In Oak Bluffs, MA, Walpole Outdoors crafted this spectacular, low maintenance AZEK cellular PVC for the cafe at the Farm Neck Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard.
Measuring 86 feet long overall, with a 32 foot radius beam, the pergola has twenty-one 8 inch square posts and three apexes. Walpole created a cavity in select joists in the apexes, allowing wire to travel through the columns and connecting to lights that illuminate the pathway and the overall structure. The combination of Walpole’s CAD department, in house metal fabrication, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and expert installation, resulted in a substantial custom pergola that was completed for use by the golf course earlier than originally estimated.
Outdoor structures are an easy way to enhance the natural beauty of your home or garden, enhance your landscaping and create an inviting atmosphere. A structure also serves as a visual focal point that can really add a boost to your home’s curb appeal and be the basis for an area of visual interest you can build upon. Though all structures accomplish this none do so quite as easily as a classic arbor.
Arbors can be used along with fencing and gates, hedges and perimeter landscaping, footpaths, or just by itself to establish an entryway to a garden area. The structures are versatile and have a simple elegance. Choose a graceful arch top or a flat pergola top with or without lattice panels.
One of the best things about an arbor is it’s simplicity. Here are a few standard arbor designs that can fit into virtually any outdoor area…
With its handsome good looks, the Plantation Arbor is always an inviting attraction, no matter where it is located in the garden. It measures 6-feet wide with 4-inch square vinyl posts and three sturdy carrying beams. The horizontal/vertical lattice side panels are 6-feet high with 2½ inch openings. Sold with our comfortable 4-foot Hyannis porch swing which is crafted from low maintenance recycled material.
This wide arbor looks great with a swing or just to frame a larger entryway. Utilize the lattice panels and pergola style top to grow vertically!
Standard Spindle Top Arbor
If your vision for an arbor includes a graceful arch the Standard Spindle Top Arbor is your best bet.
This arbor is the classic look that many homeowners envision for their homes. The arched top is flanked by two lattice side panels that compliment any style fencing and can be used as an anchor to climbing plants of any variety.
This design looks great with a fence and gate but can also be a great addition to a stone or gravel footpath to create a little bit of whimsy.
Crafted in AZEK cellular PVC with 4-inch square posts with 3 1/2 inch square arch. 5-foot high horizontal/vertical lattice side panels with 38-inch depth.
Standard Garden Arbor
Walpole arbors make a grand entrance no matter the architecture of your home or where you choose to locate them. Our standard 6-foot wide Garden Arbor has 4-inch square posts, and a 4-inch square decorative carrying beam. The impressive pergola-style top is complemented by horizontal/vertical lattice side panels.
The Garden arbor is handcrafted in low maintenance AZEK cellular PVC. This advanced vinyl has the weight and look of natural wood, yet it won’t rot, warp, or crack, and will hold its pristine looks for years with little-to-no effort required.
While we offer a wide selection of standard arbors, we will work with your ideas to create the perfect customized structure to meet your location, taste, and needs. Our arbors are factory prepainted so there no mess during installation.
Handcrafted by Walpole Outdoors in AZEK, this superb pergola is for the outdoor seating area at Lulu’s restaurant in Boston The 10’ H. columns are 8” square and are secured with steel pipes in the base.
For added comfort, there are manually retractable Shade FX canopies. The surrounding Universal board fence and gate are crafter in stained verde cedar. The privacy fencing has been constructed to sit atop the restaurant’s stone wall where necessary.
This setup gives the restaurant ample space to host outdoor diners and enough coverage to withstand rainy and sunny days alike. An outdoor canopy pergola is a great investment for any restaurant looking to add tables without taking away from the atmosphere of the main dining area.
The Mohawk House in Sparta, New Jersey, chose Walpole to create a structure that would invite outdoor dining, while enhancing the restaurant’s warm atmosphere and visually appealing setting. Expansive Walpole pergolas are allowing restaurants nationwide to provide additional seating more quickly and perhaps more cost-effectively than a full-blown build-out expansion project.
By creating a light and airy outdoor room, a Walpole pergola affords businesses and homeowner alike many opportunities to be creative with the space. Whether it includes dining tables and chairs, relaxed seating areas, or elaborate outdoor bars and kitchens, the options are almost limitless.
While Walpole pergolas create a dynamic sense of space and openness, they are also extremely functional. This structure features double shade canopies. The motor drive operation allows the canopy to be closed quickly as the push of a button, protecting diners and staff from harsh, direct sunlight, or drizzling rain.
A monorail drive beam supports each canopy in the middle with “wings” that suspend the fabric. This unique design solution allows the rain to drain to the sides, rather than pool in the middle. During this party, when light rain began to fall, the canopies were quickly closed, and the event continued without disruption.
Adding some charm and interest to your home or garden doesn’t have too be difficult or even too expensive. You can go big or small with something geometric or with romantic curves. Lattice panels come in all shapes and sizes and fit into almost any home or garden setup. If you can dream it we can do it!
Small Attached Pieces
Small lattice panels are a great way to add a little interest to a bare wall attached to the exterior of a home, garden enclosure, shed or garage. You can go with something simple and rectangular like the Standard Decorative Lattice Panel or something sweeping and elegant like the Rosewood Classic Lattice Panel.
Each piece comes in its own standard sizing but can be made to order in any size that you need to complete your project. Each AZEK lattice panel is finished in white but can be painted any Sherwin Williams vinyl safe color to best suit your needs.

A little creativity goes a long way. We’ve helped customers bring their unique visions to life by crafting the intricate large-scale free-standing lattice structures in their imaginations. Each structure serves a unique purpose whether it be a visual statement, fence or a privacy screen.

Preserving the look and feel of a historical location is important when renovating. Walpole has worked with numerous clients to craft lattice panels that maintain the historical appearance of old, treasured buildings.
In 2013 a New York City customer sought Walpole’s help in replicating an historical lattice motif for their rooftop garden at a location originally built by Fred F. French in the 1920s. This distinctive lattice was handcrafted in cellular PVC, so the apartment owners will have little maintenance concerns for years as they enjoy the great looks of this classic presentation high above the bustling metropolis.
When designing an outdoor area or building facade for a client or a project a lot of thought goes into the functionality of each structure. Will it last? Is it strong? While keeping that in mind think more about the details of the project – Is this striking? Will this create a positive association in people’s memories?
A great way to accomplish both is by utilizing lattice panels as both decorative and functional structures.
Lattice has a unique way of creating a more private space while also not making a space feel suffocating. Clients have used lattice panel fencing, custom large-scale lattice pieces and even lattice fence toppers to create breathable areas of privacy. Rooftop gardens, pool areas, storage enclosures and courtyards have all been improved with beautiful and low-maintenance AZEK lattice panels and fencing.
Large scale projects are also a great way to introduce some natural elements into the design of a building or outdoor area. Just coax some ivy or another climbing plant and any outdoor area is bright to life.
Areas of Visual Interest
Creating a beautiful lasting memory is the goal of any designer or developer. A classic way to do this with an outdoor space is to utilize standard or decorative lattice panels. Panels can be custom made in any size and can be attached to bare walls or freestanding.

While beautiful in a garden, lattice panels don’t always have to be where the nature is.
Adding symmetrical panels to either side of an entryway is a great way to create some visual interest at the first point a visitor is in contact with your space.
Made with long lasting, maintenance-free AZEK wood alternative, Walpole lattices are fully customizable to truly fit the aesthetic of your building.
