      Growing clematis vines which will frame the kitchen entryway to our historic home. Very sturdy and permanent. Some nuts/bolts were not functional and would have liked them to be stainless steel/non rusting.

        Comments about Essex Half-Round Tuteurs:

        I was surprised at how flimsy this product is. It took two people to put it together (it states that in the directions, but NOT in the catalog). The screw that puts the arches together was too short and had to call customer service. They were very kind and sent out another to us which worked, except it was too long, and my husband had to put 3 metal washers on it in order for it to work properly.
        The braces which fit around the tuteur were all bent and they are REALLY flimsy. Not sure how it will hold up in our winter climate.
        I will keep it, but if I had it to do over, I would shop around for a well made tuteur even at 3 times the cost. Not a good buy.

          Assembly took an hour or so. It was a little tricky, but intructions were good and all parts were in the package.
          I have attached the tuteur to the wall of my shed with a couple of small screws. Without attaching I could envision it tipping or even falling over.
          It looks great and appears to be stable once all bolts are tightened.
          I plan to grow clematis on it.

            I bought the taller tuteur and put it against a chimney on my side yard. I have a clematis planted so it will climb up the tuteur and drape over. I am looking forward to seeing the results over the years. It is sturdy and will last a long time.

              This product will help guide a Carolina Jasmine up the side of my porch. It looks very elegant. It was very easy to put together. I just hope the plant cooperates!

              Comments about Essex Half-Round Tuteurs:

              I purchased this item a couple years ago. At that time it was only sold in a natural metal color rather then the matte black now offered. Description stated it would naturally weather. It has and is now a rust color (with some actual rust as I didn't coat it with anything). The assembly was a real pain as nuts/bolts didn't fit right due to thread issues. The metal bands are very flimsy and bend easily. The holes on either side where the bands go weren't at the same height so the bands aren't level. Luckily this is used on the back side of a patio column that faces into the back yard and when the plants are climbing it covers up these issues. Would not recommend this item for a high visibility location. This trellis does do the job of giving support to climbing plants. Just wish it was a bit sturdier and of better quality. I would recommend anchoring this trellis some how if at all possible. I tied it to the patio column with clear 50 lb. test fishing line at 5 places. This keeps it in place especially in high winds. Even though it's installed into the flower bed almost to the first band, I don't think it would have stayed standing otherwise. All in all this is just a so so product. More cons then pros but it's been doing the job for me the past 2 years. Overall though I really wouldn't recommend this item to someone else.

                Comments about Essex Half-Round Tuteurs:

                I was so disappointed in this product. From the very start, it took me forever to unwrap all the parts. And for what I paid for it/them, I felt it was of poor quality. I expected so much better. In assembling it, the surface was scratched exposing the bare metal. In order to avoid having to paint it due to rust in the future, I had to buy three cans of rustoleum to paint them prior to using them. I was terribly disappointed in this product for what I paid for them and wished I had just bout a product from a local garden center.

                  I bought this item to support my trumpet vine on its climb. The trumpet vine is small but growing and seems to readily cling to the new tutuer. The quality seems very good and the half round design stands nicely against the wall. It was easy to assemble and seems sturdy. It is very attractive.
