Inadequate instructions
Comments about Product:
Item was shipped and received promptly. Design of structure could have been better. No instructions were included, just pictures of how it is supposed to look. I had to take it apart several times due to poor design. Right and left tops are not identical. It was not possible to assemble alone, so it is half assembled waiting for some kind person to help me finish it. It is a sturdy arbor and I am looking forward to having it in place someday. I am interested in purchasing some of the matching pieces but wanted to have this in place before I make the decisions.

Really nice arbor
Comments about Product:
The arbor is a very dark brown, almost black. Really nice quality. I laid out all the pieces and made sure the designs in the borders were matching up - the scrolls reverse at the center of the top. Then everything just screws together really easily. I like this arbor a lot.

i love this arbor!
Comments about Product:
i thought this would have to be concreted in but it went in deep by a hammer and it looks lovely - this will organize my sweet peas and clematis so they won't be into everything and i love the gates, though 1 came apart in one place but it was an easy fix- getting one more soon!

looks great
Comments about Product:
I was searching for an arbor for my son's wedding, and I'm glad that I found this one. It was easy to transport in 3 or 5 pieces. It looked stylish, and stood without need for support during the ceremony. I will place it in my yard and use the gate. My friend who is a mechanic told me that I will need to replace the nuts that hold the gate in the hinges, so the gate will swing correctly. I also read that I will need to spray a clear coat of rustoleum to prevent rusting. I bought 2 spray cans and will use them when installing the arbor in my yard.

Lovely arbor but
Comments about Product:
When delivered the box had holes everywhere. Upon opening the hardware had just been in the box loose and 80% of the hardware was missing. I called and requested that all of the hardware be sent to me. Of course only a portion of the hardware was sent so rather than suffer further irritation with your company by placing a 3rd phone call we purchased the hardware locally. Of course that will have to be painted to match. I will never place another order with your company because even though the folks who took my call were very nice and apologetic I did not receive what I requested - the complete hardware.

Poor Quality Finish
Comments about Product:
I bought this arbor two years ago becaause it was the most attractive one I found, and also the most economical. However, the finish is of poor quality. It developed rust spots in a matter of weeks, even though I live in a dry climate. The bronze color oxidized to a dull gray after several months. The rusting has gotten worse over time. Be aware that the 84 inch height includes the stakes at the bottom. The frame is 3 inches wide, so burying the stakes will reduce the actual headroom to betwwen 75 and 78 inches.

Much improved!
Comments about Product:
They seem to have fixed the things other reviewers complained about. The screws now come screwed into their holes, not in a separate bag and a wrench the right size is included. The assembly instructions are still a little bare-bones so you have to look at the pictures carefully but they come in a waterproof bag fastened to the arch so they don't get lost. The outer packaging did disintegrate but I left the box outside in the rain for a year before I got around to it. And all components were well wrapped in plastic inside and weren't rusty. A few of the screws rusted enough to be hard to turn but what would you expect after leaving it out for a year? It's a little awkward to assemble by yourself. It looks great--now if I could just get some flowers to grow in the garden that it frames.

Beautiful entry to my garden!
Comments about Product:
I ordered this to be the entry to my garden. The garden is fenced with stock fencing to keep out the roaming cattle and the deer. I had to add garden fencing to the bottom of my fence to keep out the rabbits. I am tired of fencing, and was so excited when this arch/gate arrived. I put it together myself in pieces, then asked a friend to help me level it when I installed it. The picture was easy to follow, and it went together easily. I just love it - such a beautiful entry way into the garden. I want to put lights on it like one of the other customers did, but it is just pretty by itself. The packaging had a lot to be desired, but everything was there. You can't go wrong with this gate. I thought it might be too fancy, but it is just perfect!

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----!-:)

Third day up and rusting at joints
Comments about Product:
Took a lot of time to assemble and then half the nuts did not fit the screws. Put up Sat., rain Sunday, rust on Monday...very upsetting, now have to clean rust and seal and paint. Gate latch should be a good half inch longer, when wind blows gate opens. Needs some type of anchors to secure. The design is lovely and inviting. Staff was wonderful in working out an adjustment.

Great product!
Comments about Product:
The arbor arrived quickly after my order was placed, and was very easy to put together. It's really pretty, and we'll use it for a birthday party decoration in the driveway this weekend (it's lovely) and next week, we'll put it into the garden to hold our grapevine. I'd highly recommend this piece, whether you want it for decoration, or to actually "put it to work". It's both beautiful, and useful!

Not what I expected
Comments about Product:
This is 1 of 2 I ordered. The first one appears used and is scratched up showing bare metal. The finish is not bronze as discribed. The gate only opens one way and that is not explained on the site. I have not oppened the second yet.

