Tension of fence will determine when arch is bent enough.

My trellis is 18 years old in this picture
The 4x4 is much older, back when treated wood was .40 arsenic, and was taken from a farm fence that was torn down when they build new neighborhood.
I used concrete mesh for the wire, and Rebar tie wire to secure everything.

Jasmine vine is growing across the arch again after 10 years of drought nearly killed it.

Made to be twisted around Rebar for highway construction.
