Free Arbor Plans

Arbor plans can help you make a beautiful entryway to your yard or house with a comfortable swing or bench. It can also do double duty acting as a support for roses, grape vines or other climbing plants.

Free arbor plans are available in many shapes and styles to compliment any architectural style and many are easily customized to fit a specific area. Choose a project with a gate or double doors, bench or latticework for added interest, or select a simple structure of posts and cross-member stock lumber.


CCA treated lumber is the most economical building material, but redwood is a beautiful and long lasting wood that can be used for a structure that is attractive and durable. Always use galvanized or stainless steel fasteners to avoid rust and corrosion.