Looks great at a reasonable price.
Comments about Product:
I use it at the front of a walkway to hold back 2 rose bushes. It does that and has a nice presentation as people approach the house. Directions left a bit to be desired. If you are not good at looking at "explosion" drawing and figuring out how to assemble, you may have a little difficulty. It looks very nice where it is and I am very pleased.

Tricky assembly but lovely!
Comments about Product:
I bought this arbor to use at the entry of the walkway to our home to replace one that eventually rusted through. It arrived packaged well. The bag of hardware was sealed but two pieces were missing, necessitating a trip to the hardware store to finish assembly. Speaking of assembly, take your time and think it through - the instructions are not great - photos only. Each part has a particular way to go but they look so much alike it is easy to make a mistake. The numbers of holes in each piece is the key to which one goes where. I put it together myself in about 2 hours. Since we live in a very wet climate, to prolong its life and to match the wrought iron accessories I have, I painted the pieces with Rustoleum satin black prior to putting it together and then applied a second coat once assembled. It turned out great!

Beautiful in my yard
Comments about Product:
I drooled over this arbor page in the catalog until I couldn't stand it any longer and ordered it later in the summer. I HAD to have the gate, too! It arrived quickly. Once I looked it over, I knew I couldn't assemble it by myself. The directions were not helpful but a friend and I got it together. It is black, not the bronze I wanted, but I certainly did not want to box it up to ship back! I love it as the entrance to my "secret garden". I also ordered the 400 LED solar lights and it takes your breath away as the sun sets and they come on. It is an asset to my overall yard/gardens. It is beautiful from every vantage point, including the upper level deck. A couple of drawbacks: it rusted some over just one winter and the gates are impossible to level.

Looks Great
Comments about Product:
Looked great the first year. This is the second year out and it is blistering and finish is gone. Still looks great from a distance. Need to scrap loose paint and re-paint. Did not expect to have to do this so soon. Would have clear coated had I known.

short but nice
Comments about Product:
The advertized 84" does not count the 7" that are designed to anchor the arch into the ground and the 2" decorative edging. With a 6'7" son, 6'2" daughter in law, 6'4" grandaughter, an arch that is 6'3" straddling the walkway from the garage is a major irritation. We are trying to brainstorm a different way of anchoring the arch so as not to lose the 7" but have not come up with anything yet. Would gladly pay for a 7' or higher arch, but this is the tallest arbor in the catalogue. Otherwise is a sturdy arch strong enough for climbing vines and maybe even roses if well anchored. The bronze color is darker than in the picture and very attractive.

Gate hinge rusted off 3 years after purc
Comments about Product:
I thought I had reviewed this product when I first got it, but did not find that review when I looked today. At the time I received it, I had found the assembly process to go less than smoothly, but otherwise liked the arbor. Three years later, it really is pretty if you don't look too close. It already looks like it needs a paint job. The finish is just not very durable. Unfortunately today, the hinge for the gait rusted off. I'm hoping to be able have this repaired, as I have several climbing roses growing on this, but of course I will need to pay for that repair. As pretty as it is, I probably wouldn't recommend this. If you decide to buy it anyway, you may want to consider painting it before allowing anything to climb up it so as to prolong the finish. It will be quite difficult for me to do this with climbing roses intertwined with the metal.

Not as good quality as obelisks
Comments about Product:
I love the Plow and Hearth obelisks and the one I bought first (several years ago) is just starting to show some finish wear at the top in the from of a little rush show-through. This trellis however, is chipping significantly after less than a year. I otherwise like it but am very disappointed that it looks so bad so quickly and that I'll have to paint it in the fall to see if I can make it look better.

Broken Heart Over Finish Fade
Comments about Product:
My story: One year ago we lost the shade of a most beloved oak tree that lived in our neighbors yard. They traded the life of a 100 or so year and dear old oak for a garage. We were stuck with a small full sun yard. Hoping to bring some height and eventual shade, i envisioned 3 Montebello Arbors with climbing roses. We love the arbors and have received a lot of compliments on the start of the project. Roses have overwintered fabulously, however, the arbors did not overwinter so well. They have turned a cloudy shade of gray. I am so broken hearted over this. We may have to paint them or else learn to live with this awful oxidized color. No hard feelings, just disappointment. Could a Northern Michigan winter or the hot sun last summer have anything to do with it?

Arbor Lives Up to Hype
Comments about Product:
Bought arbor for patio entrance. Plan to plant climbing roses to grow over it. Easy to assemble - looks great. Very sturdy. Arrived in a very battered box - had a couple of scrapes here and there, but nothing too serious. Overall, very happy with purchase.

