Process We Follow for Trellises and Arbors

Initial Consultation and Design

The first step when adding a custom trellis or arbor to your property is to schedule a consultation with our team. We’ll come out and assess your outdoor space, discuss how you plan to use the area, and determine the optimal placement and size for your trellis or arbor.

We’ll also talk through different material and design options—from classic wood structures to more modern metal and cable styles. Our goal is to fully understand your vision so we can recommend the best custom trellis or arbor design.

Detailed Quote

After the initial consultation, we’ll provide you with a detailed quote outlining the project specifications, materials, and total estimated cost. This allows you to review the specifics and get answers to any additional questions before approving the project plans. Our quotes are comprehensive yet easy to understand so you know exactly what to expect.

Material Sourcing and Building

Once you approve the quote, we’ll begin sourcing the highest quality materials needed for your custom trellis or arbor. Whether we use sustainably harvested wood, weather-resistant aluminum, or durable steel cable, you can trust that the materials will withstand the elements in San Mateo’s climate. Our experienced team will then build your structure offsite using expert carpentry and metalworking skills.


Installation day is when the real transformation happens! Our team will arrive onsite fully prepared to install your custom trellis or arbor safely and efficiently. We’ll start by digging post holes and securing posts or footings in concrete.

Next, we’ll carefully assemble the main structure on location and anchor it firmly in place. Finishing touches include adding decorative elements, lighting, and planting around the base. Throughout the installation, we take great care to protect your property and clean up the space when finished.

Follow-Up and Maintenance

We want you to enjoy your new trellis or arbor for many years to come. So we’ll schedule a follow-up visit to inspect the structure and make any minor adjustments needed as materials settle. We’re also happy to provide tips on maintenance and upkeep.

FAQs About Trellises and Arbors in San Mateo, CA

What are the most popular materials for trellises and arbors?

The most popular materials we use are sustainably harvested wood, powder-coated aluminum, and high-quality steel cable. Wood brings a traditional, warm aesthetic. Aluminum has a modern, streamlined look. And cable allows for open, airy designs.

Should my trellis or arbor match other elements on my property?

We recommend matching or complementing existing features like fencing, decking, and siding. Consistent design and finishes create a cohesive look.

How big should the trellis or arbor be?

This depends on your space and needs. Smaller arbors (6×6 feet) are cozy. Larger ones (10×14 feet) make great outdoor living spaces. We help determine the optimal size.

How long does installation take?

Most projects take 1-2 full workdays including site prep, assembly, and finishing. We may recommend 2+ days for large or complex structures.

How deep are the posts secured into the ground?

We embed posts 2-3 feet into concrete footings below the frost line to prevent shifting and ensure stability.

Do you handle permitting or site surveys if needed?

Yes. We are happy to coordinate any permits required by the city and arrange site surveys to identify utilities on your property.

What maintenance is required after installation?

We seal wood structures annually and check hardware/connections. Cable trellises are nearly maintenance-free. We provide tips on upkeep.

What is the best time of year for installation?

Late spring to early fall when weather is mild. We can work year round but avoid extreme heat/cold.

Is a deposit required? When is payment due?

We require a 50% deposit to start the project. The balance is due upon completion before we clear the site.
