But there's a great difference in most people's attitude toward these two areas of their lives. Every so often they will decide to give their rooms a new look: refinish the walls, replace drapes and window coverings, move the furniture around or change it completely. Out with the old, in with the new. But rare is a major overhaul of the yard or gardenscape. A garden, once established, usually changes very little over the years and whatever changes are made come gradually. There will be a few trial plantings from season to season, or a flower bed will be moved to gain better sun or more shade. A once-attractive shrub will wither or become ungainly and have to be replaced. For the garden reflects the more serene and contemplative side of our personality. A good part of the joy we take in our garden comes from its continuity, from watching the annual cycle of blossoming and transitions of color and foliage with its reassurance that this part of our life, at least, will remain unchanging. Among the more acceptable changes vgiat can be made to a garden with little effort and without disturbing its continuity is by adding an arbor. Not only does an arbor provide an attractive accent in itself, it affords an opportunity for a dramatic display of one or more of the romantic old-fashioned climbing roses or the many new varieties of clematic or other flowering vines. Or it can be situated so that it frames the entry to your garden or a special vista. While ready-made arbors are available in metal, plastic and wood at garden supply stores, nurseries and home centers, the problem. Not only is craftsman-grade lattice not easily available but it requires special care in cutting and fitting in making as assembly. The alternative of having it custom built can be a spendy proposition even if you can locate a neighborhood carpenter who will take on a small job a vanishing breed all across America. The best approach, and the one that offers the most attractive results and the best value, is to assemble an arbor from one of the packaged kits produced under the Woodway and Arboria names by the LWO Corp. and available nationally through lawn and garden supply Stores and departments. They are offered in a variety of styles, the most popular being the classic round-top or the straight-topped pergola model shown in our photos. All models are nicely detailed and well-constructed of premium grade Western Red Cedar, a species nature has made so resistant to rot and insects that it does not require chemical treatment. Red cedar is also an attractive wood, warm in color, which takes paint or stains very well or can be left unfinished to weather to a soft gray which is particularly attractive in the casual or rustic garden. The unskilled do-it-yourselfer can assemble one of these arbors in about an hour using only a screwdriver. The latticed side panels are pre-assembled at the factory, and full detailed instructions are provided. You can paint these smoothly-finished arbors, stain them or apply a clear coat if you prefer. Careful application of any finish is best done prior to assembly, and will take longer than putting them together. Unlike the industrial-looking plastic version, with their glassy finish and mechanical aura, Arboria and Woodway Cedar arbors seem at home, attractive and unobtrusive, in the garden setting. While you can do your final assembly of your arbor adjacent to where it is to be finally located, it may not be a convenient spot to work in. But these units are light in weight They can be assembled in a practical location and readily moved to the chosen spot.

The Team That Works For You! more enterprising do-it-yourselters may wish to build it themselves. You can buy sets of plans but while a small arbor is a I tast simple structure it is not an easy project to build from scratch. It requires not only superior carpentry skills but also lots of tools and you'll have to run around to pick up the lumber needed for a quality job.