Sturdy and practical
Comments about Product:
This product was somewhat difficult to put together. It took a litter hammering to make all the parts fit.I bought these because they have a rail on the inside that is the perfect height to use as a hand rail. I placed them over my three sets of stairs that lead to the pool. It was so much cheaper than custom hand rails and looks GREAT! I did add a little extra reinforcing to hold them in place, but they are very sturdy even without.

I hope it was an exception
Comments about Product:
Dear Friends, I like to be positive, but our experience with you was a bit unfortunate. The package arrived almost in shreds. As a result, all the hardware was missing having fallen out of the holes and rips in the box. The replacement hardware was sent "regular" mail and arrived over a week later. We finally put the gate together and, after only two weeks, here and there it has begun to rust. I know you are a very reputable company and so I trust this was an exception. But it makes me hesitant to buy from you again.

Product Quality good overall.
Comments about Product:
Arbor is a nice design and built well. Packaging was terrible. Parts were loose when the box arrived. The box was tattered and torn too. Needed to take a trip to hardware store for some nuts and bolts. This is the second one I purchased over the years and the first one was top quality and lasted years.
By HappyGardener

Lovely, but packaging fail
Comments about Product:
The bag that was supposed to contain the hardware had split, so that about half of the nuts and bolts had disappeared through holes in the corners of the box during shipping, requiring a trip to the hardware store to replace. Other than that, it's an attractive and sturdy entrance to my garden, and I'm very pleased with it now it's assembled.

A Good Value
Comments about Product:
I just bought this and assembled it by myself. It is easy to assemble, but you need to be careful that you have the arch parts pointing the the proper direction, as the parts look very similar, and you can easily put them together backwards. A good practice is to screw the parts together loosely and get everything assembled before you tighten everything down, so you can have some wiggle room to make them fit togther properly. I did not have any problems with chips or nicks in the paint, and the kit included the exactly correct number of nuts and screws. I can see where you might manage to strip them during assembly, but I did not have that problem. It looks very nice in my yard, and I have planted some clemantis next to the trellis to climb and cover the arch. I shopped a lot of sites before I purchased this trellis, and it proved a very good value for the price.

Montebello Iron Arbor by Plowhearth
Comments about Product:
I plan to put the arbor about 15 feet from my front door and grow climbing flowers, and guests will walk up my walk way through the gate, before walking up to my front door. The arbor is sturdy and decorative. The value is good, and it should stand the test of time. The only down is the color is not burnished bronze, as promised, but black. I'll learn to like it.

Sturdy and yet delicate
Comments about Product:
This arbor is beautiful with all its scrolls. The finish is coated steel, very smooth and even. It is very sturdy and should hold several heavy vines. The gate helps stabilize it against our winds. I am extremely pleased. Hopefully it will do well during our winter season.

Not a happy customer
Comments about Product:
After overcoming the issues with the order processing I received the arbor. This is my second purchase - loved the first one and thought another would look beautiful in my garden. I opened the box to begin to put together and found my order did not contain package of nuts and bolts. Needless to say it prompted another call to customer service. The agent was very accommodating and apologetic and indicated they would be shipped. This is day 3 and still no delivery! What happened to your customer service!! Will have to think twice before I order from you in the future. Never experienced such poor service in the past. Extremely disappointed.

Rusted!
Comments about Product:
I bought this product about a year ago and was really happy with it. Recently I was walking by it and noticed the "rust proof" hardware was completely rusted and lots of paint had chipped off the arbor and the metal underneath was rusting. It made me so sad. I wanted to double check that it was meant for outdoors and that's when I saw the "rustproof" description in the catalog. I'm going to be calling them to see if there's anything I can do. I do love the way it looks, so I would have happily put a protective spray on it or something if it had recommended that.

Poor construction
Comments about Product:
Lovely but disappointed with construction. Pieces don't fit together so whole arbor is crooked. Too much work to disassemble and ship back. This is the second product that I have bought from plow and hearth that has not been of quality. They certainly have gone down hill. I think they count on you not returning it!

Rusting gate after just a few months
Comments about Product:
Very disappointed to find that the double gate of the arbor is rusting with pieces of metal coating coming of in strips from the curved decorative parts of the gate. Gates are also weathering an entirely different color than the rest of the arbor. We have had this arbor less than six months, so this should not be happening.

Expected better quality for this price
Comments about Product:
This arbor was easy to assemble, and would have been quite attractive if there weren't at least a half dozen pieces with substantial chips out of the paint (as in the photo). I'm assuming that with all that bare metal exposed to the elements, I'll soon have a (really rather expensive) *rusty* garden arch. Quite disappointing!

A nice addition to my garden
Comments about Product:
Not difficult to put together, but there were lots of pieces and only picture instructions. It's a little tricky to set level and square with the gate, but worth the effort. If you want all the pieces to match in colour - that won't happen - but vines will distract fro mthe mismatched colours. The gate latch is poorly designed, but otherwise I am happy with it.

