There are many ways to provide many years of quality in this type of situation. High-grade Cedar or Redwood will last for many years even untreated. A key to longevity is having the appropriate ground clearances, and attachments to avoid continual dampness or splash. In certain situations the horizontal beams and posts can be capped with flashing to prolong the life. Part of having a vine on a trellis or arbor is pruning and maintaining the vine so that it doesn't lay on the adjacent house or become a huge pile of vegetation.

It will also choke out that wood pergola - beautiful but destructive - cannot be contained

I love wisteria but the grape will work for my new pergola. Grapes need a lot of water and take about 3 years to produce fruit but worth the wait! There is a great article in Houzz, "How to Start a Home Vinyard" that is quite informative!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Spring Planting: Wonderful Wisteria
Fully leafed out in summer and bare in winter, deciduous wisteria allows in just the right light for every time of year.
Kelly Porter added this to Outdoor Rooms: The Perfect Pergola
This outdoor space could be a page right out of a book on medieval Renaissance gardens. Walkways lined with vine-covered pergolas were very common in these types of outdoor areas, and they provide gorgeous inspiration for our gardens, too!
Overhead, climbing vines can do the work of a hundred canvases, creating breaks in the horizontal lines of the arbor. Using small creepers such as thyme or 'dragon's blood' sedum in the cracks of the walk break up the large squares of cement.
