Outdoor Rooms: The Perfect Pergola

Posted by Holli McRae on 5/14/15 1:33 PM

If you've been thinking about how to add more elegance to your terrace, patio or deck, a pergola could be the perfect choice. This beautiful structure is a wonderful way to define your outdoor space without closing it in. Pergolas are classic, architectural features that often covered the walkways in Italian Renaissance gardens. A pergola makes a versatile addition to any outdoor living area because it can be customized to fit the style of your yard, whether it's formal or casual. Pergolas don't provide full shelter, but their openness is what provides that look of simple elegance.

To obtain a bit more shade and privacy from your pergola, install the overhead slats closer together and include a variety of climbing vines and lush plants.
