PVC arbors are superior to metal or wooden garden arbors from a maintenance perspective. You never have to paint or stain them and most manufacturers warranty their vinyl arbors against yellowing, cracking or warping.
Because the pieces are already "finished" when they arrive at your home, you can assemble a PVC arbor in minutes.
If you are installing the arbor prior to a special event like a party or wedding, you don't have to worry about the mess that paints and sealants can make or wait for them to dry. You can decorate the structure immediately.
Most vinyl arbors are white. They are usually designed to resemble painted wood. If you want the look of natural wood, you will probably not find a PVC arbor that suits you. If you want a black arbor, metal arbors will be a better choice for you.
Vinyl also keeps looking new for a long time. It will not
weather to a soft gray color the way an unsealed wooden garden arbor
would. This may be a plus or minus depending on your outlook.

Some vinyl arbors look more like painted wood than others. This is one of the classiest PVC arch arbors I have seen. It just does not look like vinyl.
I also like the way it has been placed into this landscape: at a fork in the path.
This heightens your sense of expectation.
It not only draws your eye but makes you wonder what you will see if you choose that path.
The large ornamental grasses and shrubs preserve the mystery by partially obscuring your view of the plants and structures which lie further along the path.
This garden arbor trellis is also available without the wings but the wings make it so much more striking. They also give you lots more vertical growing space.
