength and a minimum of maintenance.

Arbor Day was appointed in 1872 as a National Holiday to plant a tree. “Arbor” literally means a tree, orchard, or shade covering.

Shade has always been a vital need to living things for rest and rejuvenation. With an arbor/trellis timber frame structure from Western Timber Frame™ the structure is a durably permanent outdoor shade structure built to last for centuries.

Side lattice trellis

In ancient times an arbor was an orchard or a natural kind of latticework formed or covered with vines or branches for a shaded retreat. Whereas a trellis is a lattice framework that is formed by crossing laths or thin strips diagonally or in a zigzagged style.

Lattices were also used ornamentally for covered windows, gates, doors, form a wall, support climbing vine and roses, shade garden areas and more.

Today, modern Arbors and Trellises have become extremely popular in prominent residential and commercial areas for its low cost in meeting a variety of landscaping needs spanning from a quaint homespun cottage appeal to a formal illustrious estate.

Vertical Gardening & Landscape Design

Western Timber Frame™ garden arbors and trellises add a stunningly inviting feel to a garden and are also very practical to accentuate with hanging baskets, pots or growing boxes. They help facilitate beautiful and inviting backyard living throughout the year.

Natural timber is a fantastic substrate for plants, and vines over metal arbors or latticeworks, which can burn and freeze growing plants. A trellis can add a new dimension to unique climbing vines, vegetables or vineyards as well as garden flowers. They are excellent for vertical gardening to keep vegetables and flowers off of the ground, or even to grow a vegetable garden in a limited space, or a nook in your backyard.

Trellises are a natural element for walls; boundaries and enclosures while arbors serve as entryways, gateways and pathway coverings. From a very small or narrow area to a large expansive surrounding, arbors and trellises help create the perfect landscape.

Outdoor Living Nooks and Retreats

A pair of arbors with a bench or benches facing each other will provide a quiet place to sit and exquisite beauty to a garden, sandbox, park, landscape, residential or commercial area as well as camping or tourist areas. An arbor swing can also be an enchanting invitation to a garden or landscape as well as a welcome resting place at the end of a pathway or quiet secluded retreat.

“Western Timber Frame was wonderful to work with. They were easy to talk to. They came out quickly after we called them. They gave us an appraisal, and then when they lined up people to come out and do the cement work it was done quickly. I especially love that it is a family business; that there are a lot of brothers that work together. And when they came out, there were two brothers who installed the entire pavilion in one day” – Calleen Argyle – UT

“The guys showed incredible attention to detail. They left my yard looking fantastic, and kept the work area clear so that my 3 year old and I could safely watch the whole process. It was so cool! The Pergola went together like Lincoln Logs. And the pergola in my back yard is just as gorgeous and durable as the one my friend bought that started this whole adventure. I highly recommend Western Timber Frame. If you are looking for affordable, durable, and high end, this is the place to go! This was an excellent experience from start to finish.

Andrus Family Pergola

“Before I found them, I was going to have one self built. But when I found them it was kind of a no brainer to have them manufacture it. Because I wanted something heavy. Rather than the light little you know 2×4 or 2×6 construction. I wanted something that was heavy and sturdy and looked proportional.” – Lindsay Andrus – UT
