How do you anchor a metal arbor to the ground?
Also asked, how do you secure a metal garden arch in the ground?
Garden Arbours You can secure them to hard surfaces with brackets as per wooden arches, or in soft ground you will need to screw a timber stake (about 30cm tall) to each leg, and then sink the whole stake into the ground. The arbour legs will rest on the surface.

Also to know, how do you secure Arbor to ground?
Pound the unpainted end into the ground, leaving 1' to 1-1/2 of the painted end sticking out. Use 2 galvanized pipe straps to attach the rods to each leg of the arbor. The straps don't have to be a tight fit. just put one down low, the idea is to keep it from tumbling over.
Where should I put my garden arch?
A garden arch can also add a beautiful focal point to a path or walkway. Alternatively you may wish to consider placing an arch in a secluded area of your garden with a seat beneath so that you can sit and relax in a peaceful place sheltered from the weather.
