Custom Arbor and Pergola Installation Company
We design pergolas for several uses in your Pennsylvania landscape. You can use a pergola over a long walkway without any shade. Or more commonly as an entertaining area with chairs and lounges, or even a dining set.
A pergola is a larger landscape architecture structure, usually square or rectangular. With larger supports and an open patterned flat roof. You can train plants up the supports and across the roof to provide shade during the summer months.
You can use a pergola over a patio or deck to add shade and structure. You can also use it as landscape architecture near flowering plants or a pond.
Custom Arbor Design and Construction
An arbor is a simple small landscape architecture structure. It usually has sides of an open pattern, like latticework, and an arched roof. You can train roses, clematis or other flowering vines up and over an arbor. Adding seasonal color, or evergreen vines for year-round interest.
There are several ways to use an arbor in your Pennsylvania landscape. The arched roof makes it ideal as an entrance-way to a path or as an accent over a walkway. Where you can enjoy the fragrance of the flowers as you pass by. You could also place an arbor alongside a pathway and add a small bench or swing for a sitting area.
If you allow the vines to completely cover an arbor, you can use it block unsightly items. Such as the cooling/heating unit or the trashcans. You can also place two or more arbors around a deck or patio for shade and privacy.
What to Expect From Your Free Landscape Architecture Consultation
Landscape design consultations are very important. They set up your entire project.
Discuss Design Ideas
Your landscaping design consultation allows us to open lines of communication with you. We will look to discover answers to questions such as:
- What does your yard look like now?
- What vision do you have for this space in the future?
- Whether you want to focus on entertaining or personal space?
It is important that you share these ideas during your initial consultations so we can acheive the results you’re looking for.
Surveying the Outdoor Space
The initial visit allows your landscape designer to get a good look at the space they’ll be working with. This is perhaps the most important part of the consultation. The scope of your yard essentially determines what can and can’t be done in terms of landscaping and hardscaping.
Measurements taken will help landscapers create a model of what the finished space will potentially look like.
Estimate & Deliverables
Creating a budget beforehand will make this simpler. If the estimate is above your budget we can discuss areas to remove, or how to roll out the project in phases.
In addition to an estimate you’ll receive:
- Digital renderings
- Supporting information
What Our Clients Say About Us
I highly recommend Cider Mill Landscapes. The entire crew is knowledgable and fantastic. The trees they put in for us were large and very nice. We did a total remodel of our backyard and it looks amazing! They designed our backyard and delivered what they promised.

What a team! The entire crew who cleared invasive vines & installed 4 beautiful trees on our property went up & beyond – working hard for 3 days. We are thrilled with the final design! I love looking out of my windows & seeing the gorgeous, lush row of trees now!
Erin Cech | Google Review
We recently hired Cider Mill Landscapes to have a flagstone patio installed and could not have been happier with the experience. From the initial consultation through the completion of the project, Hillary was great to work with…The results of the patio exceeded our expectations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a landscape designer? Can’t I do this on my own?
In doing this for many years, and living and breathing it every day, there are a lot of things that go into a design. Like every other industry, there are things that an “amateur” or someone that doesn’t design on a daily basis will overlook.
There are intricate details that we know to implement into a design. As well as different aspects of nature or a landscape that we know to factor in that a homeowner may not. Especially with outdoors, there are a lot of things to take into consideration.
Do you build pergolas, decks, arbors and other outdoor structures?
Absolutely. These structures can be pre-engineered kits that we implement into a clients landscape or a custom-built structure.
Do you do outdoor kitchens and living spaces?
Absolutely. From design and build from scratch to updating and modifying existing spaces. We consider ourselves specialists in the outdoor living space arena. Regardless of the size of the project, the key to a good job is a well thought out design and plan. We custom design every project.
Do you work with budgets?
We do work with budgets.
Making sure we design to accommodate our clients is a big part of the process.
Can I get an estimate over the phone?
In most cases, the answer is no. We need a site visit and accurate measurements.
Can you perform installations if I already have plans?
Yes, however, we may make suggestions or edits to the plan.
We will not implement another design if we feel like the structural integrity of a project has been compromised or under-engineered. We also will not implement a design that has horticultural or product flaws.
Are you licensed?
We are a licensed business and a licensed Home Improvement Contractor. We are also BBB accredited
