All About Alumawood Arbors

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 21 April , 2021

Looking for new ways to beautify and improve your backyard space? We have a suggestion: Alumawood arbors. These gorgeous additions can bring a dynamic new element to your yard and transform it into the garden of your dreams. If you’re not familiar with these attractive additions, keep reading.

What’s an arbor?

An arbor is like a doorway welcoming visitors into your flowering garden or backyard oasis. It’s a freestanding structure that serves as an entrance and can be large enough to place for small benches or a seating area underneath. Arbors have 2 to 4 posts and usually arch upwards at the top. Many arbors have lattices on either side, making it easy for vines to crawl upwards, adding a beautiful, natural look to the arbor. Popular plants for this include climbing roses and honeysuckle.

If you’ve been to a wedding recently, you very well may have seen an arbor. They’re a very popular trend right now, as they create a place for the couple to stand underneath. It’s a stunning focal point that can be decorated with an assortment of flowers and draping fabric. Imagine incorporating the stunning elements of this kind of arbor into your backyard to enjoy year-round.

What is Alumawood?

The definition of Alumawood is hinted at in the name: it’s an aluminum material that has been expertly manufactured to resemble wood, more specifically cedar. It’s perfect for those who want beautiful backyard structures, but aren’t necessarily interested in incorporating high-maintenance wooden elements.

Alumawood is an attractive, low-maintenance option when it comes to gardening. It doesn’t look artificial, and there’s no need to worry about the aesthetics: Alumawood can be incorporated into any style of backyard.

Combine these two elements and boom! You have the ever-popular Alumawood arbor. You can make it as stylish or simple as you’d like in order to reflect the style of your yard, and we can help you fit it in throughout the rest of your landscape design.


One of the great benefits of Alumawood is that it lasts significantly longer than wood does. You most likely won’t need to replace it for many years, if ever.

Alumawood won’t warp or bend as wood does, and you don’t have to worry about bug infestations. This is a huge plus for those who have had to deal with pest control in their backyards! With a wood arbor, you have to focus on upkeep and preventing critters from invading the wood. This can be a pain, especially when you want something simple to enjoy. You won’t need to invest time in upkeep and maintenance on your Alumawood arbor.

Lastly, in case of emergency, you don’t have to worry about Alumawood arbors catching fire.

Why install an Alumawood arbor?

What are some of the reasons people include Alumawood arbors in their yard and gardens? As mentioned above, they add a nice stylish element to the entrance of your yard or garden.

If you have a secluded nook on your property that you want to feel inviting, and Alumawood arbor can be an ideal addition for the entrance of that area.

If you want a shady place to sit in your yard, an Alumawood arbor can be the perfect spot.

The possibilities of what you can do with an Alumawood arbor are plentiful, and we’d be happy to incorporate one into your landscape design! Reach out to Juniper and see how we can put our expertise to work for you.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