Beautiful Arbor
Comments about Product:
My husband and I put this together in about an hour. Directions are minimal, but it's pretty simple to figure out. It was helpful to have a picture from the catalog to guide us. All of our parts and hardware were included and everything was in good condition. We had a homemade arbor years ago and it's so nice to have another one once again. Very pretty! We got it on sale so it was a good deal too and fast shipping.

'Stylish Addition To Any Garden
Comments about Product:
This is a beautiful addition to our landscape. Don't get me wrong...it was a bit of a challenge to assemble, but you have to be patient and look over the directions and at the hardware before starting. It took about 2 hours from start to finish and then my husband helped me carry it to its place in the garden. I didn't get the gate because I wanted to add a stone path through the middle. The picture shows the results. Well worth the money, especially because I was able to purchase it at the sale price!

My daughter and I put the arbor together easily. The very last nut to put on didn't have threads but, fortunately we had just the right size in the kitchen "junk" drawer. :) We are very pleased with the look and quality...in fact, I am awaiting delivery of a second matching arbor...this one with a gate; and all working nuts. I would definitely recommend this product and Plow & Hearth.

Looks great but poor construction
Comments about Product:
Six of the frame holes were unthreaded and too large for the bolts supplied. I bought six self-tapping larger bolts from [@]and completed the assembly with those. I will paint the new bolts black so, from a distance, I hope the necessary modifications won't be visible. Other than these problems, the arch looks great and is a value compared with what's available locally.

We bought this arbor without the gate to frame a wall fountain mounted on a stone wall. It matches the color perfectly. I looked all over the Internet for arbors, and this was the best price by far for the size, quality and materials. It was super easy to assemble. There was one screw that didn't have the phillips head machined into the screw, but we managed to just screw it in by hand. It is plenty sturdy, especially since it is up against a wall. I will plant roses and other vines to cover it. It looks beautiful and is exactly what I wanted. I'm excited to see how pretty it looks when the plants get big!

Love it!
Comments about Product:
The trellis was even nicer than the picture. It took me about two hours to put together by myself. The instructions were not the greatest and I was missing one screw but I live about 3 blocks from a hardware store, so I went down and bought a package of two screws and finished putting it together. All in all, I'm very happy with it.

Beautiful arbor/gate. Read on...
Comments about Product:
Really, the only thing wrong was some unpainted areas. May have happened in shipping since the parts were not wrapped properly. One of the main reasons I purchased this was because it claimed to be powder coated...I don't think so. Other than having to spray paint it, it is beautiful. It takes center stage in my garden. I love it.

So far, so good.
Comments about Product:
This garden arch is installed in our garden landscape. The instructions which came with the arch leaved a lot to be desired and two inserts at the top of the arch were missing. There was no parts listing with the instructions and the screws supplied do not seem that strong and long lasting. Also, the spikes into the ground are only 7 inches which seems minimal. Would recommend that these be extended to 12 inches for greater stability. The latch for the gate also needs to be longer. Never-the-less, the arch is up and it looks quite attractive. The question now is how long lasting it will be and will it stand up to the elements of both summer and winter. Too early to tell as it was just set up.

Wonderful Sturdy Arbor
Comments about Product:
This arbor fits all requirements. It is decorative, useful, and can compete with other arbors that are much higher priced. I bought one and liked it so much I bought another. It looks good whereever I put it, even just standing there (with gates) and no where to go. I would definitely say if you are looking for an arbor, this one will meet your needs.

It's so pretty & just what we needed!
Comments about Product:
We bought the bronze arbor with gate. It wasn't difficult to get together and after securing it into the ground it is sturdy enough. The gate latch lines up perfectly. We are using it to enter our backyard from a new paver walkway and the gate keeps our little dog in. When it arrived there was one scroll on one side of the gate which was missing, we had not noticed but found out when our dog got out. After calling the company, they were wonderful to work with and quickly shipped us another gate. We were looking at having to spend much more for just a regular gate and this is so much prettier & functional. Couldn't be happier with it.

I've dreamed of having an Arbor like this one and now my dream has come true. There were a couple of issues but the customer service personnel were very quick to respond, they were totally awesome, especially Tiffany. I am now planning to purchase the matching fence. My husband had the arbor assembled in less than 20 minutes. Thank you Plow & Hearth

Beautiful Arbor - some issues w/set up
Comments about Product:
First of all...SUPER FAST SHIPPING! A+ for that. I was able to put this together in a couple of hours by myself with only a few common tools. The primary issue(s) I had with with the set up was that many of the parts and pieces were cut sloppy and not flush with each other. No matter how tight you wrench the screws, they will not be flush. A couple of the support bars were overdrilled for threading screws so that was an inconvenience. I had to use defference screws and paint them to match the arbor. I have tried and tried, but the gates will not line up either, and I'm sure that has to do with some of the pieces not fitting properly. Either way, it looks very pretty. No regrets on the purchase. The design is beautiful but the craftsmanship needs some serious improvement.

