PERFECT----Comments about Product:
It took "some" time, well, a lot of time, to put it together, and, then to properly place it so it was solid, and "level" all the way around.
Let me explain. After putting it together, with the help of my regular handyman,(because I AM NOT good at this sort of thing), we,(because I am his laborer,i.e., hand me this, get this, etc.), needed to decide how to set it up,---right where I wanted it,-----which was/is, where my sloped,(up), driveway meets my cement sidewalk, along side of my house. Ugh,----but, he,(not me), figured out how to do it!. Long story, short, 5/8 inch,(diameter), hollow tube pipe, after being cut on the edges, to "open" them up a "bit", were placed into cement,(before hardened). Once solidified, the bottom part of the arbor was placed into the "tubes". After one day passed, we then placed the remainder of the arbor into the bottom section, and, "walaa"----perfecto.----SOLID as can be, and, yes looks terrific---. Because of the "slope", the lower side required longer tubes, and, yes, you can see the different "spacing" at the bottom of the arbor, but, it looks----fine.
Because of the many "reviews" that indicated some "rusting", after awhile, I used rustoleum, clear, "matte", spray paint,two coats, to prepare it for use, before I decide which climbing vine to use on it. Frankly, it looks soooo nice, as is, I almost hate to cover it with a vine, but, I know that will REALLY enhance it's beauty.
Some "reviews" said the color was/is bronze,some said it is black. Mine turned out to be a dark bronze,(almost brownish), and I thought I preferred black, but, it looks so nice, that i kept it's color, and it fits well with all the trees I have on the property.
Would I recommend it?----Oh YES----!-:)
