Pergolas are covered frameworks constructed in a garden or landscape that can hold trained or climbing plants. They are garden features that form shaded walkways, passageways, or sitting areas. They are generally posts with pillars and cross-beams with a sturdy open lattice structure.
While the general population uses the term pergola and arbor interchangeably, the terms originated with more differences. The differences between Pergolas and Arbors are minimal today with the Pergola generally having a flat roof and being larger and the Arbor having a curved roof and smaller in size. Gazebos are considered Arbors.
Pergolas are built over larger areas to offer more protection than an Arbor. Good examples are covered swimming pools, covered outdoor eating areas, larger lounging areas or covering entire patio areas.
The Pergola is an outdoor frame structure, usually made from wood or powder coated metal. Normally, they consist of a roof or arch, posts, and latticework to support vines. Pergolas also are used as garden walls and ceilings that don’t block views.
There are many choices you can make when it comes to installing a Pergola in your landscape. From column choices, whether to attach or be freestanding, sizes, material, color, and more are so flexible you may have difficulty making a decision. You can use Pergolas for just about anything you can imagine and the design is only limited by your imagination.

- Built up to a projected 40′
- Installed with flat top
- Installed as a stand alone feature
- Left out in the weather
