Whether you are looking to DIY or to hire, these Cedar Landscape Arches add an impactful and timeless detail to your yard.

Here are the details of the project so that you can add this beautiful feature to your landscape!


Costs for this project will vary, depending on access to material. For our local area, a 10 ft 6x6 Cedar Post rungs around $130/Post. Then you add the anchoring foam ($75/kit) or concrete ($9/Bag) and your 16' Lag bolts ($120/box) to your costs. This puts your material costs before any tool rental or labor to about $575 per arch. Sourcing different material can drastically change this pricing estimate. If you need to rent additional tools or hire labor to create your holes or cut beams to size, then you would need to add that to your overall project costs.

Take a risk and transform your own backyard!

When I dreamed this crazy idea up, I genuinely didn't know how it was going to turn out. Between Pinterest and my own imagination, I had enough faith to take the leap, and I am so beyond happy with the finished product. Give it a couple seasons and the climbing roses will transform the feel of these arches even more. If there is one thing I've learned with design over the years, it's to TAKE THE RISK!

Before and After

Builder basic backyard transformed into a garden oasis.
Before this space in the yard had no personality. It was just a blank canvas asking for some love.

Genuinely, these are one of my favorite features in our backyard! It's made such a dramatic difference in this side yard! Can you believe this before and after?! I've also made some changes to the pathways since this original build and can't wait to share this spring!
