How to Easily Build an Arbor


Have you always wanted a small grape arbor or an arbor for your vining vegetables? Here's an easy to build arbor that will take 30 minutes or less to build.

Things You'll Need

  • Steel T-Posts (fence posts from farm & home store)
  • Cattle Panel
  • Galvanized wire
  • Cattle panels are 52 inches wide. Square up an area that is 52 inches wide and 6 feet across. The 6 feet will be the distance under the arbor.

    Set the 4 t-posts by pounding into the ground leaving 32 to 48 inches above ground. Two posts will be 48 inches apart and 6 feet from the second pair of posts.

  • Arch the cattle panel between the two pair of t-posts.

  • Start at the bottom. Wrap one strand of wire around the panel and post and twist tie until the panel is snug to the post. Wire the panel every 8 to 12 inches up the post. Go to the other side and wire the panel to these to posts as well.

  • Till the ground under on each side of the arbor. Plant a grape vine on each side or plant your favorite vining vegetables on each side of the arbor and watch the arbor become covered.