Very attractive but poorly engineered -
Comments about Product:
I installed the arbor fairly easily, assembly took longer than expected but not bad. Looks very attractive, but 3 days after installing, all the welds attaching the decorative iron scroll work of the gate panel next to the hinges (side with the fastening latch) failed and the scroll fell off. Examination of the 4 broken weld points showed poor workmanship and it was clear that only 3 of the weld spots were ever actually holding. This is not acceptable and I need and expect a replacement gate panel to be sent to me as soon as possible. Also, the sliding bolt used to latch the two door panels together when the gate is closed is too short and does not allow the two gate panels to close securely.

not bad for $. Don't expect "wow!"
Comments about Product:
This isn't mil-spec, so don't expect perfection. Up close, the finish quality is meh, from a distance not bad. Cheap philips screws are supplied where hex-bolts should be. Offset drivers helpful. 2 offset nut drivers are very helpful in mounting the gates. The assembly instructions need adaptation of your own, out of necessity.

Comments about Product:
We would of used the Arbor in our flower bed, which would be used to hold a bird house etc, but found it not durable and would never hold up.

works for what i need
Comments about Product:
I used the arch with gate to keep my lab husky out of an enclosed garden. I just placed it in with the coordinating trellis and will know more on how it weathers later. (location CO) works fine for keeping dog out. Two people to setup due to size. only issue I have is since my landscaping is angled, i have to even out by placing feet in ground. we get high winds so i hope this holds up. i also got this at [$] on sale so it is more than worth it.

Nice arbor. Ridiculous company.
Comments about Product:
I ignored the reviews of previous people who recounted stories about missing parts and just general quality issues. It took me several months to finally stand my arbor up in my yard. It is straightforward to install, once you have all of the proper parts and they are not damaged. Basically P&H had to deliver two complete arbors to me to successfully assemble 1 arbor.

Wonderful Arbor!
Comments about Product:
We put our arbor between two raised beds, over an entry walkway to our small urban backyard. It fits perfectly with our victorian-era row house. I thought the assembly was easy: just study the pieces carefully and the very simple (not a lot of detail) instructions will make sense. (Tip: at each stage of assembly put all the screws in part-way, before tightening the screws. This will make sure the pieces fit and give a sturdy final product.) Despite the easy assembly the only problem I had was with assembly: one of the screw holes had not been cut. But it was easy to drill a hole even with my unprofessional drill.

Where are the screws?
Comments about Product:
The product comes with two different types of screws. While one type (with the nuts) came in a plastic bag, we couldn't find the others set of 36. We looked and looked all over the garage, dug out the trash etc. It would have been nice if the instructions stated that the screws were screwed into the ends of the bars. They weren't easy to see at all! Plus, we had to spend the time taking them out - they're long screws! Would certainly have preferred that these 36 screws were also in a plastic bag. Also, nowhere in the directions does it say to make sure that you put the sides together the same way - that is, with them either inset or not. It would look funny if you didn't figure that out before you had it all together.

Good for short people.
Comments about Product:
Had to buy two to make tall enough for me to walk through. Good if you are 5 foot tall. Tried to get more side panels, but no response from Plow and Hearth. So to make it right had to buy two. Now I have spare parts. Decent construction, but don't buy unless a small person. Cannot handle heavy climbing vines such as Whistera, but thin vines will be OK.

Nice, but you better be good at assembly
Comments about Product:
This arbor is attractive and seems to be good quality, holding up very well after one season. My autumn clematis is exuberantly tumbling over it. However, I have to laugh.. because it was a pain in the derriere to assemble!! The guide, which I always follow, and my husband doesn't.. had us working at it together, scratching our heads, for quite some time. The assembly directions are very brief and not detailed at all. Some of the parts were broken(male/female)..and it was hard to distinguish the pieces.. but we still managed to get it together between the two of us. I would only buy this if you are up to a bit of a challenge of putting it together.

Dissapointed
Comments about Product:
This is a beautiful piece from about twenty feet away. It takes two people to install and is a little flimsy. The steaks only go a few inches in the ground and provide very little stability. The best compliment is that is was a cost effective alternative to what might have been a better choice. The three stars are based on looks minus the rust!

I needed more assembly instructions
Comments about Product:
I bought the gate part to keep the dog from going through the alley-- but I had a hard time getting the arbor to stay level and to work with the locking device. The color was good, but I wish it were taller. I had a limited space in width, so it does correspond well to the width. It was difficult for me to put together by myself. I really nneded another pair of hands to hold it steady when assembling the arch. We also discovered that we were short some screws. WhenI called to say we were having difficulty, the person who responded was very understanding and tried to help me out by sending another arbor to exchange. I really needed better assembly instructions.

