Show me pictures of your arbor or pergola

I would like an arbor or pergola over my sidewalk leading to my back yard. Could you show me a picture of yours? Was it a kit, or did you build it? Thanks.

Here's a pic of my arbor. It is ugly as sin- which should be a clue right there that I made it myself, lol. It's just used to to support my golden hops vine, so it serves its purpose.

Nasturtiums (Tall climbing Mix) on the arbor, dahlias on the side.

South alley gate in late May:

Same gate/arbour from the back in late June:

I designed the gate/arbour and had someone build it for me.

Beautiful examples...all of them.

My DH built this arbor a few years ago. The photo is from May 2012 and shows the arbor before we planted a Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls' on the right side. A 'Rebecca' and a 'Candida' Clematis are on the left side.

Molie, I am curious as to how high up your "Rebecca" reaches on your wonderful arbor.

@Rouge: by October Rebecca made it to the top of the lattice and Candid reached the top piece of the arbor.

Actually, looking again at this photo again, I can see the tiny Wisteria we planted on the right --- kind of on a tripod of sticks. By late fall it had crossed over a few feet onto the top piece. So hopefully the Clematis and Wisteria will meet this year.
