Looks great definitely need drill for pilot holes and ideally electric screw driver.
Fitted to ground with 75mm fencing post inserts and it is really strudy so didnt need concrete or flag base than laid a short eckign bit to fron of the arbour..
Is a 2 person job to erect but I managed alone so can be done by one person if experienced enough just takes a bit longer.
Fits perfectly in corner of the garden and feels cosy.
Screwfix were the best price and eliver came in less than the 21 days advertised.
I put it up and gave it the protective coating then dismantled and painted again as I put it up so it will be ok for 2/3 years now but will do the roof every year.
My wife is delighted with it now its up and it is a real feature to the garden making use of space that was not being used.
I highly recommend this product and saving money by sourcing throiugh screwfix.

Very Poor Quality & Service
first of all we left a note for the delivery driver to leave the Arbour near the front of garage but not against the garage as we had to open it to get it in - where did he leave it up against the garage!!
The arbour is very poor quality and not worth the money we paid at all. Their saw needs sharpened as the blade has chewed its way through some of it and you can't sand what is not there. Also their nail gun has run out of nails when doing the roof sections and just left the indent where the nails should be but without the nails. On the bench seats most of the nails have missed the supporting straps so pretty useless left like that.
The decription of the posts say they are 65mm x 65mm, what came is 55mm @ 55mm.
Overall a very poor product for a lot of money and a poor delivery service!

shire garden arbour
We love our new garden arbour. It took my husband and I about 3 hours to build it but we did need help from one of our sons to lift it into the corner of the garden. It's a lovely addition to our garden even our dogs love it

WITH THE ARBOURS THAT ARE PRESSURE TREATED WHAT TOP COAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND
Regular, unsealed wood usually dries within a few days, but pressure treated wood takes much longer to dry—either weeks or months, depending on what the wood is treated with. Painting the wood before it's dry will be a waste of time because the paint will peel away as the moisture pushes up underneath. Test the wood to see if it’s dry by dripping a few drops of water onto it. If the water soaks in, the wood is dry and porous enough to paint. If the water rests on the surface in beaded drops, the wood must be left to dry longer before painting.
Use one of the top branded timber treatments of which many are available at Screwfix