"Rusty"
Comments about Product:
The arbor was used as an entryway to my backyard. I purchased this product while visiting Virginia. When I arrived home and removed it from the box, I noticed the ground stakes were not included and the gate had scratches. It has been 3 years and the whole thing is rusted and the metal is splitting. If I lived close to a retail store, I would have returned this product. Very disappointing for the price.

Rust
Comments about Product:
I was very excited when the arbor arrived. Due to the dimensions of my sidewalk I had to have the arbor anchored into the cement walkway. It truly adds a lovely cottage garden look to my tiny city yard, however within weeks the latch area on the gate has rusted. The response I got from P&H was to sand and paint the entire arbor, since it would be impossible to match the color. Very disappointed, would not recommend the gate with the arbor.

Used to replace a "twig/branch" arbor located in a wooded/country area leading to a path in the woods.it fits in nicely with the surrounding and the "autumn joy" vine is wrapping itself nicely.

Easy set up, Nice looking, and Sturdy!
Comments about Product:
My Labs love eating plants so I have my gardens fenced off. I am using this arbor to train my Wysteria and lock out my dogs. We have previously placed structures that caused us to place the arbor just slightly askew (not even noticeably). My only issue with this lovely and sound structure is that if it is not placed exactly right the slide lock opens and so do the gates. I'm using a small chain to keep it closed.

Great looking arbor!
Comments about Product:
I placed the arbor between my parking area outside my garage, and my back yard. The arbor strattles a brick paver walkway that enters the yard and goes around a porch. There are arborvitae on both sides of the walkway, separating the parking area from the yard. I planted a climbing rose on one side of the arbor and honeysuckle on the other. I have clamatis on both sides as well. It makes for a grand entry into my back yard area. The arbor was not difficult for me to assemble, as I understand how most things are built. The instructions however could be a bit clearer for those without such knowledge. Although I rated it 5 stars because I am very pleased with it at this time, it is too soon to know how durable a product it is. I will update this again next year with some more information on durability. It also would not hurt if it was a bit taller as I can picture the canopy of roses,clamatis,and honeysuckle intruding on the clearance for walking under the arbor,(at least for those of us over 6'). I get lots of compliments on it!

Inferior welds
Comments about Product:
While assemblying, one of the welds on two different brackets broke loose. I'm concerned about others doing the same.

Comments about Product:
I purchased the arbor a year ago it is exactly what the magizine described. I had not problem putting it together and it has kept my dog and children in the yard. However, I found that one of the gate welds broke after it being used frequently this past year. I called P&H and they replaced the abor- I never dreamed they would do this- I am completely a satisfied customer. so much so, I purchased additional fencing and my garden expanded. Thank you!

Pretty to look/bad gate closure
Comments about Product:
This is a lovely design and nice to look at but the gate closure is completely inadequate. We had to spend an additional $70.00 at a welding shop so that the gate will REMAIN closed. The latch on the gate is worthless. Assembly is rather time consuming but it is a lovely design but the extra expense and trouble with the gate has made this a rather unpleasant experience. I would recommend the arbor but not the gate.

Fooled on the Height
Comments about Product:
Thanks to the advice in previous reviews, I was able to assemble the arbor without much difficulty. My biggest frustration was that the height listed included the 4" intended to be pushed into the ground. I plan to place the arbor in front of a door on a side of my house. If I push the arbor into the ground enough to stabilize it, then the arbor is shorter than the door and certainly does not look attractive. Since neither my husband or I are carpenters or have many tools, I will have to hire someone to extend the legs enough to hold the arbor secure against the house and still be higher than the door. I was also surprised at the bronze color, as I thought it would be black, but do like this color.

I love the size, design and construction of this arbor. It was a bit challenging to assemble as the directions left much to the imagination. It fit perfectly over my a/c unit in the garden and the clematis is beginning to climb.

I also purchased the matching trellis and scroll edging (they didn't have matching edging). I live in hot hot hot Arizona, and, sadly, the beautiful powder coat finish of the Montebello products has faded and now looks very chalky (the scroll edging looks great, but it wasn't purchased until after the extreme heat of last summer). I still love everything, though, and the vines that will eventually cover it will hide most of the now dull finish. I must mention that many metal products fade here in the blazing sun - the ones that do not are super expensive. So, in short, I highly recommend this arbor, but if you live where the sun bakes everything and you can fry an egg on the sidewalk in summer, just be sure you can live with the eventual chalky finish!

Hey! It's NOT BLACK!
Comments about Product:
Wow, the description doesn't state the color, and I assumed it is black, as the picture looks that way to me. Also, the description evokes the assumption it is black, as it uses the term "wrought iron," which I believe is always black. The description does state it is tubular iron, so that was not surprising, but the brown "bronze" color was a disappointment.

Arbor with gate needs better directions
Comments about Product:
The Montebello Iron Arbor with Gate is a very attractive and seemingly durable structure. However, there are no written directions-- only pictures which unfortunately fail to show front, back, inside facing, outside facing etc. It would be easy to include written directions to avoid having to take part of the arbor apart after realizing it was put together in the wrong direction. Also, there is nothing to stabilize the structure after it is assembled. I pounded four four foot pieces of rebar in the four corners and attached them with Ubolts. Good luck

Pros: Looks great, easy to assemble. Cons: After one winter the bottom of the vertical pieces are starting to show rust. May need a spray paint touch up!

No Stakes but Great
Comments about Product:
I was impressed with the style & quality of this arbor. What I don't understand is why the description says that it: "Comes with 7" ground stakes to ensure stability" We searched for these additional stakes but they were no where in the packaging. That was part of our reasoning to purchase this product because it had this accessory, But there are none- all it amounts to is the 'legs' have a pointed ends so they can be pushed into the ground. It just a deception that there is something extra included when actually they are just part of the arbor. Other wise it seems like a great product.

A little disappointed
Comments about Product:
The arbor was very lovely...but, the legs split during the winter so now we have to replace it. I don't know what the solution is to prevent this problem, but it was very disappointing to see this happen. If this problem had not occurred, I would have given this a 5 star rating.

The arbor and gate is easy to assemble once thoroughly looking at the 1 page assembly sheet. Fits perfect where I measured it to go, and the design is nice. Should look beautiful once my uncrontrollable Morning Glory starts to take over, and covers it.

Not so simple to put together
Comments about Product:
I bought this arbor to be placed in front of our gate to our fenced in pool area as a visual focal point. The arbor as such does look good except that I did not consider that our walkway is somewhat at an angle and the arbor looks akwardly place. Our fault thou for not thinking about this.I have put many boxed furniture items together and this arbor was definitley one of the more difficult items to put together. We had to take pieces apart many times to get it right. Eventually we did get it together.

Iron arbor is very striking
Comments about Product:
This arbor took a reasonable amount of time to put together. It is a little awkward to completely assemble indoors but since it was so hot outside, I assembled the top arch, each of the two sides and then took it outside to finish putting it together. You need to look carefully to get the decorative scroll work on the outside of the arbor. If you do it wrong, most people probably would not notice. There is a clear diagram for the parts, but there is a right and wrong side to each of the narrow pieces and the directions do not mention this. The side panels do not have a right and wrong side. The directions say/show nothing about assembling it correctly, but I read it in someone else's review--thought I would repeat it because it was very useful for me. This arbor weighs about 50 pounds. It is very sturdy and has about 5 inches of metal at the bottom to put into the ground. I am using this over a climbing rosebush instead of as an arch through which to walk. The trellis for my rosebush had broken, and the bush is huge. I have woven the bush through the arbor and can't wait until next spring to see the arbor covered in flowers when the rosebush blooms. This arbor is relatively free standing even though the bottom is only in the ground a little bit. I would be concerned if I had this arbor standing out in the open and would probably use angular tent stakes to reinforce the way it is held into the ground. In my situation, I don't need to do this. I don't think I hurricane could take out the rosebush and it is completely woven into the arbor.

For what it's worth....
Comments about Product:
As a Landscape Architect, I am by nature very picky when it comes to landscaping, and landscaping products, always concerned with form and function but with visuals as well. So I found myself avoiding this originally due to the price. Figuring it just couldn't be any good. The ones I had seen around at various stores in that price or range were usually cheaply made and even cheaper looking. But I took a flyer, and found myself putting a lot of credence into the reviewers comments mentioning durability. Please at this time let me give a shoot out to all those reviews, and have to say they hit the nail on the head. I was literally taken back by the strength of materials, iron wall thickness, joint welding, and powder coating finish. I guess I didn't want to admit it to myself, but I had set my expectations so low so that I wasn't disappointed. Well that concern now couldn't be farther from the fact. Secondly, it would be bad enough to be disappointed on this item for a customer's job (to fit the budget and all), but then be able to walk away while you tell yourself I won't use that product again. But here's the kicker. I was ordering it for my own yard. So not only would I not be able to "get away", all our friends and family would judge me by it as well. Well I can now close my eyes and sleep soundly, because again, the quality, strength, design I know I will be happy with this decision for many years to come. The only con listed, was the so-so instructions (and I read plans for a living!), but I was able to quickly recover the 2 or 3 times it wasn't clear, and still built and installed it in 45 minutes. Final note, one of the features I did like were the gates, at least for me, I wasn't paying much for the ability to have them. Because I don't know long much longer I will need to use them for my dog. But when the time comes, that I don't need them any longer than a quick removal and I don't have a couple hundred dollars be unused in the garage. Great product, Fantastic price. Get one, you will be so happy.

Gorgeous Arbor
Comments about Product:
This is a BEAUTIFUL arbor! Well-built, very sturdy, seems like it will last forever! I've had others and they fell apart after 18 months. This should withstand wind! The instructions were hard to follow. There is only one way it will go together, although it appears it should not matter since it is symmetrical. I suggest very long stakes. My husband mounted it with rebar that he heated and curved and drove deep into the ground. I will plant groundcover so they won't show. Can't wait to have my climbing roses ascend up and over!

We installed this arbor over a 46" wide walkway. It was really easy to put together. The directions just have pictures (no written description) but my kids helped look at the pictures and find the right parts. We just put in a clematis on each side to climb over the top. It looks great and seems very sturdy.

After looking around, I decided that your product was the best..and I got it on sale; an added bonus!

I had been thinking about ordering one for a while and then our daughter planned her wedding outside. I ordered it for the wedding, which ended up being inside. The arbor was easy enough to move into our great room and we decorated it with flowers and it made a great staging for the wedding. It is very well-made, sturdy and lovely to look at.

Very good value
Comments about Product:
I was able to screw this together in around half an hour. It is possible to reverse a couple of components, like the side panels, but even if a mistake is made, it is easily corrected. The ground where I live can be hard, so I had to dig holes for the stakes rather than just pushing them into the ground, but the arbor seems stable now that I have dug it in. This product looks nicer, and costs much less, than many others I've seen.

Gorgeous and sturdy arbor
Comments about Product:
This arbor was a Mother's Day gift this year from my hubby and daughter, who knew I wanted to add a second rose garden to our yard. It sat in the box in the garage until Memorial Day, when the new garden was ready for it. For the most part I was able to assemble the thing myself without incident. The instructions are in form of a detailed drawing, which if followed closely, were easy enough. We hit a minor problem with some of the pieces, which have a "male" section inserted into a "female" section, and then bolted in place. In two or three of these joints, they simply did not fit. This was solved by prying open the female part somewhat (and the metal is good quality, so this wasn't easy) and filing down the male portion. Even with these problems, the whole process took under an hour, and the arbor really is as pretty as the picture. I plan to have two Dublin Bay climbing roses grow on it, and I have no doubt that it will be sturdy enough. I've been looking at various arbors for over a year, including ones at [...]. Of those that I've been able to examine in person (all but the [...]) this is a more solid and stable arbor for the price, and far more attractive than anything [...] has to offer. Since it will likely be several years before my Dublin Bay roses cover the thing and it will look quite bare for awhile, the fact that it is attractive in its own right is an important consideration. Even with the slight assembly snafu, I'm considering buying another one of these for another area of our yard, and would also consider a matching trellis or two. I hope Plow and Hearth will continue to offer this line for a few years, so that I can get all the other pieces I'd like. Maybe another Mother's Day hint will need to be dropped. ;-)

I absolutely love my new arbor.
Comments about Product:
I was lucky enough to have someone help me to assemble the arbor,but once it was up, I just loved the uniqueness of it. It is charming and seemingly indestructible. I have had wooden arbors in the past that did not last more than a few years. My clematis and morning glories have attached themselves already and are as happy as I am to claim this addition to our gardens..

This Arbor is the entry way into my garden space. One cross support member was missing and on part was incorrect. I was able to correct the error with out returning the product.

Sturdy arbor, but wish it was taller
Comments about Product:
I purchased the Montebello arbor with gates to go over the beginning of the walkway that leads up to my front door. It is an attractive and very stable arbor, with a great price, however it does have a flaw. The 84" height included the part that gets stuck in the ground, so it is actually only about 6 feet tall once it's installed. My husband is 6'4" tall and my plan was to grow a climbing rose over it. I ended up having to modify it by mounting it in metal pipe stuck in the ground. This added about a foot to the height and it's just as stable, although the gate now looks like a saloon door. But at least I don't have to worry about anyone getting thorns stuck in their head. If they modified this product by adding a foot to the height, I would give it 5 stars.

Well made & good looking
Comments about Product:
It went on SALE right after I bought it and customer service said there was nothing they could do. Very sad I paid $50 more! That being said, sturdy construction; went together fairly easily but I recommend having a wood block handy to use when thwacking the pieces together. And, the pieces are NOT interchangeable so if they don't fit one way, try reversing. Box arrived very dinged up and the arch had a 3" chip/scrape in the finish which I will need to touch up to avoid rust but overall I am very pleased.
